The awards ceremony was held at the Bellco Theatre in Denver during the 40th anniversary Great American Beer Festival and was the 36th edition of the competition.

The judges awarded 300 total medals to 268 different breweries, including 18 first-time winners.

“Each year the Great American Beer Festival showcases the best that American brewers have to offer,” said Chris Williams, competition director, Great American Beer Festival. “With 9,904 entries, this year’s competition was the most competitive to date. Congratulations to all the winners who truly demonstrated why the U.S. is the best brewing nation in the world.”
