Congrats to Tim, Gary and the whole Mustang crew! Every award for a local beer company is one more step up in Oklahoma’s beer respectability level. Here’s a little more on the award:
The World Beer Championships were founded in 1994 by the Beverage Testing Institute. It is America’s oldest international beer competition and is open to all commercially produced beers from around the world. The medal-based competition awards its honors based on a blind tasting methodology using a 100-point quality rating scale. Brewing’s Washita Wheat was rated 86 points and “highly recommended.” More than 3,300 beers were entered in the category. Washita Wheat uses Oklahoma-grown red wheat in the recipe. The brew is the first from Mustang’s new brewmaster, Gary Shellman, who has been a home brewer for 21 years.
