In the largest World Beer Cup to date, with a record 6,600 entries, Figueroa Mountain Brewing Co. was one of only 30 breweries to win Gold in the 2016 competition. The winning beer was I Dunkeled in My Pants, a Bavarian Dark Lager, in the European-Style Dark/Muenchner Dunkel category.
“To win a gold medal at this level is truly an honor and a testament to our brew team. We are especially thrilled that one of our European lagers fared so well against the German entries,” says Fig Mountain’s President, Jaime Dietenhofer. “Each competition gets more and more competitive and it is so humbling to be amongst so many talented brewers.”
In addition to the congratulatory support from other breweries at World Beer Cup, which takes place every two years at the industry-wide Craft Brewers Conference, the team from Figueroa Mountain received commendation and laughs regarding the beer’s name. “While we take brewing very seriously, we also like to have fun. We’re so glad that people are finding humor in the name ‘I Dunkeled in My Pants’ and we enjoy watching customers order the beer and giggle,” Dietenhofer explains. “Craft beer is about having fun with friends and family and enjoying a quality product while doing so.”
Figueroa Mountain was one of only two Central Coast breweries to win gold at World Beer Cup. Central Coast Brewing Company won Gold in the American-Style Strong Pale category for their beer “Lucky Day”.
