Great American Beer Festival Hands Out The Hardware

Brian Golden - Monday, October 15, 2012

Blue Ribbons turned to gold medals over the weekend, as Pabst Brewing Company not only walked away with the gold medal for "American Style Lager," but was also awarded the coveted "Large Brewing Company of the Year" award.  As a proud distributor of their products in several markets, we would like to congratulate all the people associated with bringing home such success!

Close to 3000 different beers descended upon Denver, Colorado this past weekend for the annual Great American Beer Festival, and medals were handed out in 85 different categories.  Some of the most established breweries in our portfolio found their way onto the podium, and we are very pleased to congratulate them as well.  In no particular order, Sierra Nevada Brewing, Deschutes Brewing, Rogue Brewing, Full Sail Brewing, Samuel Adams, New Belgium Brewing, Bear Republic Brewing and Elysian Brewing all brought home the hardware! (If I missed anyone, I is only because I got dizzy reading through the scrolls of winners...)

If you would like to see the complete list go to  In the mean time, lets start pushing for our favorite Idaho breweries to go out and dominate the competition next year!
