Once again, we have further third-party validation of the quality and potential of our flagship beer ‘1812 Amber.'" Mr. Scozzafava continued, "Since taking control of the brewing and bottling of our products, we have entered our beer in now four international events, and in all four cases KEGS has won a gold (x2), silver or bronze medal, which validates making the investment to bring this in-house."
In August 2022, 1812 Brewing Company's War of 1812 Amber Ale was awarded the Gold Medal in the "Amber Ale" category for the United States in the prestigious World Beer Awards (www.worldbeerawards.com) and went on to represent the United States in the international competition. In April 2022, War of 1812 Amber Ale was awarded a bronze medal in the "American Style Amber/Red Ale" category in the 2022 New York International Beer Competition (https://nyibeercompetition.com/) held in Rockefeller Center.

Finally, Mr. Scozzafava said, "We are working diligently and creatively to develop a direct-to-consumer method that would allow us to distribute War of 1812 Amber Ale - as well as KEGS' other releases - across the United States in a potentially transformational new strategy."
