Dam Brewing Staff At GABF Medal CeremonyMcLuhr’s Irish Stout won a silver medal in the Classic Irish-Style Stout category at the GABF held on Sat. Sept. 18, 2010.

The Dam had all but given up its hopes for a medal until category 71 out of 79  was announced.  After all,  519 breweries submitted 3,601 beers for judging.  It is really difficult to win a medal.   The sad faces of the brewmasters who went away empty handed was heart wrenching.

Tickets for the Great American Beer Festival had sold out a record 5 weeks prior to the 3 day festival.  More than 460 breweries brought over 2,000 beers for tasting.  237 medals were awarded.  40 medals were awarded to 22 Colorado breweries.
