Perennial Artisan Ales snagged a sweet win for its Savant Blanc sour ale at the Great American Beer Festival. The brewery took gold in the American-style sour ale category at the national beer festival, which took place in Denver last weekend, Sept. 24 to 26.

Perennial has previously won two silvers at GABF, but co-owner Phil Wymore said this is its first gold. “The win means a lot,” Wymore said. “We don’t expect to win a medal, so its validation that we’re making a good beer and our hard work is being recognized.”

Perennial brewmaster Cory King said it was an honor to be recognized from 85 other brews entered in this category. “There are so many beers and so many entries. It’s amazing to place let alone win,” King said.

Savant Blanc is Brettanomyces-fermented Belgian blonde ale aged with Chardonel barrels with Chardonel grapes. Wymore said St. Louisans can get a taste of this award-winning brew when the second batch releases in a month or two.
