Falling Sky Brewing, Ninkasi Brewing Co., San Carlos Quince, and WildCraft Cider Works each earned a 2018 Good Food Award, given out Friday at a gala event in San Francisco.
The four Lane County businesses were among the 18 Oregon food and beverage producers who were recognized this year for their dedication to crafting authentic and responsibly produced products.
In the beer category, Falling Sky Brewing was awarded for its Dreadnut Tropical Stout, and Ninkasi Brewing Co. was honored for its Pacific Rain Pale Ale.
In the cider category, WildCraft Cider Works earned an award for its sage cider.
In the preserves category, Alvadore-based San Carlos Quince won for its quince paste.
The award winners "represent not just the best of America's food movement, but the qualities we love most about this country: our rich cultural diversity, vibrant agricultural landscape, and the creativity and integrity of its small business owners," said the organizer, Good Food Foundation, which creates events and models that engage the public in the sustainable food movement.
The winners in the 15 categories - from spirits to cheese to coffee - were picked from 2,057 entries and also passed a rigorous vetting to confirm they meet award standards regarding supply chain transparency, environmentally sound agricultural practices, humane animal husbandry and community engagement.
