2012 Great American Beer Fest Winners!

Sunday, October 14, 2012

One of my favorite posts of the year is every October.  I get to announce to all 6 of us the winners from the Great American Beer Fest in Boulder, CO.  Pro- and home-brewers from all over the country enter their best for a chance at winning one of the most prestigious medals in all of brewing.

The full press release is here, but since we're all really only interested in how brewers from Michigan did, here's the goods:

  • Hazelnut Coffee Cream Stout, Redwood Brewing Co., Flint, MI:  SILVER
  • Kuhnhenn Braggot (honey/fruit beer), Kuhnhenn Brewing Co., Warren, MI: BRONZE
Yeah, that's it.  Just 2 medals this year.  Well, we have 111 breweries in our lovely state and I think maybe we need to have some of our new breweries focus on quality over quantity.  Plus, Founders, New Holland, Dragonmeade, Short's and Bell's have won just about every award you can possibly win.

Check out the other winners here!

I'd also like to point out that occasional ATK-Alum Sopor, who now brews for legendary Rogue brewery in Newport, OR, has this to report:

  • GOLD: Hazelnut Brown Nectar, Rogue Brewery, Newport, OR
Congrats to Gold-Medalist Rogue Brewery and our very own "Sopor!"

We expect a shipment of this brew as soon as possible, Colin.

You had a typo. It' not 6 readers, but 1.6 million daily readers.

112 breweries in Michigan. How can we be expected to visit all of them?

I suggest a regional approach. Start with the UP, work our way down.
