(Idaho Falls, ID) As previously mentioned in the NABA Idaho roundup, awards were announced during Friday's ceremony. Held since 1997 the North American Brewer’s Association awards ceremony is probably one of the least advertised and craft beer award shows in existence. Oregon this year it seems is yet again proving why its self titled name of ‘Beervana’ applies as they amassed a rather healthy twelve gold, nine silver, and seven bronze medals for a total of over twenty eight medals for the state.

image0022The North American Brewers Association TM was founded in late 1996.  Since that date, NABA has undertaken the organizational development of corporate policies, procedures, memberships, as well as the sanctioning of beer awards, beer festivals, and a beer judging and evaluation course. NABA has over 40 members. –source, the NABA’s bio page

     Additionally in case you missed out this year, the 15th Annual Mountain Brewer’s festival was held the same weekend. Just as in previous year’s the festival generated through admission and drink ticket purchases, money toward local charities. Those that were there I am sure had a blast and to those that missed it I am sure you will have another chance come next year to visit the grounds of Sandy Downs.

     I know that some of you are curious on the winners from Oregon here they are according to medal won. The notables included six medals for Barley brown in Baker City, seven for Pacific City native Pelican, four from Ashland's Caldera, and three for Bend based Deschutes.

     By the way if you are looking for results for Washington, head over to Washington Beer blog as they have included a comprehensive list of winners from the Evergreen state.

Cheers,
