Colorado breweries took home 28 awards for their brews entered across 101 categories — from session IPAs to dark lagers. In addition to Eater’s Colorado brewery guides, maps, and lists of past GABF medal-winners, this awards roundup should be a good jumping off point for the next taproom tour or six-pack purchase.
