Prescott, AZ:  May 23, 2017    After continued award-winning relevance in the fast-growing and changing craft beer industry in Arizona, Prescott Brewing Company® has just received  it’ 5th International Competition award since it opened in 1994.  After opening in 1994, PBC® PBC entered the World Beer Cup Competition, and proudly received a GOLD Medal for Lodgepole Light in the American Lager or Cream Ale category and a SILVER Medal for its Ponderosa IPA in the India Pale Ale category, both in 1998.  After a short dry spell, PBC once again was recognized for excellence in  2004 with its Christmas City Ale (our holiday spiced beer brewed to honor Prescott, AZ….Arizona’s Christmas City since 1994) for which it received a Bronze Medal in the Herb & Spice category.

Brewmaster and co-owner with his wife Roxane, John Nielsen decided to spread his wings this year and chose to enter two of PBC’s most loved beers into the Australian International Beer Awards (AIBA) competition.  Both of the award-winning beers were brewed and packaged at PBC’s production plant out by the Prescott Airport, which began production in 2011.  These two beers are recently joined by Palepricot Pale Ale, Manzanita Red and Lodgepole light also now available in canned packaging.  They can be purchased at the brewpub downtown at 130 W. Gurley Street inside Bashford Courts Atrium Mall, and at select independent liquor stores, Trader Joes, Whole Foods, Sprouts Markets, and some of the big box grocery stores and liquor megastores in the valley and throughout AZ. 

“Thank you Prescott for supporting us since 1994, helping us to grow and continue to be a part of this amazing community “ says co-owner Roxane Nielsen.  John Nielsen adds “we hope to continue to be recognized throughout the state, country and even more internationally, as we pursue our quest for longevity, consistency and commitment to the craft beer revolution”
