It has been a good week for Figueroa Mountain Brewing Co.

The three-year-old brewery brought home two medals from the 2014 World Beer Cup and five from the 2014 New York International Beer Competition.

Last Friday, Jaime Dietenhofer, CEO of Figueroa Mountain Brewing Co., accepted two medals at the World Beer Cup awards ceremony, a terrific ending to a week-long Craft Beer Conference in Denver, Colo.

Along with Brewmaster AJ Stoll, brewer Luke Barrett and cellarman Juan Zepeda, Dietenhofer celebrated the awards: a Silver medal for Davy Brown Ale and a Bronze for their Danish Red Lager.

“We are so proud of our production team,” the overjoyed Dietenhofer said. “Bringing home multiple medals among thousands of entries from established breweries is further acknowledgement of all of their hard work and talent.”

Dietenhofer is referring to the near-5,000 beer entries in the World Beer Cup from 62 countries. Figueroa Mountain Brewing Co. and Firestone Brewery were the only two breweries from California’s Central Coast to bring home medals.

During the same weekend, the Figueroa Mountain Brewing Co. team found out they had won five medals at the New York International Beer Competition held Feb. 9 in New York City. The competition awarded Figueroa Mountain Brewing Co. three silver medals for its Hurricane Deck Double IPA, Hoppy Poppy IPA and Wrangler Wheat. They were also awarded two bronze medals for Davy Brown Ale and Stagecoach Stout.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.
