GABF and White Labs
By Megan deKorne, White Labs
"Hopefully you are well on your way to recovery after the recent Great American Beer Festival. We enjoyed seeing all of our customers and want to extend congratulatory wishes to all of the winners as well! White Labs greatly appreciates your business and we thank you for your continued loyalty.
(Editor's note: Nearly half of medal winners - more than 48 percent - were White Labs customers, with the highest percentage being gold medal winners).
We also hope you enjoyed our annual after party at the Shag Lounge! Focusing on a baseball theme, we celebrated the release of our PurePitch packaging with Cracker Jacks, Big League Chew, light up (foam) baseball bats and, of course, our crew dressed the part.
Our booth carried on that same theme with a PurePitch game where winners could win hangover kits, bandanas, coozies, and some lucky participants walked away with their very own Yeastman!"
