This past Friday at the Craft Brewer’s Conference in Denver, Colorado Dominion Brewing Co.‘s Candi received the Gold Medal in the Belgian Tripel Category at the World Beer Cup. There were 59 entries in the category but only one could win, beloved Candi!
Candi was released at Rams Head restaurants this past October as one of our fall seasonals. It’s a favorite among many, brewed with Belgian Candy, and weighing in 9.5% abv. Saaz and Halltertau hops give this Belgian-style Tripel a clean, floral aroma. Golden in color, the soft sweetness of apricot and pear linger nicely against a dry finish with minimal hop bitterness.
