When it comes beers made in the U.S., no medal is coveted more than those handed out at The Great American Beer Festival. The nation’s preeminent beer competition took place this past weekend in Denver. The annual festival awarded medals in 98 beer categories for 161 beer styles, judged by 276 experts from 13 countries.

Judges award gold, silver, and bronze medals after five different three-hour judging sessions during a three-day period. Judges are assigned beers to evaluate in their specific area of expertise and never judge their own product or any product in which they have a concern.

Here is the complete list of 2017 winners.
