Mother Earth Brewing Captures Medals at Prestigious Beer Competition
Mother Earth Brewing has enjoyed an unprecedented welcome into the world of craft beer since its official entry into the business just over a year ago. Now, not only are consumers boasting about Mother Earth’s beers; professional beer judges are having their say too… and it’s more pleasant news.
On April 17th, Mother Earth Brewing participated in the mega popular Hickory Hops Beer Festival, held in downtown Hickory, NC. The festival included the well respected Carolinas Championship of Beers, a blind-judged beer competition. Over 150 beers, in 85 style categories were carefully analyzed by an assortment of certified beer judges and brewers. Gold, silver and bronze medals were offered in each category.
Mother Earth Brewing was recognized for their superior products. In fact, they won a silver medal for their Endless River Kolsch and a gold medal for their Dark Cloud Munich-Style Dunkel.
President of Mother Earth Brewing, Trent Mooring offered his thoughts about the highly competitive Carolina Championship of Beers “I sampled a number of the beers entered in the event, and I have no doubt that North Carolina is producing some of the best craft beer in the country- we have every reason to be extremely proud of our State, and I’m certainly honored for Mother Earth to be recognized with a silver and gold medal.”
Mother Earth Brewery is a 20 barrel craft brewery that bottles and kegs beer for sale in its Kinston, NC Taproom, and for distribution in bars, restaurants and retail locations throughout North Carolina.
