Genesee's Dark Chocolate Scotch Ale takes silver at GABF.

Byline: Gino Fanelli

The Genesee Pilot Brewery's Dark Chocolate Scotch Ale took the silver medal in the chocolate beer category at the Great American Beer Festival (GABF), following up on a gold medal win in The World Beer Cup earlier this year.

The Dark Chocolate Scotch Ale was a decadent winter release put out last year which added a hefty dose of Hedonist dark chocolate to the Pilot Brewery's beloved Scotch Ale. The brew lost out to Boynton Beach, Florida's Copperpoint Brewing Company with their Coco for Coxness and was followed up by Kilowatt Brewing of San Diego's Chocolate Macadamia Nut stout.

Genesee was the only brewery in Rochester recognized at the GABF, and was the only brewery in New York to take home a silver. Captain Lawrence of Elmsford took a bronze in the American Fruited-sour category with their Flaming Fury and the Bronx's Gun Hill took a bronze in the Rye Beer category with their Rise Up Rye.

Penfield's K2 Brothers exhibited four beers at the GABF: Jalapeno Cream Ale, Double-dry Hopped Double IPA, Barrel-Aged Imperial Oatmeal Stout and Vanilla Porter.
