Winning the Great American Beer Festival

Who took home the big wins from the Great American Beer Festival?

Winning the Great American Beer Festival As we've been voting for the winners of the People's Voice Wine Awards and our favorite pairings in the People's Voice Awards: Epicurean Edition, the beer world held a big party out in Denver, Colo., judged the best beers of the year and announced them, all in the same weekend. Sound like fun? It was!

It happens every year around this time. Unfortunately, I did not have the opportunity to go to the Great American Beer Festival this year but I've been in the past and based on what I've heard from friends and colleagues, it was as good as ever. While beer lovers, connoisseurs, brewers and writers came together to enjoy samples of beer from across the country, a select group of professionals sat down to elect the very best of the bunch.

The judges perform a series of blind tastings to choose a gold, silver and bronze winner in 84 different categories. I took a closer look at five of those 84 gold medal winners.

    I can attest that Troegs Brewing Co. in Hershey, PA has exceptional tasting beer. I tried there "Mad Elf", potent but exceptional.
