Two dark horse candidates medaled at this year’s Great American Beer Festival. Milwaukee’s Best (some know it as The Beast) took gold in the American Style Cream Ale or Lager category. It beat out 23 other entries (mostly from craft breweries) on its way to the podium. Olde English 800 took silver in the International Style Pilsener category. It bested 11 other entrants.
Of course, the Big Three (Miller, Bud, Coors) took most of the American Style medals, but the moral of the story is that fine beverage can be found in surprising packages. So go ahead folks, drop two bones on a quart of one of these tasties and toast their victory!
