Independence Brewing, fresh off their national Good Food Award last Friday in San Francisco, is offering area Austinites a chance to celebrate with them and the award winning Convict Hill Oatmeal Stout at several locations this weekend.

On Friday night, January 20, Gingerman Pub will host Independence and have Convict Hill on tap along with a variety of cheese pairings from 6-8 p.m.

On Saturday, January 21, the Whole Foods on Lamar will host a free tasting from 1-3 p.m. and the Wheatsville Coop will host a free tasting from Noon-3 p.m.

The Good Food Awards are a celebration of foods that are "tasty, authentic and responsibly produced" and an opportunity to recognize the farmers and producers who provide the ingredients. Winners are chosen in eight categories: beer, charcuterie, cheese, chocolate, coffee, pickles, preserves and spirits.

Independence was selected from over 900 brewery entrants and 19 finalists and represents the South region as the only winner in the beer category.

Independence co-founder Rob Cartwright said, "It's nice to see Texas being recognized for good craft beer on the same level as some of the great states that led the way in the craft beer revolution like California, Oregon and Colorado."

Rob's wife and brewery co-founder Amy Cartwright who attended the awards ceremony continued, “It was an honor to be on stage with such well-respected craft brewers, and we feel that the 2012 Good Food Awards brings to light our efforts to be a responsible company that produced one of the best beers in America.”
