But Aren't We All Winners, Really?

Friday, October 17, 2008

In the case of the results of the Great American Beer Festival (GABF) brew competition held last weekend in Colorado, yes we are. We all win.

More than 127 judges labored for three days to evaluate 2,902 beers and pick the best entries and top breweries for this year's Great American Beer Festival. A total of 222 medals were awarded in 75 beer style categories and top breweries and brewers were designated based on the total number of medals won.
Let's get to the "top 5 winners": the breweries.

Large Brewing Company and Large Brewing Company Brewer of the Year:
Anheuser-Busch, Inc.

Mid-Size Brewing Company and Mid-Size Brewing Company Brewer of the Year:
Pyramid Breweries Inc.

Small Brewing Company and Small Brewing Company Brewer of the Year:
AleSmith Brewing Co.

Large Brewpub and Large Brewpub Brewer of the Year:
Rock Bottom Brewing

Small Brewpub and Small Brewpub Brewer of the Year:
Redwood Brewing Co....from Flint, Michigan! And Flint's economy is still so bad, they don't have a web site.

From there, go see this link for all of the GABF winners in each category of beer.

Other Michigan winners include Bastone Brewery (Royal Oak), Detroit Beer Company (Detroit, MI) and Jolly Pumpkin Artisan Ales (Dexter, MI).
