Sudwerk Brewery in Davis Continues to Produce Award Winning Beers

DAVIS, CA--(Marketwire - October 13, 2009) - The local, family-run, Sudwerk Brewery in Davis, California has been producing world class German-style beer for almost two decades and -- on the eve of their 20th anniversary -- continue to garner national recognition and win prestigious awards for their micro-brews.

Most recently, Sudwerk took home five medals from the California State Fair, including a Gold Medal for its Pilsner. At the 15th annual California Brewer's Festival, its Helles Lager won a Gold Medal and Sudwerk was also awarded the overall "Best of Show." Even the culinary world has praise for Sudwerk -- in the October 2009 edition of Bon Appétit magazine, Sudwerk's Marzen was rated as one of five "favorite brews" for Oktoberfest celebrations -- the only one produced in the U.S.

Since its inception in 1989, Sudwerk owners Ron Broward and Dean Unger, together with long-time brew master Jay Prahl, have produced award-winning lagers at their state-of-the-art brewery located on Second Street in Davis. Sudwerk beers -- including Marzen, Hefeweizen, Pilsner, Lager, Maibock, Dopplebock -- are all-natural (no preservatives) and produced using on old-world German brewing techniques.

Sudwerk is Davis' very own brew pub; the restaurant and brewery are popular venues for UC Davis students, but also cater to locals in the greater Sacramento area and often lure travelers en route to Tahoe from the Bay Area. "We're delighted that our great tasting, quality beers have been so highly acclaimed," said Sudwerk brew master Jay Prahl. "But it's just as important for us to be admired by the local community who has supported us all these years."

Who needs a trip to Munich for an authentic beer haus experience? Think local, stay local, buy local is a popular mantra these days. Swing by the Sudwerk brewery and savor the full flavor of Oktoberfest with a hearty meal and award-winning brews. Or pick up a six pack (or a keg!) of your favorite beer at Sudwerk, put on the polka music and enjoy world-class brew in your own backyard.
