We were not surprised to hear that 6 Minnesota breweries won awards at the 28th annual Great American Beer Festival. After all, we do have exceptional beer here. According to Minnesota Business Magazine, out of 1,309 breweries and brewpubs involved, Minnesota-based Badger Hill Brewing, Bent Paddle Brewing, Indeed Brewing, Minneapolis Town Hall Brewery, Steel Toe Brewing, and Summit Brewing all won medals. Minnesota as a whole ranked 11th in the competition. Congratulations!
