The GABF Silver medal was awarded to Right Brain Brewery for its beer Concrete Dinosaur. Concrete Dinosaur competed against 84 entries in the Rye Beer category. Right Brain’s Concrete Dinosaur is a uniquely brewed brown rye IPA.
“We are always excited to win medals for our beer in competition. In many ways it validates the hard work and long hours put into the process,” Said Head Brewer Nick Panchame.

Right Brain Brewery Owner Russell Springsteen added, “Winning a medal at the GABF is very difficult considering over 1,500 breweries are entering nearly 7,000 beers to compete against. This medal is more proof that great beer is coming from Traverse City, as well as Michigan. Right Brain’s silver medal along with the other Michigan medals, is the reason we are called the Great Beer State.”

The 2015 GABF winners were selected by an international panel of 242 expert judges from the record number of 6,647 entries received from 1,552 breweries.

“American brewers continue to create innovative, flavorful high quality beers. That was on full display at this year’s Great American Beer Festival,” said Chris Swersey, competition manager. "The Great American Beer Festival continues to showcase the best this country’s brewers have to offer.”
