Springfield’s own White Lion Brewing Co. has received national recognition as an Emerging Beverage Company to Keep an Eye On. Brewbound, a leading multi-media industry trade publication, recently announced its 2022 Award Winners and class of Rising Stars during the trade publication’s Brewbound Live business conference in Santa Monica, California.
The Brewbound Awards recognize large and small beverage-alcohol companies that thrived over the last year, while also celebrating notable industry figures, change agents, up-and-coming entrepreneurs and philanthropic initiatives. White Lion Brewing Company joins seven other emerging beverage companies to keep an eye on.
“The challenges facing the beer category in 2022 were unrelenting, but Brewbound’s Award Winners and class of Rising Stars were standouts for not just business performance but the way they helped their teams, their communities and the overall industry,” said Brewbound editor Justin Kendall. “We are thrilled to honor this year’s Award Winners and Rising Stars.”
“There is a huge playing field in the beverage space and it continues to evolve. We work hard to adjust to those changes. This recognition is attributed to community support and an incredible team that takes pride in what we do day in and day out. To be recognized as a Rising Star pushes us to work harder and be a voice within the craft beer community. We look forward to what the future holds,” said founder and President Ray Berry.
Mayor Domenic J. Sarno stated, “Congratulations to Ray Berry and his dedicated team at White Lion! Yet another well-deserved award and recognition. White Lion has been roaring ever since they opened and it is great to see Ray and his team getting the national recognition they truly deserve. Congratulations Ray and I’ll take the White Lion Cream Ale to go!”
