WA Brewers Bring Home 25+ Medals at NABA Awards

Each year the North American Brewers’ Association sanctions a competition which provides a chance for commercial brewers to have their beers judged alongside the best beers in North America. This year’s awards were just announced and our Washington brewers deserve to be congratulated for another outstanding performance. This year, Washington brought home a total of  25 medals. Fish Brewing Company brought home a 26th medal (gold) for their Spire Mountain Cider.

Both Pike Brewing Company and Silver City Brewing Company won four medals. Flyers Restaurant and Brewery (Oak Harbor) brought home three medals (congrats to Tony Savoy, the brewer at Flyers).  Three of Washington’s newest breweries — Big Al Brewing, Black Raven Brewing, and Chuckanut Brewery — brought home medals in their first attempt. Can I get a “Hell Ya!”
