Fullsteam Brewery, Escazu Chocolates, Boxcarr Cheese, Fiddlehead Farm Among N.C. Winners of 2018 Good Food Awards

Posted by on Sat, Jan 20, 2018 at 3:44 PM

Our local food products continue to gain national acclaim, to the delight of tastebuds everywhere. A few Triangle favorites were honored with Good Food Awards this weekend in San Francisco.

Fullsteam Brewery, which won in 2013 and 2016, won again this year for three distinct beers from its Farm's Edge series. Each beer offers a direct connection to local ingredients.  As described by the brewery, they are:
Alexis, a blackberry Brett saison brewed in collaboration with Hillsborough, N.C.-based Seal The Seasons, using local grain, Fullsteam’s house mixed culture, and blackberries from Lineberger's Maple Springs Farm in Dallas, N.C.

Brumley Forest, a Baltic Porter brewed in collaboration with Triangle Land Conservancy, featuring foraged black walnuts and hickory nuts collected on TLC’s new protected and public land, Brumley Forest.

Dinnsen’s Orchard, named in honor of Wynn Dinnsen, North Carolina's leading proponent of the native paw paw and the source for nearly all the paw paw fruit in this sweet, tropical Belgian-style Tripel.
Fullsteam  is the only North Carolina Brewery to ever win a Good Food Award. “What an incredible honor to pass both the judges’ blind tasting and the social and environmental vetting process,” Sean Lilly Wilson, Fullsteam’s Chief Executive Optimist, says in a press release. “It validates our passion for plow to pint beer.”

Boxcarr Handmade Cheese from Hillsborough won awards for two of its cheeses: Campo, a versatile, cold-smoked cow's milk cheese (which we love: read about it here) and Winsome, a bright cow-and-goat-milk hybrid dipped in beeswax. Raleigh's Escazu Artisan Chocolates earned an award for its Earl Grey Dark Chocolate Ganache, while Chapel Hill's Chocolatay Confections won for its Sunflower Crunch Cup. And Fiddlehead Farm in Pittsboro won for its Roasted Strawberry Preserves.

Eight Triangle-area producers made the list of finalists in November. The annual Good Food Awards, in its eighth year, recognize American food artisans who produce delicious food responsibly, with respect to the farmers who provide their ingredients.
