FLORIDA BREWERIES EARN MEDALS AT 2018 GREAT AMERICAN BEER FESTIVAL


Denver CO, September 22, 2018: The first day of Fall saw six Florida breweries notch medals at the 32nd edition of the Great American Beer Festival, held September 20-22 in Denver. With 2,404 breweries and 8,496 entries from around the world in this year's competition, the pre-eminent annual beer competition awarded medals in 102 beer categories, covering 167 beer styles.  This year's category with the highest number of entries was the Juicy or Hazy IPA, with 391 entries. While the American-Style IPA category historically notches the highest number of entries, it was second this year (311), just behind the haze-craze IPAs (391).  Three breweries: 10 Barrel Brewing (Bend OR), Alesong Brewing and Blending (Eugene OR), and  Lewis & Clark Brewing (Helena MT) tied for the most number of medals at three each. 

According to the Brewers Association, over 800 breweries participated in the 2018 GABF at the Colorado Convention Center, which spanned over 584,000 square feet. Over 4,000 beers were served to more than 62,000 attendees, and the mega-event was staffed with over 4,000 volunteers. 

Six Florida breweries brought home the hardware of Gold, Silver or Bronze medals. Congratulations to the following:

Escape Brewing, Trinity: Silver: Goofy Footed, American Style Wheat Beer
Walking Tree Brewery, Vero Beach: Silver: Barnacled Manatee, Barleywine Style Ale
