Cumming brewery tops all competitors at this year's U.S. Open Beer Championship

By AccessWDUN staff

Breweries from Vermont to Vietnam sent in more than 6,000 beers representing over 100 different styles for the 2017 U.S. Open Beer Championship, and when the dust had settled a Cumming-based company had topped them all.

Cherry Street Brewing Co-op was named Grand National Champion after winning three gold medals, one silver medal and two bronze medals.

Its three gold-medal-winning beers were O.A.S.I.S Imperial Stout, Ta Ta Pilsner and Damebier Maple Strong Ale.

Located in Cumming's Vickery Village, in partnership with Rick Tanner's Grille & Bar, Cherry Street began as a homebrew club in Fort Collins, Colorado.  Its name comes from the street in Fort Collins where the initial homebrew club met and brewed. 

Several other Georgia breweries came home with medals.  They are included in the full list of medalists which can be found here.
