The brewery won the prestigious annual Alpha King Challenge, held at Rock Bottom Denver during GABF week, with its 2X4 Imperial IPA. The Hopunion-sponsored contest pits dozens of brewers against each other for the title of “the holy grail of well-balanced and drinkable, yet highly-hopped ales.”
168 beers were entered into the competition. Stone Enjoy by 11.09.12 IPA took second place while Alpine Bad Boy IPA took third. H/T to Nathan Smith for tweeting out the winners.
Pizza Port won the competition last year.
On an unrelated note, the Great American Beer Festival awards will be held on Saturday morning.
