Joshua Cotton of Brooklyn, New York, a member of the New York City Homebrewers Guild, won a silver medal in Category 26: European Sour Ale in the 2023 National Homebrew Competition Final Round in San Diego. Colton’s Berliner Weisse was chosen second out of 162 entries in the category.
Joshua shares this about his award-winning Berliner Weisse:
This is a variation of a tart 2.4% beer that I have been brewing as a lawnmower beer for years. It’s a crisp and tart summer beer that’s a crowd-pleaser. The addition of lactic acid brings the pH down to be in style as a Berliner Weisse.
