Home » First-Ever CLT Brewed Awards Winners Announced

The first-ever CLT Brewed Awards launch the start of CLT Brewed Week, presented and organized by the Charlotte Independent Brewers Alliance (CIBA). Certified judges from the Carolina BrewMasters homebrew club carefully analyzed and scored over 120 entries across 10 beer categories submitted by CIBA members. The judging competition also named its Crown Jewel winner (Best of Show), runner up and honorable mention.

“To have the support, expertise and sheer volume of beer knowledge from the Carolina BrewMasters behind this new judging competition really gives it instant credibility,” said Adam Glover, CIBA events committee co-chair.

Modal A head brewer, Jerod Jones, adds the Crown Jewel award to his trophy collection. His Prohibition ESB in the PALE/BLONDE category took best of show. In 2021, Model A Brewing was called out in U.S. Open’s top 10 favorite beer names for Magic Carpet Rye’d, which also won bronze at the Great American Beer Festival competition in the rye beer category.
