California had a great showing at GABF 2011

We love craft beer… all craft beer! But as a California-based beer blog we are especially proud of all the California brewers who were awarded medals in this year’s Great American Beer Festival in Denver, Colorado. We raise a beer soaked glass in honor of our California brethren who represented us well in this years event. Cheers!
