Local winners at the Great American Beer Festival — Sunriver Brewing Company

Founded in 1982, the GABF awards gold, silver, and bronze medals to US breweries in 98 different categories, ranging from traditional beer styles like American-Style Wheat Beer and Coffee Stout or Porter to more unusual categories like Smoke Beer and Munich-Style Dunkel or European-Style Dark Lager. The top three winners in the competition's 98 beer-style categories were announced October 7 at the Great American Beer Festival awards ceremony.

Other notable winners include Sly Fox Brewing, which won gold in the Belgian and French-style ale category with the Grisette Summer Ale; Yards Brewing, which won silver for its Extra Special Ale in the extra special bitter category; and Dock Street Brewery, which won bronze in the brown porter category with its Man Full of Trouble porter.

Joining Stony Creek Brewery, two other CT craft breweries took home medals.

The brewery took second place for Munich-style dunkel or European-style dark lager. To have three of Connecticut's craft brewers recognized in this prestigious competition shows that this state is to be reckoned with.

Ryan Wibby, the co-founder of the Longmont craft brewery, dropped to one knee on Saturday to propose to his girlfriend, Robin Brower - she said yes - while his team accepted a silver medal at the 2017 Great American Beer Festival award ceremony.

Head brewer Brett Thomas and the rest of the Sunriver crew won GABF gold for two different beers-the flagship Fuzztail hefeweizen and Cinder Beast, an imperial red ale on tap now at Galveston.
