A Brooklyn brewery has once again been chosen as the best craft beer in New York state.

Threes Brewing won the grand prize, the Governor’s Excelsior Cup, at the state’s annual Craft Beer Competition for the second year in a row with its Belgian farmhouse-style “Passing Time” ale, according to amNewYork. The competition, which is only in its second year, took place in July in Rochester at the Department of Agriculture and Markets’ Great New York State Fair.

“Passing Time” was the best of 642 entries from 120 breweries representing 40 different styles of beer. Last year, Threes Brewing’s European-style pilsner “Vliet” beat out 700 other beers to win the competition.

The company, which started in December 2014, has created more than 60 brews with unusual names like “Gender Neutral” and “I Hate Myself.”

“There’s a real renaissance going on in New York state for craft breweries,” Joshua Stylman, co-founder and CEO of Threes Brewing, told amNewYork. Stylman owns two bars in Gowanus and Greenpoint, which serve his brews.
