    My wife has a philosophy about Texas craft beer:

    “Why go elsewhere when there’s so much greatness brewed right here in the Lone Star State?”

    And she’s right.

    USOpen2017GoldMedal copyWinners of the 2017 U.S. Open Beer Championship were announced this week.  More than 6,000 beers were judged in about 100 categories.  Entries came from all over the U.S and several other countries ranging from Belize to Vietnam.  Texas craft brewers came to represent with 27 medals; they did us proud!

    Winning 36 awards, California was the only state with more award winning beers than Texas this year. Texas was ranked 3rd in the medal count last year, but pulled ahead of Florida for 2nd place this year.  For the third year in a row, Texas beat out such famously beer-centric states such as Colorado, Oregon, Wisconsin, and North Carolina.

    In addition to performing well in the statewide medal count, Texas also represented in the Top 10 Breweries list with Guadalupe Brewing coming in at 8th place.

    You don’t have to go all the way to a contest in Ohio to get these award winning craft beers.  Five of the Texas breweries winning awards at the U.S. Open also won medals at Best Little Brewfest in Texas Professional Brewers Contest, right here in Lewisville, Texas!
