[STAFFORD, VIRGINIA] – On Monday, August 8th, Barley Naked Brewing Company took home three medals from the Virginia Craft Beer Cup, which was held at Hardywood Park Craft Brewery’s West Creek Location. Barley Naked won the Silver medal for their Rockhill Irish Red in the Irish Red Category, the Silver for their For Fox Sake Golden Lager in the Cream and Blonde Category, and the Bronze for the newest addition to their menu, the Drop your Schwarz Schwarzbier in the Dark European Lager Category.

Barley Naked Brewing Company founder, Barry Boyd, adds “I am extremely proud of the hard work and dedication of the brewing team at Barley Naked. Brady and Bri consistently do an amazing job, always producing quality beers with care and attention to detail.  The VA Craft Beer Cup showcases that the Virginia Craft Beer scene is producing some of the best and upcoming craft beer brewers in the nation.  I am very proud of their continuing accomplishments.”
