Awards

Awards Page 

The following is a semi-comprehensive list of awards from the two most competitive Beer Competitions worldwide. The World Beer Cup and the Great American Beer Festival are widely acknowledged as the two most highly regarded, professionally judged, international and national (respectively) beer competitions in the world. The World Beer Cup is semi-annual and the Great American Beer Festival is annual.

Note that both the G.A.B.F. and W.B.C. are category driven competitions, meaning that beers are judged by how well they represent categories, or “Styles” of beer. As many of our beers don’t fit easily into one category, many (actually most) of our beers have never been entered in competition. Awards are great (and fun to receive), but they’re just one measuring stick for excellence. Our taste buds are the #1 measuring stick!

Regarding State and Regional Beer Competitions: Although we don’t often compete in State or Regional beer competitions, we have won dozens of ribbons at the California State Fair (and other competitions) in the past. A fair number of these ribbons and awards are on display throughout the pub.
