These Are The Winners Of The 2021 Great American Beer Festival

Food & Drink

The Great American Beer Festival might have not happened in person this year, but the beer festival’s beer competition, the largest commercial beer competition in the world, did go on. This year marked the largest competition to date, with medals awarded in 97 different beer categories covering 175 different beer styles.

“Despite being forced to cancel the festival portion of GABF, our brewing community rallied together to make this year’s GABF competition one for the books—our largest competition judged to date,” said Chris Swersey, competition director, Great American Beer Festival. “Judges continue to be impressed with the quality and innovation of all entries they evaluated. The Brewers Association is proud to honor this year’s deserving winners. We look forward to celebrating in person together next year.”

Judging for the event took place in 34 sessions over 17 days with strict health and safety measures in place. 

All in all, 9680 beers were submitted this year from 2192 different breweries and all 50 states. Those beers were evaluated by 170 judges, and then medals were awarded to winners during the Craft Brewers Conference happening in Denver right now as well as via livestream on The Brewing Network.
