C.B. & Potts Wins Silver at North American Beer Awards!

FORT COLLINS, CO – C.B. & Potts Restaurant and Brewery was honored recently by the North American Brewers’ Association at the 20th Annual North American Beer Awards in Idaho Falls, Idaho. The RAM Restaurant Group, owners and operators of C.B. & Potts, was awarded seven medals, including a silver out of the Fort Collins location and a gold for their seasonal Barefoot Wit which is now on tap at all Colorado locations! “We are excited to celebrate our medals at this year’s North American Beer Awards! Huge accolades go to our team of talented and passionate brewers,” stated Director of Brewery Operations, Dave Leonard who was elated with the haul.

Joe Bowden and his brewing team from the Fort Collins C.B. & Potts brewing team won silver for their Irascible Zipper Barely Wine in the American-Style Barley Wine category. “It’s always exciting to be recognized for hard work and patience. Our silver medal winning Irascible Zipper, was brewed in 2014 and was the first barleywine we’ve made at CB & Potts. It takes about 10 months for the flavors to start singing together, with the sharp edges rounding off and the intense flavors begin to meld,” says Head Brewer Joe Bowden. Brewer Jeff Eaton describes the beer as “a complex beer, driven by a rich malty aroma and intense hop flavors with subtle but warming alcohol.”

In 2016, C.B. & Potts “Celebrates Great Beers For 20 Years!” In 1996, the first brewery location opened and began brewing craft beers. Their award-winning brewery program continues to be recognized as an industry leader for creating highly acclaimed and drinkable selections.
