The 2016 Great American Beer Festival (GABF) is in the books, and Washington was well-represented on the winner’s stage. Washington breweries took home a total of 14 medals, including 7 gold medals. Georgetown Brewing made the biggest splash, taking home a gold medal in the category with the most entrants, American-Style IPA with 312 entries, as well as a gold medal in another very competitive category, Coffee Beer with 168 entries.

Also impressive, Washington breweries took both gold and silver medals in the German-style Sour Ale category, which had 141 entries. Reuben’s Brews took the gold, while Kulshan Brewing took the silver.

Competition is fierce for medals at GABF. Brewers work hard on their craft, and taking home one of these medals is a rewarding result of their long hours and dedication.

Cheers to all of the Washington breweries that took home hardware from this year’s competition, and I hope to see even more breweries submit beers and find success at the 2017 competition.
