Double Branch Artisanal Ales Strikes Gold at 2020 U.S. Open Beer Championship

Double Branch Artisanal Ales (Wesley Chapel, Florida) was recently notified that its Purple Floors & Dinosaurs Double IPA earned a gold medal at the 2020 U.S. Open Beer Championship.

After establishing itself just five months ago as Wesley Chapel’s first craft brewery, Double Branch Artisanal Ales has earned another distinction by winning a gold medal in the New England/Juicy DIPA category at this year’s U.S. Open Beer Championship for its Purple Floors & Dinosaurs. Named after the brewery’s quirky purple floors and now extinct green walls (a name that also took home second place in the contest’s Top 10 Favorite Beer Names), Purple Floors & Dinosaurs is a Hazy/Juicy Double India Pale Ale triple dry-hopped with Idaho 7, Simcoe and El Dorado Hops. Coming in at a sneaky 9% ABV, Purple Floors & Dinosaurs boasts a pronounced pineapple aroma alongside a flavor profile packed with dank, tropical and citrus notes.

If you would like to get yourself a taste of the award-winning Purple Floors & Dinosaurs, you can do so by visiting Double Branch Artisanal Ales (5956 Wesley Grove Blvd | Wesley Chapel, Florida). This Limited Release is available exclusively at the brewery in 4-packs of 16 oz. cans and on draft as long supplies last. Prost!
