The RAM is gearing up for summer and tapping their 2016 North American Beer Awards Gold Medal Winner, Barefoot Wit Belgian White Ale. Tapping at all RAM locations today, the Barefoot Wit is a seasonal guest favorite which pairs perfectly with warm summer days at The RAM.
Dave Leonard, Director of Brewing said, “The NABA gold medal accolades for our Barefoot Wit could not have come at a better time! This brew is a personal favorite and one of our most popular seasonal releases. Our brewers have crafted the ideal Wit; hazy white hued with fruity orange notes, coriander spice and Belgian yeast character a light refreshing finish. I had high hopes when I sampled this batch as it was bottled and sent to the NABA competition, the balance of flavors seems perfect. Perfect enough to earn a gold medal!”

Lakewood, WA – The RAM Restaurant Group was honored for the 11th consecutive year by the North American Brewers’ Association at the 20th Annual North American Beer Awards, in conjunction with Idaho Beer Week, on June 3rd in Idaho Falls, Idaho. The Boise RAM was awarded four medals, including one silver and three bronze. The company also won three additional medals with brews from Fort Collins, CO and Tacoma, WA, including a Gold for the seasonal Barefoot Wit which taps at all RAM locations today. “We are excited to celebrate our 7 medals at this year’s North American Beer Awards! Huge accolades go to our team of talented and passionate brewers,” stated Director of Brewery Operations, Dave Leonard who was elated with the haul.
