Melges Race Week | US Melges 24 Gold Cup 2010

Trumer Pils Sails Away with Title Sponsorship of San Francisco Melges Race Week US Melges 24 Gold Cup 2010

Berkeley, CA (August 9, 2010) – The Trumer Brauerei Berkeley is pleased to announce Trumer Pils’ Title Sponsorship of the San Francisco Melges Race Week US Melges 24 Gold Cup 2010, hosted by The San Francisco Yacht Club in Belvedere, August 20th-22nd. This event is one of three nationally ranked Melges 24 events, as well as a warm-up regatta for the international Melges 32 fleet before their World Championship in San Francisco. The event includes three days of intense racing, a dock party each evening, and an awards ceremony on Sunday.

Trumer Pils is no stranger to competition, having won multiple awards for Best German Style Pilsner since opening in 2004. Brewing Trumer Pils can be compared to racing a high performance sailboat: both take a highly specialized team and the patience to perfect an art based on science and physics. Trumer Pils will be delivered by flagship to each sailing crew as they finish for their ride back to the après racing party -- where Trumer Pils will flow liberally.

About Trumer Brauerei Berkeley: Opened in 2004, the Trumer Brauerei Berkeley is the sister brewery to the 400-year old Trumer Brauerei Salzburg. The two breweries are committed to brewing the highest quality Pilsner on both continents. Trumer Pils results from a unique partnership of two family owned companies: Privatbrauerei Josef Sigl and The Gambrinus Company.
