FiftyFifty Brewing Co. was awarded four medals (Gold, Silver x 2 and Bronze) in four separate categories of the inaugural California Craft Brewers Cup (CCBC). This medal tally placed FiftyFifty Brewing 2nd among the 194 independent craft breweries that took part. The competition, a partnership with the Brewers Guilds of California and the California Craft Brewers Association (CCBA) recognizes the best craft beers in the state of California.

FiftyFifty Brewing, who earned the title of 2018 Brewery Group of the Year at the Great American Beer Festival, was recognized in the four categories for a variety of beers with ‘Alterior Motives’ taking Gold in the CA Common category. Founded in 2007, FiftyFifty Brewing is based in Truckee, California, and has been making award-winning beer since its first offering in 2008. 

“While the awards themselves are rewarding for our brew team, they’re really a measure of consistent quality in which we take great pride. We’re distributed in 25 states and 14 countries but California is our home which makes this award extra special,” said Andy Bar, co-founder, and CEO.

“The California Craft Brewers Cup was created to showcase California craft brewers’ immense talent and innovation,” said California Craft Brewers Cup Competition Director, Mike Moore. “The awarded beers are truly of the highest caliber and showcase the talent and dedication of the breweries that made them.”

Winning beers were determined by a panel of more than 80 expert judges, who placed the winning beers in 61 categories. The winning breweries were announced at the CCBC awards ceremony in Long Beach, California on September 12, during the 2019 California Craft Beer Summit.
