Utah Brewers bring home 5 medals from national beer fest

Published: 10/06/2014
By Kathy Stephenson, The Salt Lake Tribune -- Utah beer brewers brought home five medals and a presentation award during the Great American Beer Festival (GABF) held in Colorado this past weekend.

Earning Utah’s only gold was the Utah Brewers Cooperative for Squatters Hell’s Keep, an entry in the Belgian-style strong specialty ale category.

Silver medals were awarded to Redrock Brewing’s Paardeblom in the experimental beer category and Uinta Brewing’s Cutthroat in the ordinary or special bitter category.

Sponsored by the national Brewers Association, the GABF is the largest beer competition in the world. This year, 268 medals were awarded in 90 beer categories and 145 different beer styles. Winners were chosen from 5,507 entries, 16 percent more than in 2013. And more than 1,300 breweries, hailing from all 50 states and Washington, D.C. participated.
