Posted on 06 October 2015 by Admin - Mike Cortez

We know that we are late to the game but it took time getting these videos edited but better late than never is how we like to see it. As you may know the 2015 Great American Beer Festival took place in Denver Sept. 24-26 and Texas proudly brought home 15 medals. We got to meet a lot of great people, made some new friends and tried a lot of amazing beers. At the end of the day we had one mission and that was to report on the Texas breweries present at the festival. Below are the 15 medals brought home, congratulations to all of the breweries that competed in this year’s festival and a big hats off to all the medal winners.
