Silver and Gold


Props to Silver Moon for taking down Oregon's lone gold medal at the recent Great American Beer Festival in Denver. Silver Moon nabbed top honors for its Dark Side Stout in the Foreign-Style Stout Category, beating out 23 other entries for the top honor.

Billed as North America's largest beer festival, GABF drew more than many 3,900 entries this year, up from 3,500 last year.

"Everything was bigger this year - the number of beers, attendance. It was just insane," said Silver Moon owner Tyler Reichert.

Silver Moon also grabbed a bronze medal for its Legacy Lager in the Pilsner category.

Other Oregon winners included Deschutes Brewery, which grabbed two medals for its barrel-aged beers and Full Sail Brewery, which claimed a silver medal for its Sessions Black lager. A tip of the hat to the tiny Baker City brewer Barley Brown's pub for a bronze medal in the popular American-Style Stout category.
