Bend Breweries Win Big at Great American Beer Festival

Posted By on Mon, Oct 6, 2014 at 1:28 PM

Local breweries took home two gold and three bronze medal at the 2014 Great American Beer Festival. More than 700 breweries, 49,000 people, and 222 beer experts were in attendance. Oregon did well overall, but Bend kicked ass, taking home five medals in all (the same number as that big city on the Columbia River). Big ups to Baker City, who took home four.

"We’re just trying to make rad beers and represent Central Oregon in the craft scene," 10 Barrel Partner Jeremy Cox said in a release. "It was a big day for us. GABF is the Super Bowl of beer awards and our brewers work extremely hard pushing the envelope so I'm glad they could get recognized for their hard work."

Here are the Bend breweries on the winners' podium:

10 Barrel Brewing Co.
Gold – Cucumber Crush (Field Beer)
Bronze – P2P (American-Style Stout)
Bronze – Amber Waves (American-Style Wheat Beer)

Bend Brewing Co.
Gold – Salmonberry Sour (Indigenous/Regional Beer)

Deschutes Brewery
Bronze – Sage Fight IPA (Indigenous/Regional Beer)

Congrats to all the local winners! Which brewery will you be hitting up for happy hour today?
