Cameron’s Oak-Aged Barrels to Victory at the 2011 Canadian Brewing Awards

Toronto, ON

Cameron’s Brewing Company was a big winner at the 2011 Canadian Brewing
Awards held this past Friday, September 9th in Toronto, honouring the best brews in 31 different categories from 20 competitors across the country.

Cameron’s victory with a Silver Medal for their first ever Oak-Aged Release in the Wood and Barrel-Aged Beer category add to their gold and bronze in 2010 at the same award ceremony, and to their over 45 total awards over the 14 years they’ve been brewing their outstanding allnatural Ales & Lagers.

For Bill Coleman, president and co-owner of Cameron’s Brewing Company, Friday’s victory dovetails perfectly alongside the numerous other awards and accolades the brewery had garnered since he began leading nearly one year ago, and comes as no surprise. “Our Oak-Aged was a phenomenal success, selling out its first run completely in less than a week. This award stands as a testament to building on the innovation that we’ve started at Cameron’s.”

“We’re experiencing a phenomenal year”, continued Coleman. “From victorious bids to be the newest microbrewery of choice at both Flamboro and Georgian Downs, a gold and silver at the Ontario Brewing Awards earlier this year and sales results outpacing the already great growth of the craft brewery market, I couldn’t be happier about this latest accolade.”

The Canadian Brewing Awards are Canada’s only national competition that invites breweries of all sizes from across the country to compete in a blind tasting to see who brews the best beer.

A Canadian Brewing Award medal is a widely recognized symbol of brewing excellence in
Canada. A panel of approximately 20 Certified Beer Judges consider five criteria: aroma, appearance, flavour, mouth-feel, and overall impression.

Cameron’s Brewing Company is a true craft brewery, passionately brewing all
natural ales and lagers since 1997 in Oakville, Ontario, Canada. Cameron’s is
currently available at The Beer Store, select LCBO locations and on tap at
numerous bars and restaurants such as Earl’s, C’est What, Stout Irish Pub, Langdon Hall, the Royal Canadian Yacht Club and more. For more information about Cameron’s and its availability, please visit
