CSB Supplier Medal Winners at the Great American Beer Festival 2019

Last week in Denver, Colorado, about 60,000 people came together to sample some of the nation’s highest quality beer at the Great American Beer Festival. Additionally, the festival invited industry professionals from around the world to judge the beers entered in the competition. The judges blind taste beers in each style category and award a bronze, silver, or gold to the beer that exhibits the highest brewing quality.

The contest includes 107 different beer-style categories. Of these, CSB suppliers took home 18 awards for various brew styles. Check out which of our suppliers received honors below.
