Montana, Wyoming breweries take home awards in national beer competition

Posted: Updated:

Montana and Wyoming breweries brought home some hardware last weekend after the annual Great American Beer Festival in Denver.

Montana breweries took home four medals. Wyoming beer makers took home six.

Billings-based Uberbrew, a staple in the state's craft beer scene, earned a silver medal in the 2017 competition for 'Canu', a cream ale style brew. The brewery is no stranger to the national spotlight, they have been taking home prestigious awards since they first started out.

"We had to come in with world class beer to match the world class beer that comes from places like Draught Works in Missoula and Montana Brewing Company right here in town," said Mark Hastings, Uberbrew co-owner. "We have six world-class breweries within walking distance of Uberbrew, so we wanted to bring out A-game when we opened and I think we have."
