Ska Mexican Logger Wins Bronze Medal at 2016 Great American Beer Festival

Durango, CO (Oct. 11, 2016)Ska Brewing’s Mexican Logger polished off another great summer season with a medal at the Great American Beer Festival (GABF) this past weekend. Mexican Logger clinched the bronze medal in the International Style Pilsner Category at GABF 2016.

Last year, Ska’s Mexican-style lager rendition won a Silver medal in the same category.

“We always knew Mexican Logger was a crowd pleaser, but to have it win a medal two years in a row at the Great American Beer Festival is super exciting for us,” said Kristen Muraro, Marketing Director at Ska.

Originally brewed in 1999 and first enclosed in cans in 2011, the Mexican Logger has been our top seller every summer. To keep up with demand for Mexican Logger this year; Ska Brewing increased production of the beer by twenty percent and anticipates increasing it another twenty percent in 2017.  To answer the most frequently asked question, Mexican Logger will not be available year-round.

Mexican Logger offers a superhuman balance of sweet malt and mild bite. Crafted with fresh grains and Saaz hops, the Mexican Logger is a refreshing brew for warm weather days. At 5% ABV and 20 IBU’s this highly sessionable beer features a light to medium body and a clean, crisp finish.

Mexican Logger has just wrapped up its 17th thirst quenching summer to make way for its winter season sibling: Euphoria Winter Pale Ale. Look for Mexican Logger next spring in all of Ska’s regions of distribution, which are largely Colorado, Southern California, Chicago, Arizona, New Mexico and Texas.
