Oregon winners at the North American Beer Awards

The North American Beer Awards were just handed out Friday by the North American Brewers Association for their annual competition, and a number of Oregon breweries (of course!) brought home medals.

The North American Beer Awards, held in conjunction with the Mountain Brewers Beer Fest, is a unique event sanctioned by the North American Brewers Association. The competition provides an opportunity for commercially produced beers to be judged against the best beers in the country.
