Medal Winners for You!

We got the opportunity to try a lot of great beers at the 2010 Great American Beer Festival. I wanted to share some info on some of those great beers with you, but decided it wouldn't be very productive to tell you about stuff that for the most part may be very difficult for most people living in the area to obtain.

So we came up with the next best thing, a list of some of the medal winning beer that you can buy in the state of Utah. If you haven't had any of these, I'd recommend giving them a shot. And if you have? Revisit them when you have the chance.

As always here's a link to the complete list.

Cheers!

Thanks for compiling this list Mikey.

I've been as guilty as any about mocking the yellow fizzy beers. That said I can't see how the could be excluded from a fair competition. Personally I don't like them, but I'm also not a huge fan of the styles in which they compete. I've definitely been trying to widen my preferences though. I guess you can't just drink Saisons can you?
