Representatives from Prince Rupert's Wheelhouse Brewery Company spent the weekend in Vancouver sharing the now not so secret broth of their Smokehouse Porter with the North Coast craft brewers taking on a growing level of competition in the Craft Beer industry and tempting the judges with one of the signature brews of the local brewery.
When the froth had settled at the Saturday night finale, the Rupert brewery that is tucked away in the city's Atlin Terminal area had claimed a Bronze medal for their efforts.
|And the Bronze goes to!|
The Bronze medal for Prince Rupert comes in the Smoked Beer competition, which saw Coal HarbourBrewing Co. claim the Gold with their Smoke and Mirrors Imperial Smoked Ale, while Waterloo, Ontario's Brick Brewing Co. collected the Silver for their Smoked Applewood Roggenbier.

The Canadian Brewing Awards provided the launching point for a celebration of the brews at the Vancouver Craft Beer Week which continues through this week with Three Day Beer Festival from June 3 to 5 at the PNE.
