Ocean View Brewing Company wins gold at New York International Beer Competition
REHOBOTH BEACH — Since opening in March 2021, Ocean View Brewing Company has won praise for its twist on beachy favorites such as fried green tomatoes with pizza accouterments and a fried lobster tail with glazed donuts.
The Delaware brewpub recently received a gold medal at the 11th Annual New York International Beer Competition.
The winning entry, Got Waves, is a Kolsch-style beer. “It’s a crisp, clean beer that’s perfect for beach activities,” Taylor Smith, who oversees the brewing operations, said in a statement.
“I’m so proud of our ‘brew crew’ at both restaurants,” Jimmy Valm, who manages brewing operations at the brewpubs, said. “Their creativity, skill and passion for brewing have given us a remarkable reputation in a relatively short amount of time.”
Scott Kammerer, president of SoDel Concepts, agreed. “We are known for brewing high-quality, world-class beers,” he said. “To see a gold medal for Ocean View Brewing Company so quickly after opening confirms that we are succeeding.”
