Columbus-based brewery and pizza destination, ZwanzigZ, took home some nice awards at the Great American Beer Festival this weekend. ZwanzigZ won Small Brewpub of the Year and Mike Rybinski [brewmaster] and Trent Fleener [assistant brewer] won Small Brewpub Brewer of the Year at GABF 2016.
The brewery also took home silver medals for their chocolate beer, The Ticket, which beat out 44 others, and their Frankenwald Eisbock took second out of 29 entries.
Indiana beer historian Bob Ostrander verified on Sunday that Columbus-based ZwanzigZ is the only Indiana brewpub to gain Brewpub of the Year award since its 1999 inception.
