Last year Washington brewers brought home 17 medals from the Great American Beer Festival, the nation’s most prestigious and largest beer competition (see last year’s post). That was Washington’s single largest medal-haul in the 32-year history of the event. Pictured above: The crew from Cloudburst Brewing accepts a medal on the main stage at GABF.
Once again, Washington brewers did an impressive job. Here is the list of Washington’s winners at the 2019 GABF. (Updating on the fly, as they’re announced, so stay tuned.) We will get the final, final total and results up soon.
Interestingly, three Washington breweries won two medals each: Odin Brewing, Cloudburst Brewing, and Silver City Brewing. As with all competitions like this, we know what we know. We do not know which breweries did not even enter the competition. Your favorite brewery may have abstained.
