GABF came and went, leaving us with hangovers , indestructible tasting glasses, and some home state pride: Colorado brewers won more gold medals than any other state.
The state's powerhouse breweries dominated (New Belgium , Rock Bottom , and Odell Brewing Company  all took home gold medals), but many smaller breweries did as well, giving us a reason to extend Beer Week a little while longer. Bonus: Colorado teams also placed first and third in the Pro-Am competition (amateur home brewers are paired with brewmasters).
With so many winners this year, we picked a few that you can't pass up:
Upslope Pumpkin Ale, Upslope Brewing , Boulder
Berliner Weisse, Crabtree Brewing Company , Greeley
Graham Cracker Porter, Denver Beer Company , Denver
Friek, Odell Brewing Company , Fort Collins
Gluten Free Lemon Pale, Strange Brewing Company , Denver
Take a look at the complete list  to see if your favorite breweries took home medals.
