Colorado breweries scored two dozen awards in one of the world’s most prestigious beer competitions.
State of beer: 19 breweries took home medals Wednesday in the World Beer Cup competition — often dubbed the “Olympics of Beer — with eight first-time winners and seven golds.
The competition is hosted by the Boulder-based Brewers Association, and the winners were announced at the Craft Brewers Conference in Nashville, Tennessee.
Of note: Verboten in Loveland won three awards — including two golds — and Edgewater’s Joyride, Centennial’s Resolute and Denver’s River North each won two medals.
Cannonball Creek in Golden won its third World Beer Cup award for Trump Hands, a session IPA.
Cerebral in Denver — Axios’ top Colorado brewery last year — won a silver in the much-contested hazy pale ale category with its Muscle Memory.
