Two medals for SweetWater at this year’s Great American Beer Festival

Oct 1st 2011 in Denver, CO was the awards ceremony for the 30th anniversary GABF. SweetWater has had some great success in the past at this “Super Bowl of Craft Brewing”, winning the Small Brewery of the Year award and 8 individual medals for our brews. This year was our biggest haul since that SBOY award back in 2002 with 2 new medals coming home to add to the brewery wall

According to the Brewers Association (huge thanks to them for all the hard work putting this festival on ever year) over 500 breweries entered almost 4000 beers this year in 83 categories, this was the biggest Great American Beer Festival ever.

check out the full list of all the winners, and cheers to Max Lagers for bringing home some additional hardware to Atlanta, winning the bronze for the IMOS imperial stout

check out our head brewer, Nick Nock, talking with WXIA Atlanta’s Jeff Hullinger about the beers, the fest, and the awards

  2. Thanks so much for the shout out. JR is still wearing his medal and rumor has it he’s sleeping with it under his pillow.

    A huge congrats to the SweetWater team on a job well done on your medals. You make your home state Craft Brewers proud!
