Creating quality craft beer is science, art, and alchemy. We see no reason to complicate matters further.
That’s why Colorado Craft Beer Hall of Fame’s medaling system is simple. Based on ample evidence that great beers do, in fact, come from great brewers, we award three levels of medals, largely based on the total number of competitive awards a craft brewer has earned in the last three years.
Basically, the more awards won, the shinier and more golden-hued the CCBHOF medal, capiche? (Think of it like the Olympics podiums, but without, well … podiums.)
Like we said, simple.
Because beer styles come and go within breweries — sometimes faster than a crowd can drain a keg — we believe this straightforward system provides beer connoisseurs with the best chance of finding and tasting Colorado’s greatest craft beers.

Please let us know if your brewery has won any awards that we missed, and we’ll update the Honor Roll. Medals of Honor criteria subject to change without prior notice (our lawyers made us say this!).
Words like unprecedented, unparalleled and extraordinary don’t adequately describe our situation. For Colorado, this is the bust that always follows the boom. Extraordinary circumstances require extraordinary measures.
