1993 Great American Beer Festival medal winners.

The Great American Beer Festival was held October 8-9, 1993 at Currigan Hall in Denver, CO, and hosted 19,000 beer drinkers. The festival was attended by 208 U.S. breweries serving 955 brands. Of the 955 beers available, 607 were on tap. The Festival's certified beer judges worked their way through hundreds of entries to select medal winners in each of 32 categories. Medal winners ran the gamut from tiny start-up microbreweries to America's largest plants. Among the top tier brewers, the Miller Brewing Co. led the way with two golds and a silver, followed by G. Heileman with two golds and a bronze. Anheuser-Busch walked away with two silvers (including one for Bud) and a bronze; Pabst took a gold and a bronze, and Coors took a silver for their Winterfest. Second-tier brewers also enjoyed a harvest of medals: Genesee Brewing Co. took a silver for their cream ale, Jos. Huber a silver for their dark and the Evansville Brewing Co., picked up two golds--one for Drummond Bros. Lager and the other in the N.A. category. The Anchor Brewing Co. was awarded a silver and a bronze, the Sierra Nevada Brewing Co. took a gold, August Schell got a silver, and the Minnesota Brewing Co. won a bronze.

Among micro and contract brewers, there were several multiple medal winners. The Marin Brewing Co. of Larkspur, CA took a gold, silver and bronze; the Rockies Brewing Co. of Boulder, CO won a gold and a silver; and the Stoudt Brewery of Adamstown, PA and the The Great Lakes Brewing Co. of Cleveland. OH each took home a gold and a silver. The Alaskan Brewing & Bottling Co. of Juneau, AK won a gold and a bronze.

Dempsey's Sonoma Brewing Co. of Petaluma, CA and the Big Time Brewing Co. of Seattle, WA each won a gold and a bronze; and the Pike Place Brewery of Seattle, WA and the Boston Beer Co. each won a silver and a bronze. Newcomer Brewski Brewing Co. of Culver City, CA took two bronzes.

Several well-regarded microbreweries also took single gold medals: The New England Brewing Co. of Norwalk, CT won a gold for their Atlantic Amber; the Pennsylvania Brewing Co./Allegheny Brewery took a gold for their Penn Light Lager and the Celis Brewery, Inc. won a gold for their Celis White.
