The Great American Beer Festival held their coveted awards ceremony yesterday, and by afternoon had the list of winners online; you can view the page here. They have the complete list in PDF format, but I like the searchable format they have on that page too; it makes it easy to pull the list of Oregon winners.

All three Central Oregon breweries who sent beer won medals this year: Deschutes Brewery, Bend Brewing Company, and Cascade Lakes Brewing. Kudos to Cascade Lakes in particular, on their first-ever win! Both Deschutes and BBC have pulled down medals before.
(Deschutes also won the "Festival Flair Award" for "Best Brewery Booth"—which I imagine is largely because they had Woody there.)
Congrats to everyone involved!
