(Courtesy Brewers Association}

Thanks to COVID-19 this year’s GABF beer competition went virtual this year. But that doesn’t make them any less important. And we’ve all the big winners for you.

This year the Brewers Association (BA) awarded 272 medals to 240 breweries across the country during this weekend’s 2020 Great American Beer Festival competition awards ceremony.

The best beers in 91 beer categories covering 170 different beer styles (including all subcategories) were awarded gold, silver, and bronze medals during a virtual ceremony

A win at the Great American Beer Festival competition is still a BIG deal. Taking a gold, silver or bronze medal in any one of this year’s beer categories can put a new brewery on the map and reaffirm the brewing skills of industry leaders that sometimes get overlooked.

And here (drum roll please) is a list of this year’s winners…
