New York Area 2014 Great American Beer Festival Winners

New York breweries Gun Hill and Grimm Artisanal Ales both took home medals from this year’s Great American Beer Festival. Gun Hill Brewing in the Bronx took home a gold medal for Void of Light in the Foreign-Style Stout category, and Grimm Artisanal Ales from Brooklyn took home a silver for Double Negative, an Imperial Stout.

New York state was also represented by Peekskill Brewery and Brewery Ommegang, who both won silver medals. Peekskill won for NYPA in the highly competitive American-Style Pale Ale category, and Brewery Ommegang's Ommegang Witte took the silver in the Belgian-Style Witbier category.

Overall, the Brewers Association awarded 268 medals in 90 categories at this year’s Great American Beer Festival. This year, total entries reached 5,507, an increase of about 16%. It took 222 judges from 10 countries to choose the winners. It’s a tough job, but someone’s gotta do it.

For 12 years running now, the most-entered category is and was again American-Style India Pale Ale (IPA), which had 279 different brews vying for a medal. This year’s second-most popular category was the broad Herb and Spice Beer (150 entries), followed by the American-Style Pale Ale (145 entries). Breweries continue to step up their game, which was proven by a four-way tie between 10 Barrel Brewing, Barley Brown’s Brew Pub, Devil’s Backbone, and Left Hand Brewing for most medals won (each taking home three).

Interestingly, there were two categories in which not all medals were awarded: no gold in Golden or Blonde Ale and no silver given in English-Style Brown Ale.
