Right here is a list of winners from the recent U.S. Open Beer Championship in Atlanta. Plenty of familiar names on the list, several I agree with, a couple I whole-heartedly disagree with (read: Sam Adams Blackberry Witbier). Scrolling through the list is not a bad way to pass a few minutes. You’ll see a lot of beers you might not be familiar with, and see what beer style/category several of the beers you’ve had fall into. Of note, Sam Adams took home a medal haul, winning the American Light category with SA Light, the American Lager category with Boston Lager, the Dopple/Strong Bock category with its Double Bock, the American Wheat category with its Summer Ale, and the Herb and Spice category with its Imperial White. I’ve had all of those and can concur they’re all pretty good. As a side note, also in the American Lager category, Sierra Nevada’s Summerfest scored the silver. I tried this one a few weeks ago and would highly recommend it as an easy-drinking bevvy for a nice, warm day in the yard.
