Washington Breweries Rake in 13 Medals at GABF

Congratulations to all the winners! The Great American Beer Festival is one of the most prestigious beer competitions in the world. Medals won at the GABF are highly coveted. You probably don’t need me to tell you that.

Winners of the 2015 Great American Beer Festival awards were announced today. Below I share the winners from Washington. Pictured at right, Brewmaster Don Spencer of Silver City Brewery hoists his shiny, new gold medal.

Our brewers did quite well again this year, bringing home 13 medals in all.

  • Chuckanut Brewery always kills it at the GABF and this year was no different–they brought home two medals.
  • Reuben’s Brews also brought home two more medals to add to the collection.
  • Also of note, Ghostfish Brewing brought home the gold and the bronze in the Gluten Free Beer category. In other words, of the 34 gluten-free beers submitted, the judges thought two of the best were from Ghostfish Brewing.

  1. Congrats to all! On another note is 13 medals a good number for the state ranking 2nd for most breweries (not per capita)?

  2. Why does one gluten-free beer winner (in gold) say 24 entries and the other (bronze) says 34?
    BTW – congrats, Ghostfish
