East Brother Beer Co. just won another big award for its beer.

At the California Craft Brewers Cup in Long Beach, part of the California Craft Brewers Association’s annual conference, the Richmond-based brewery’s Bo Pils took the Gold Medal in the Bohemian-style Pilsner category.

The recognition has Rob Lightner, co-founder of East Brother Beer Co., “super-excited.”

“Feels good to get some recognition for all the hard work everyone puts in day to day,” Lightner said.
