STEVENS POINT, WI (Ben Caxton) — A Central Wisconsin brewer got some top honors this year for the US Open Beer Championship. The Stevens Point Brewery took home a gold medal this year for their Point Special Lager. Spokesperson Julie Birrenkott says they beat out 50 other beers for the honor. “To even get a chance to compete with all these other breweries and win an award is really something now because of how saturated the market is.” The brewery also took home a bronze medal for their Whole Hog Lord James Scotch in the Scottish Ale category. Sprecher, Ahnapee, and Lakefront were the only other Wisconsin breweries to win multiple awards.
