JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) – Alaska Brewing Co. has distinguished itself again at the Great American Beer Festival held last weekend in Denver. The Juneau company won two medals at the festival, now in its 30th year.
The Juneau Empire says Alaskan Pale Ale took the silver in the golden or blonde ale category, making this the brew’s seventh GABF medal.
Alaskan Smoked Porter took the bronze in the smoke beer category, maintaining its reign as the festival’s highest award-winner with 20 medals since 1988.
Both beers were chosen in their respective categories from the largest field of entries ever in the competition, which had a record number of entries totaling nearly 4,000.
