Pistol Pete’s 1888 garners national awards

Pistol Pete’s 1888 Ale, which launched in 2017 by Bosque Brewing Co. and NMSU, has received two national awards due to its great flavor and style. 

Bosque Brewing Co., a New Mexico company owned by NMSU alumni, received a bronze medal at the 2018 Great American Beer Festival competition. Presented by the Brewers Association, GABF is the largest commercial beer competition in the world and recognizes the most outstanding beers produced in the United States. 

Pistol Pete's 1888 Ale was recognized in the Golden or Blonde Ale beer-style category. The 2018 GABF competition winners were selected by an international panel of 293 expert judges from 8,496 entries.

Randle Dominguez, who works for NMSU’s Athletics Department, won gold at the 2018 MarCom Awards, an international creative competition, for her work designing the can and packaging for Pistol Pete’s 1888 Ale.
