COOP Native Amber gets some love

by Nick Trougakos Published: December 21, 2011

COOP Native Amber — the winner of the 2011 Beer Championship Series — was mentioned in an online article 

recently at Draftmag.com. You can find the article at this link.

In related news, I recently wanted to have some Native Amber at Redpin (was there for a company Christmas party) but they were out that night. Looking to keep it local, I went with COOP Gran Sport Porter, and I was pleasantly surprised.

Not because I didn’t think GSP would be any good — I’ve always been a fan. It’s just that it had been many, many months since I’d had GSP (maybe even years?), and I’d forgotten what a solid porter it is.

But it is indeed solid, and ended up being my beer of choice that night. Which was a much better choice then the PBR someone else (not naming any names, *cough* Chris *cough*) at the party kept ordering.
