Toltec head brewer Kaylynn McKnight won her third career medal at GABF, this time for her delicious Shaman Stout.
After taking it easy for a couple of days, Toltec Brewing head brewer Kaylynn McKnight was back hard at work on Tuesday. Hey, she earned the break after winning her third Great American Beer Festival medal as a brewer, and first for her current brewery, over the weekend.
“I’m super stoked, (as) last year when GABF happened we had been open for five months,” Kaylynn said. “We submitted the beers after three months of being open, so we had a lot of … I don’t want to say kinks, because our results came back pretty awesome. Now we’ve been open a little over a year. I’m very stoked to be with such a young company, even though I’m aware I’ve been around a little while, but it’s cool to bring home hardware for a newer business and hopefully it will inspire people to come try our stout.”
