San Juan Brew­ing Takes Home Top Place for Their ESB at the Wash­ing­ton State Brew­ers Awards

Fri­day Har­bor— July 27, 2018 —San Juan Brew­ing Com­pa­ny proud­ly took home a Gold medal in the ESB (Extra Spe­cial Bit­ter) cat­e­go­ry at the Wash­ing­ton State Brew­ery asso­ci­a­tion awards.  With over 390 brew­eries in Wash­ing­ton State tak­ing home any prize is a feat – let alone less then a year after opening. 

Jesse Vis­ciglia had this to say about the award “The ESB, a fan­tas­tic beer, exem­pli­fies our ded­i­ca­tion to beers that are bal­anced, high­ly drink­able and made with the high­est qual­i­ty ingre­di­ents in the world”

The award-win­ning beer can be found on tap at the San Juan Brew­ery and select restau­rants and bars in San Juan, Skag­it and What­com county.
