We're pleased to announce that Robust Porter has won its second consecutive Good Food Award at the 2012 awards ceremony on January 13 at San Francisco's historic Ferry Building. The ceremony was hosted by Alice Waters, founder of Chez Panisse and pioneer of farm-to-table cuisine. The Good Food Awards recognize tasty, authentic and responsibly-produced American foods across eight categories; beer, spirits, charcuterie,cheese, pickles, chocolate, coffee and preserves.
This brings Robust Porter's medal count to six winning medals: two Good Food Awards, two gold medals from the Mondial de la Biere, one gold medal from the Cleveland International Beer Festival and one gold medal from the Great American Beer Festival.
Peter's sister Diane, Smuttynose's Left Coast Emmisary, accepted our medal and reported back that a beef brisket braised with Robust Porter, made by Wise Sons Delicatessen, was among the most delicious dishes at the Awards reception. Diane was very gracious to represent us this year and we certainly appreciate it.
Smuttynose happily sends a big "Thank You" to Emily, Jen and the rest of the Seedling Projects staff for organizing and growing this great event.
