Great American Beer Festival 2016

Congratulations to Florida’s Great American Beer Festival Winners

As a testament to the monumental growth of craft beer across the globe, the Great American Beer Festival continues to grow and invite more breweries from across the United States.  That means more amazing beers submitted for the judging at the festival competition, one of the most prestigious and competitive in the world.  That also means that Florida’s craft breweries are facing stiffer competition from breweries both new and old.  This is not a knock against Florida’s breweries, as some of the best beer in the world is crafted in the Sunshine State, just an acknowledgement of the level of competition that everyone is working with.
