CHICAGO - The August Schell Brewing Co has been awarded a gold medal from the Beverage Testing Institute (BTI) for its 2013 Snowstorm beer.
The recipe for Schell's Snowstorm changes every year. This year's recipe is Schell's interpretation of a Belgian Strong Golden Ale.
Judges from the BTI were especially impressed with this year's recipe, awarding Snowstorm a gold medal, 90 points and an exceptional rating. They described it as "Bright golden yellow color. Aromas of spicy peach souffl and pastry with a subtle, dry-yet-fruity medium body and a long, elegant interplay of chamomile tea, acacia honey, pepper bread and spiced nuts. Delicious and well crafted."
Schell's Snowstorm was available starting in November and can still be found in some stores, bars and restaurants today.
