Microbrewery is only three years old


by: FILE PHOTO BY JAIME VALDEZ - Chris Dillon and Alex McGaw, owners of Two Kilts Brewery, recently received news they won a gold medal for their Scottish Ale at the 2014 World Beer Cup in Denver. Sherwood’s Two Kilts Brewery took home a gold medal for its Scottish Ale last week at the prestigious 2014 World Beer Cup held in Denver.

More than 60 countries from around the world competed in the event in 94 categories. Over 4,500 beers were judged by a panel of more than 200 judges and 150 volunteers.

Two Kilts, the microbrewery located since 2011 in the Sherwood Industrial Park off of Tualatin-Sherwood Road, won the top prize over 30 other entries competing in its category.

The Sherwood brewery is run by Chris Dillon and Alex McGaw.

Dillon said he was proud of bringing home the award and was “looking forward to helping elevate our brewery to the next level.”

"We have worked so hard on this beer and everything else we brewed,” he said. “I told Alex if the world had never heard of Two Kilts Brewing Co. in the small town of Sherwood before the World Beer Cup, they certainly have now.  This was and is still a huge moment for us, and it was a feeling that you can describe with one word — incredible.”

Receiving a silver medal in the Scottish Ale category was Maxwell’s Scottish Ale crafted by Rivertowne Brewing Co. of Export, Penn, with the bronze going to Kilt Lifter brewed by Four Peaks Brewing Co. out of Tempe, Ariz.by: COURTESY OF JASON E.
