From Oregon Brewers Guild:
PORTLAND, Ore. (October 15, 2012) – Oregon breweries claimed a total of 23 medals at the 2012 Great American Beer Festival (GABF) held October 11 – 13 in Denver, Colorado. Oregon Breweries brought home five gold medals, eleven silver medals and seven bronzes.
The city of Portland led the way with eight medals, followed by Bend with five medals, Baker City with four medals, Hood River with three medals, Pacific City with two medals and Newport with one medal.
Coming out of a competition with so many medals might make you wonder if everyone got one.
They didn’t. Medals came to beers out of a pool of more than 2700.
What does that mean to Portland beer fans? I think you know.
