Congratulations to Florida breweries who medaled at U.S. Open Beer Tasting Championship

Several Florida craft breweries went to sleep Sunday night not sure how they would have placed in the U.S. Open Beer Tasting Championship, and when they awoke on Monday morning, those breweries found out that they had taken home medals while competing against very stiff competition.

Congratulations to all of the U.S. Open Beer Tasting Championship winners!

There was a time in competitions like this when Floridian breweries would earn one or two medals and would be edged out of a very crowded field.  The number of Florida’s breweries and beers that earned medals in the 2021 U.S. Open Beer Tasting Championship is a testament to the brewing talent that resides in the Sunshine State and the total growth of craft beer the state has seen.
