Two San Antonio breweries, Künstler Brewing and Ranger Creek Brewing & Distilling, returned from Denver as medal winners at the 2018 Great American Beer Festival.
Künstler and Ranger Creek won silver and bronze medals, respectively, for their takes on chili beers, or beers brewed with peppers. The medals were firsts for the breweries, as they join San Antonio's only other Great American Beer Festival medal winner, Freetail Brewing Co., which won a gold medal last year for its La Muerta imperial stout in the aged beer category.
Künstler's Chamuco, meaning devil in Spanish, is described on popular beer app Untappd as 7 percent alcohol by volume and brewed with chocolate, vanilla, cinnamon and three types of chili peppers. It is also brewed with cacao beans sourced from farms in Ecuador and Peru that use regenerative farming practices.
"It's unreal," Künstler Brewing co-owner Vera Deckard said. "I'm still way over the clouds."
