During the Alltech Craft Brews & Food Fest Dr. Pearse Lyons presented the Alltech Commonwealth Cup 2015 to Dayton Beer Company. Receiving the award in the picture with Dr. Lyons is John Wiley. The winning beer is a Belgium style golden strong ale.
I asked John if Dayton Beer Company is The Ohio Craft Brewery. He says that they say, “Drink local, drink craft.” He says that Dayton now has 12 craft breweries.
Dr. Lyons told me that there were 300 entries from 100 countries in the Alltech Commonwealth Cup competition. He says a message that comes from this is that people are going to unique beers. Forty percent of all the beer taps in America are now serving craft beers.
