Thirsty Dog Brewing Co.'s Barrel Aged Siberian Night took home the People's Choice award last weekend at the Brewer's Brawl sponsored by Fat Head's Brewery and Saloon in North Olmsted. The beer is a Russian imperial stout aged in bourbon barrels and has about 11 percent alcohol. The Fat Head's event features high-powered beers. The winner receives a giant gold boxing glove. "It's nice to get the People's Choice award," said John Najeway, co-owner of Thirsty Dog. "Especially because (Fat Head's brewer) Matt Cole puts on a great event and he loves big beers ... That means more than a lot of rankings because it's from the people." He noted that the beer is available on draft at the brewery. Fat Head's co-owner Paul Siperke said a total of 336 people attended both tasting sessions. The Cleveland Food and Brews blog has a rundown of the event, complete with photos.
