Massachusetts breweries win gold

Two New England breweries recently won gold medals at the Great American Beer Festival. Chelsea’s Mystic Brewery took home the gold medal in the Indigenous Beer category for Vinland Two, a beer brewed with a native New England saccharomyces yeast strain cultured from Norridgewock, Maine, blueberries.

“The Vinland microbe hunting project has taken years of patience and vision for all of us,” said Mystic founder Bryan Greenhagen. “To see it earn a gold in its first year as a submission to the GABF contest is a great honor to receive from the brewing community.”
