2022 Virginia Beer Cup Silver Medal Winners

Robot Cowboy NEIPA and Porch Sipping Old-Fashioned Lemonade Gose Garner Silver Medals for Hazy IPA & European Sour

WAYNESBORO, VA – (August 1, 2022)- Central Virginia’s Stable Craft Brewing at Hermitage Hill can add two Silver Medals to it’s ever-growing list of recent accolades.

The brewery, which was recently awarded the 2022 Green Brewery of the Year, won two Silver Medals at the Virginia Craft Brewers Guild Virginia Craft Beer Cup Annual Awards Ceremony in Ashburn, Virginia.  A record 106 breweries competed in this year’s competition which included 14 new participants! A record 396 beers were entered in the competition.  The Virginia Craft Beer Cup continues to be the largest state competition of its kind in the United States.

According to Craig Nargi, owner of Stable Craft Brewing, “We couldn’t be more proud of winning these two prestigious awards.  It’s a real tribute to our team of brewers and associates at Stable Craft.  Our Robot Cowboy NEIPA has always been a popular fan favorite and it’s great to see our Old-Fashioned Lemonade Gose receive recognition as well.”

Stable Craft Brewing is currently preparing for its creative, upcoming fall releases like Stable Craft’s Pumpkin Spiced Latte Porter and a Mexican Hot Chocolate Stout.

Stable Craft Brewing’s rural location offers acres of open farmland with multiple covered and uncovered outdoor locations to keep guests physically distant while enjoying craft beer, cider, wine and food.  Several other safety measures have been implemented to provide guests with a safe and fun experience.

Stable Craft Brewing, recently named the 2022 Green Brewery of the Year, is the first brewery on the East Coast to launch a zero food waste initiative for its award-winning brewery, restaurant and wedding and banquet facility. The sustainable brewery also grows its own hops, utilizes the brewing wastewater to water their hops, co-ops with a local farmer to use the spent grain for food for the cattle and has planted 1,100 trees on the farm to help with erosion and air quality. Stable Craft offers a sustainable tour by reservation only for guests to get a first-hand look at all of its sustainable initiatives.
