Old Rasputin Wins Gold at the Stockholm Beer & Whisky Festival

North Coast Brewing’s Old Rasputin Russian Imperial Stout won Gold at the 2012 Stockholm Beer & Whisky Festival. The international event, in its 21st year, took place over two weekends in September and October, and saw a record number of more than 1,500 beer entries, from which Rasputin stood out, placing at the top of the Porter/Stout 6% och över category.

Old Rasputin Russian Imperial Stout is produced in the tradition of 18th Century English brewers who supplied the court of Russia’s Catherine the Great. This ground-breaking beer seems to develop a cult following wherever it goes. It’s a rich, intense brew with big complex flavors and a warming finish. We’re gratified that the judges in Stockholm agree.

A panel of international judges at the Brussels Beer Challenge awarded the Gold Medal for Belgian Style Saison to an American beer—Le Merle from North Coast Brewing Co.

Looks like we’ve made up for that.”

Luc De Raedemaeker, co-founder and tasting director of the Brussels Beer Challenge wrote to us, “Congratulations, your beer is really amazing and you deserve your gold medal in a truly classic Belgian style.”

Brother Thelonious Review by BeerSweden

Brother Thelonious“Trading 4s is a jazz term used to describe when two soloists play alternating four-bar phrases, as though they were having a lively conversation with chords.

“In North Coast Brewing’s tribute beer to Jazz legend Thelonious Monk the brewery trades 4s not with musical instruments but with yeast and malt. The result is a playful duet in the chord of B (B standing of course for Belgium).” Read the whole review on the BeerSweden website.
