Me, enjoying Chocolate Oak Aged Yeti
Congratulations to all the winners of this year's Great American Beer Festival (#GABF13)...

I just wanted to send a special shout-out to all the Oregon breweries who were able to get in this year.  Both Colorado and Oregon took home a lot of medals, illustrating that these two states are both at the apex of the craft beer renaissance. 

There were also a lot of great breweries from all over America - some of which (like 3 Floyds, which I've always wanted to try!) don't get distributed to Oregon.  BOO!  Last night, I was lucky enough to enjoy the gold medal winner for the Chocolate Beer category: Great Divide Chocolate Oak Aged Yeti.  Delicious, and certainly no surprise.

You can see the full list of winners.
Or the full awards ceremony on the Brewing Network.

Or you can check out my summary of all our Oregon friends who won.  You guys rock #craftbeer!
