Fat Point adds a silver medal for its Ryeght Angle IPA

Fat Point Brewing’s Bru Man Chu has been awarded a gold medal at the 2018 U.S. Open Beer Championship – the only competition to include beers from professional breweries and award-winning home breweries.  

Judges awarded Bru Man Chu the top honor in the Belgian Strong Specialty Ale category.

“It’s a big point of pride that for such a young brewery, we’re bringing home these accolades,” said Fat Point Head Brewer Jessy Abbate. “It reflects the passion and commitment of the Fat Point family and our love for brewing great beer in a great community.”

Bru Man Chu was not the only Fat Point beer to be recognized at the prestigious U.S. Open Beer Championship.  The brewer’s Ryeght Angle IPA was awarded a silver medal in the Rye/Roggen Beer category.

Fat Point’s sister brewery, Big Storm, also won a silver in the International Style Pale Ale category for its Arcus Southern IPA.

This year more 6,300 beers were entered in the U.S. Open Beer Championship, with judges from Canada, England and the United States.

Fat Point’s Bru Man Chu is an 11% ABV Belgian-style tripel, while its Ryeght Angle is brewed with rye for a spicy, hoppy IPA that’s approachable and easy to drink.

The 6.2% ABV Big Storm Arcus is a hoppy and vibrant IPA that is brewed with two-row American pale ale malts.  The addition of locally sourced wildflower honey lends a subtle sweetness for a clean and easy finish.

Fat Point’s taproom is located at 611 Charlotte St. in Punta Gorda. 

Big Storm has taprooms in Cape Coral, Clearwater and Odessa, FL.
