Two of Oregon’s old guard, veteran breweries Pelican Brewing and Lompoc Brewing are celebrating winning medals at the 2018 Great American Beer Festival last Saturday in Denver, Colorado. Oregon brewers won 22 medals (full recap and photos here) at GABF, the most competitive and recognized beer festival in the U.S. that awarded a total of 306 medals to 280 breweries out of over 8,496 entries from 2,404 breweries. Both 22-year old breweries founded in ’96 – Lompoc Brewing claimed a much deserved Gold Medal for their Lomporter Premium Northwest Porter as did Pelican Brewing’s Silver Medal for their Sunspot IPA. Both beers have been underrecognized and hopefully this will shine a spotlight on them to gain more prominence.
There are many beer competitions but the inaugural Craft Beer Marketing Awards (CBMA) may be a first for this area of the industry.
