mainandsixIn less than a year since opening, Dennis Espinoza co-founder and brewmaster at Main & Six Brewing Company in the Historic Springfield neighborhood of Jacksonville, Fla. has garnered a gold medal at one of craft beer’s most prestigious competitions — the U.S. Open Beer Championships. The brewery’s American Brown Ale, Handsworth Brown Ale took the honors.

“This competition is significant because it accepts entries from breweries around the world and allows national winning homebrews to compete,” said Dow Scoggins, director of the U.S. Open Beer Championships in a press release. “Also, two college breweries took home medals at the U.S. Open. Niagara College won 2 golds and American Harvest Brewpub at Schoolcraft College brought home a gold and silver medal.”

Judges in the Open are only told the style of beer they will be tasting and scoring. They were not told what beers they taste. This year there were beers entered in 117 categories.

Main & Six beat out, Meddlesome Brewing Company of Tennessee that earned a silver medal and fellow Florida brewer West Palm Brewery that earned a bronze medal in the category.
