Lost Forty Brewing
took home a silver medal at the 2017 Great American Beer Festival
, the largest commercial beer competition in the world. It drew notice for its Logger Rita Vienna Lager, which the brewery describes as a “refreshing amber colored lager with smooth malty flavors, citrus fruit aromas, and a crisp finish.” It’s the first medal for an Arkansas brewery since 2008, when Vino’s earned gold for its imperial red ale. Diamond Bear Brewery earned gold in 2007 for its pale ale. Lost Forty was among 2,217 breweries that entered this year’s competition. The winners were announced Oct. 7.
