Weapon of Self Destruction…The first beer we bottled for the 2014 World Beer Cup

Riff Raff Brewing Company  won a bronze medal for its Weapon of Self Destruction Russian Imperial Stout at the World Beer Cup competition in Denver, Colo., on April 11, 2014. The winter seasonal beer garnered a third-place finish in the British-Style Imperial Stout category out of 42 entries from craft breweries around the world.

The World Beer Cup competition occurs every two years in conjunction with the annual Craft Brewers Conference. This year’s competition included nearly 4,800 beers from more than 1,400 breweries in 58 countries.

Riff Raff makes the Weapon of Self Destruction beer once each year as a winter seasonal ale released in mid December. We may have a special very limited release soon, though. Stay tuned!
