Press Release: Momo's Pizza Pub

Momo’s Brewery in Tallahassee was recently awarded two Best of Show prizes at the Best Florida Beer Championships. The statewide professional brewing industry competition is designed to recognize excellence in brewing among Florida's craft brewers.

Momo's was awarded two Gold Medals – one for its Moose and Squirrel Nut Brown Ale and one for its Big Papa Porter. The two gold medal winning beers went on to win the Best of Show prize in the Small Batch Category as well as the 1st runner up in the same category respectively. Over 240 commercial brewery entries were evaluated during the competition.

“The strength of the competition is its focus on Florida's growing brewing culture and the quality of beers being brewed across the state”, said Momo's Head Brewer John Larsen. “ I'm honored to win these awards. It shows that Momo's beers are as good as any in the state and that our emphasis on making solid, well-crafted beers is appreciated by both the judges of the competition and by our customers.”

Both Moose and Squirrel and Big Papa Porter have been customer favorites at the pub. Larsen expects the beers to be available for a limited release this weekend and again later in the year. Awards were presented on March 2 and March 3 in Tampa Florida.
