Yeah, yeah, 70% of all entrants win at least one prize. Whatever. Congrats to the folks below who won awards at the most prestigious beerfest in the country.
Capital Brewery Co., Capital Bavarian Lager, Bronze, Dortmunder or German-Style Oktoberfest
New Glarus Brewing Co, Totally Naked, Bronze, American-Style Lager or Premium Lager
New Glarus Brewing Co, Raspberry Tart, Bronze, Fruit Beer or Field Beer
Rock Bottom Brewery - Milwaukee, Pilsner, Gold, German-Style Pilsener
Titletown Brewing Co., Dark Helmet, Bronze, German Style Schwarzbier
Interesting to note:
- Only five winners this year. It's hard to tell how many actually participated, but unless you have immediate aspirations to distribute outside of Wisconsin, is there really a need to even send beer? Yeah, if you win you get to advertise it, but how much does "Bronze at GABF" really buy you and is it worth the time and money?
- All of the awards were in German beer categories (except for Raspberry Tart).
