Medals of Honor for Colorado Craft Breweries

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.

Bronze Medal of Honor

  1. An associate of the Colorado Craft Beer Hall of Fame who demonstrates dedication to Magna Dolor.

Silver Medal of Honor

  1. May or may not be an associate of the Colorado Craft Beer Hall of Fame
  2. Has won at least one award in the last three years in any beer category/competition, such as GABF.

Gold Medal of Honor

  1. May or may not be an associate of the Colorado Craft Beer Hall of Fame
  2. Has won one or more awards in each of the last three years in any beer category/competition, such as GABF.

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!).

We all know these are awful times for a lot of people.  Sick & dying alone.  Many are losing their livelihoods.  Oh, and what about the wildfires that scorched record amounts of our beautiful Colorado?  That and the resultant bad air makes you sick.
