Charleston upstart Revelry Brewing cleaned up at the US Open Beer Championships last week, taking home four medals as well as being ranked the third best overall in the annual competition.
The yearly championship judges thousands of beers from across the US and the world on a variety of categories. This year, more than 4,000 beers covering 90 different styles. Revelry was the only brewery from the Palmetto State to win any awards in this year’s competition.
The Charleston brewery took the No. 3 spot overall, falling just behind Ballast Point and Lakewood Brewing, respectively, but won the Judges Award for Most Creative Name (Funkmaster Brett and the Furious Hops).
In the style categories, Revelry won gold for English Summer Ale (Lean or Fat?) and Strong Scottish Ale (Oh My Darlyn!); silver for American Cream Ale (Gullah Cream Ale); and bronze Munchner Helles, Light (Melle’s Helles).

Update 7/7 – The results previously had Revelry winning five medals, with Oh My Darlyn! taking bronze in the Scottish Ale. The updated results include only four medals for the brewery, which don’t include anything for the Scottish Ale style.
