Well, the results are in, and New Mexico has once again shined at the Great American Beer Festival. A year after a record eight medals (the best mark before that in a single year had been just four), NM breweries piled up another eight this time around in Denver, including a record five gold medals. That’s not too shabby for one of the least populous states in the country. The winners were announced in a huge ceremony Saturday morning that was streamed live online.
And as I originally wrote below about leaving for work before the breweries of the year were announced and all … voila, I pulled a reverse jinx of sorts. Marble Brewery was named the Small Brewing Company of the Year. As in the best in the entire country. Wow. Congratulations to Ted, Josh, Leah, and everyone else! This is a huge achievement for a New Mexico brewery.
