Three Philosophers Shines In State Contest
COOPERSTOWN – Brewery Ommegang tied with Roscoe Beer Co. of Delaware County in a blind taste test featuring the five breweries that received the most online votes in the Taste NY Inaugural Craft Beer Challenge.
Governor Cuomo announced the grand winners Wednesday evening at Pier A on Battery Place in Manhattan.
The rest of the top five were Genesee Brewing, Rochester, Prison City Pub & Brewery, Auburn, and Southern Tier Brewing, Lakewood.
All of the finalists in the call-in contest that preceded the blind taste test were from Upstate New York, a fact not lost on amny.com, which headlined its story, “New York City Snubbed in Beer Taste Challenge.”
