KC Bier Co. wins silver medals at the Great International Beer Fest & Cider Competition


KC Bier Co. learned today that it won three silver medals at last weekend’s Great International Beer Fest & Cider Competition in Providence, Rhode Island. 

The Waldo-based, German-style brewery took second place for German Wheat Beer for its Hefeweizen, Wheat Beer – Weizenbock-Dunkel Weisse for its Weizenbock and Continental Pilsner for its Pils.

St. Louis’ Urban Chestnut also had a strong showing, taking gold for German Wheat Beer (Schnickelfritz), Helles Lager (Zwickel) and Common Cider (Bushelhead), and a bronze for Continental Pilsner (Aramis).

KC Bier Co. marketing manager James Stutsman tells The Pitch that this was the brewery’s first professional competition, and he was understandably excited with the results. 

“This just shows that we can brew beer just as good as anybody in the world,” Stutsman says.

Nice work from a brewery that opened its doors in February.

Here’s the full rundown of winners of the 18th annual competition.

Also of note, KC Bier Co. taps its newest season, Winterbock, on Monday, November 24, and takes over the taps at Rock & Run Brewery (110 East Kansas, Liberty) on Tuesday, November 25.
