It's good to see some local winners but looking at the results it seems Colorado and California are at the forefront. I've always been a fan of the Oscar Blues , especially the Dales which didn't win but I'll be seaching out the ones that did. All in all it's great to see so many breweries putting out so many good products that not that long ago didn't exist.Now if we could just get our hand on them.
