Am I biased towards anything that the Saranac Brewery creates? Yes, but that's because it has a phenomenal reputation that is backed up by several awards, including the most recent award! The official beer of this year's Boilermaker is Wild Hop Pils and this week it took home the Gold in the US Open Beer Championships.

The announcement came today via The Saranac Facebook page:

I can't wait! The Boilermaker is less than a week away and this delicious and refreshing brew is what I will hopefully be enjoying a lot of after the race, depending on whether or not I finish. Pray for me!
