Gezellig wins big (again)
20 Oct 2020
For a brewery that’s only a little more than a year old, Gezellig Brewing Co. sure does know how to rack up the awards.
On Friday, Oct. 16, the Newton-based brewery won a silver medal at the 2020 Great American Beer Festival — its third silver medal win from the competition since the taproom opened in June 2019. This time, Gezellig’s Hugzilla won the silver-lined honor in the rye hazy double IPA category.
Recently, Gezellig scored even more medals at 2020 San Diego International Beer Competition. In addition to earning the title of “Champion Brewery,” Gezellig — one of the few Midwest breweries to receive awards from the San Diego contest — won three gold medals, a silver medal and a bronze medal.
