CHATTANOOGA, TN (WRCB) - Chattanooga's very own McHale's Brewhouse, a 2-barrel brewpub claimed a  gold medal at the 2014 Great American Beer Festival (GABF) competition. 

Presented by the Brewers Association, GABF is the largest national beer competition that recognizes the most outstanding beers produced in the United States. 

“Our beer is brewed with love, for the love of beer.” said Adam Hale, BrewMaster at McHale's Brewhouse.

McHale's Brewhouse was recognized in the Scottish-Style Ale beer-style category for its Scottish Pride, this traditional Scottish “80 schilling” ale is complex but simple. The malts produced in Scotland have a character all 

their own, and this beer is a tribute to that malt, “Golden Promise”. 

“Once again the Great American Beer Festival brings the best of the best together in one place. At a time when American brewers offer so much variety, it's a true honor to be recognized as one of the finest. Our greatest gratitude to the winners and all entrants whose innovative and outstanding beers help make this such an esteemed competition,” said Chris Swersey, competition manager. 

The 2014 GABF competition winners were selected by an international panel of 222 expert judges from the record number of 5,507 entries, plus 89 Pro-Am entries, received from 1,309 U.S. breweries.
