Thompson Island Brewing Company, a branch of SoDel Concepts, was awarded a silver medal at the 2023 Great American Beer Festival (GABF) competition, hosted and presented by the Brewers Association®.

Thompson Island was recognized in the Mixed-Culture Brett beer-style category for ‘Never Been Wrong’, which was aged in white wine barrels for 6 months with wild yeast. This process created a unique, tart quality with notes of oak and orchard fruits.

The Brew Team will celebrate their win in the Thompson Island Beer Garden on Thursday, September 28th from 5:00 PM – 7:00 PM.  

“I am so proud of what the brew team has accomplished,” Nelia Dolan, Vice President of Southern Delaware Brewing, said in a statement. “When we opened in 2019, our goal was to brew World Class Beer. The recognition of our peers at the GABF validates that we are doing just that.” 

The Great American Beer Festival comprises of 250 judges from around the world, as well as more than 300 volunteers. Throughout three phases over nine days, 9,200+ entries were evaluated from 2,033 breweries from all 50 states plus Washington, D.C., and Puerto Rico.

“The Great American Beer Festival competition serves as a platform for the finest brews from around the world to undergo rigorous scrutiny to earn the title of ‘the best of the best,’” Chris Williams, competition director of the Great American Beer Festival, said. “The beer community’s unwavering commitment to pushing the frontiers of innovation and quality is truly commendable. The Brewers Association takes great pride in recognizing the achievements of this year’s victors.”
