2010 Great American Beer Festival Winners List

For those like us who couldn't attend the 2010 Great American Beer Festival, here is the list of winners. A special shout out goes to two Nelson County breweries we plan on touring for MyJoogTV during The Festy - held October 9th-10th. Blue Mountain Brewery (Afton, VA) was awarded a Gold in the American-Style Wheat Beer category for their Sandy Bottom and a Bronze in the German-Style Kölsch category for their Kölsch151.

Neighboring Devils Backbone Brewing Co. (Roseland, VA) was awarded a Gold in the Coffee Flavored Beer category for their Baltic Coffee; another Gold in the American-Style or International-Style Pilsener for their Gold Leaf Lager; a Bronze in the English-Style Mild Ale category for their Ale of Fergus; and a second Bronze in the South German-Style Hefeweizen for their Wintergreen Weiss. Now that's a showing. Can't wait to try these beers next month.
