KC Bier Co. was the only brewery in Kansas City to win a medal at the 2018 World Beer Cup, and now it's releasing that beer for sale in bottles, the Kansas City Business Journal reports.
The brewer won a silver medal on May 3 for its Winterbock lager in the German-style Doppelbock or Eisbock category. Earning a medal at the World Cup is a huge accomplishment because it’s considered one of the world’s most prestigious beer contests, with some of the toughest competition.
Winterbock is a dark, full-bodied lager with caramel, chocolate and coffee malt flavors, warming alcohols, low bitterness and a slightly sweet finish. It’s a seasonal offering that will be released on tap and in six-packs of 12-ounce bottles on Nov. 12. It will be available through mid-February.
