Thompson Island named Delaware Brewery of the Year again
REHOBOTH BEACH – Thompson Island Brewing Company is Delaware’s Brewery of the Year, according to judges at the 11th Annual New York International Beer Competition for the second year in a row.
Located in the state’s resort area, the brewpub was owned by SoDel Concepts in 2019.
“It is a testament to our brewers that we’ve won so many awards so quickly,” said Scott Kammerer, president of SoDel Concepts. “What’s more, our beers are well-received in all our restaurants — not just in Thompson Island. Considering that we have so many craft breweries at the beach that says something.”
In addition to winning best brewery honors, Thompson Island received a silver medal for Ticket to Rye, an IPA created by head brewer Justin Leahy after joining the team.
Thompson Island IPA, the brewery’s flagship beer, won a bronze in the American IPA category. It is not the first time that the beer has been honored. It won a gold medal for an American IPA at the 2020 U.S. Open Beer Contest, and it was included in the Beer Travel Guide’s Best IPAs of 2020 list
The experimental beer Yes, Chef! also earned a bronze medal. The recipe includes Phantasm, an extraction made from Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc grape.
