Hood River, OR – October 11, 2016 – Sip Northwest, the locally owned magazine that showcases regional wines, beers and spirits, has awardedSession Premium Lager and Full Sail Bourbon Barrel Aged Wheatwine Ale first-place prizes in their annual Best of the Northwest Awards. The new and innovative Full Sail Blood Orange Wheat took home second place in the wheat category.

“We know that our customers are the ultimate judges and we strive to consistently brew balanced beers that taste good with them in mind,” says Full Sail Executive Brewmaster Jamie Emmerson. “We’re excited about winning Sip Magazine’s Best of the Northwest Awards and we hope it will inspire even more people to taste our balanced and ridiculously tasty beers.”

Session Premium Lager is no stranger to first-place wins. With 22 gold medals around its neck (if it had a neck), Session’s first-place Best of the Northwest Award is an honor, but not a surprise. The original Session is a classic, all-malt lager that’s crisp, smooth, and refreshing, consistently making it the winner of multiple gold medals at top national and international competitions.

Originally brewed and released in 2014, Wheatwine Ale, another Sip first-place winner, was so good the brewers decided barrel aging would make it even better. Very tasty and unique, Full Sail’s Bourbon Barrel Wheatwine Ale was aged in Wild Turkey bourbon barrels for 12 months, rounding out this big beer by adding a rich tannic structure. New this year to Full Sail’s Pub Series, Blood Orange is a refreshing wheat beer with a subtle blood orange twist. It has become a new favorite of beer drinkers, and its second-place Best of the Northwest win validates its delicious taste.

Sip Northwest will be celebrating with a Best of the Northwest Tap Takeover, on October 27th in Seattle, Washington’s Fremont neighborhood.
