Chatham Brewing Wins New York International Beer Competition Medals

Award winning Chatham brews competed against over 600 beers

CHATHAM, N.Y. (March 13, 2019) — Chatham Brewing, Columbia County’s first brewery located in New York’s upper Hudson Valley, took home three medals at the New York International Beer Competition (“NYIBC”) which took place on Feb. 10 in New York City. Over 600 brews and 14 countries participated in the 8th annual event.

Judging at the competition was based on 30 different categories as well as price.

Chatham Brewing won Silver Medal in the German-Style Doppelbock category for Chatham Brewing Bock & Bock, Bronze Medal in the Robust Porter category for Spike Devil Porter, and the honor of New York Dopplebock Brewery of the Year.

“We are beyond grateful for the incredible appreciation and reception of our brews at the NYIBC event last month. Winning three medals across three different categories would not have been possible without the hard work of our immensely talented team and head brewer, Matt Perry. We take great pride in our brews and our home here in Columbia County so I am truly humbled to accept these wins on behalf of the entire Chatham family,” said Tom Crowell, co-founder and owner.
