Full Sail Brewing Company’s Session Premium Lagers Bring Home More Gold

Full Sail’s Session Premium Lager and Session Black added three more gold medals to the brewery’s extensive list of awards and accolades. At the U.S. Open Beer Championships, with over 1,200 beers in fifty different categories, both Session and Session Black took home gold medals. In addition, Full Sail’s LTD 03 pilsner earned silver and Pale took a bronze making Full Sail one of the top scoring breweries in the competition. Session Black also won a gold medal at the Los Angeles International Commercial Beer Competition held at the L.A. County Fair, Session garnered a silver and Full Sail’s Amber brought home a bronze.

“From our Session Lager to our bourbon barrel-aged beers, balance and elegance are our defining brewery characteristics. We don’t brew our beers to win medals, but we are honored when we do. We know that you, our customers, are the ultimate judges and we strive to consistently brew elegant, complex, and balanced beers with you in mind. Over the years, our passion and commitment have earned us a long list of awards and accolades. Thanks to all our beer fans and friends for your ongoing support,” said Irene Firmat, Full Sail Brewing’s Founder and CEO.

Since its release in 2005, Session Premium Lager has earned eight gold medals and was recently voted “The Best Craft Lager” by craft beer lovers in a poll conducted by The Full Pint. In 2007 it was named The World’s Best Premium Lager at the World Beer Awards and America’s Best Premium Lager at the 2010 World Beer Awards. Session Black, released in 2009, has since earned 6 gold medals and was named “One of America’s Best Beers” by Men’s Journal Magazine. Both of Full Sail’s Session lagers have truly earned their place at the bar. Not to mention the barbeque. To view a list of Full Sail’s awards visit www.fullsailbrewing.com/awards
