Kinetic Brewing and several other CCBA members won top honors at the 2014 Double and Triple IPA Festival at the Bistro, in Hayward.
Nationally recognized, professional judges at the fourteenth annual Bistro Double IPA festival awarded Kinetic Brewing of Lancaster the Gold Medal for their limited release Double IPA, “Afterburner.” Kinetic’s beer was in good company with 65 beers entered into competition for the top prize.
The festival’s People’s Choice award went to nearby Kern River Brewing’s “Citra IPA.” The two breweries are known to be close friends leading to speculation of a possible collaboration brew between the local medal winners, although nothing has been officially announced.
The Bistro in Hayward, California, started its Double IPA festival in 2000 and it has become one of the staple events that comprise San Francisco beer week.

This regional meeting is open to CCBA brewery members, non-members, CCBA allied-trade members and CCBA wholesale members
The CCBA is continuing to reach out to all of the craft breweries of California with a series of regional meetings. We will continue the series, that we started last year, and add meetings and locations through 2014. These meetings will be held at various locations throughout the state. We hope to make them close and convenient so that employees of local breweries can attend. The meetings will be informal and will cover ABC trade practice questions, recent and current legislative issues, current trends in the industry and other relevant issues.
