"Third-best Gose in the world -- something like that doesn't happen by chance, or overnight," said SingleSpeed founder Dave Morgan. "To have one acknowledged in this manner is a truly beautiful thing and I could not be more proud of our team."

Iowa Brewing Co. of Cedar Rapids also was awarded a silver in the American-Style Amber Lager category for their Tragedy of the Commons beer.
