One of our favorite parts of The Great American Beer Festival is seeing breweries take home gold. The competition, held in Denver at the end of September, had 9,904 entries from commercial breweries with gold, silver, and bronze medals being awarded in 98 categories. This week, we’re highlighting 12 of our favorite beers from 2022 that won well-deserved Great American Beer Festival gold (from Topa Topa Brewing Co. Level Line Pale Ale to Comrade Brewing More Dodge Less RAM).
If you love beer, you’re in the right place—at the right time. With over 9,000 breweries in the United States alone, there are more craft beer varieties, styles, and flavors than ever. And, every day, experimentation and innovation are taking beer in new directions. To keep track of what’s brewing, we’re taste-testing and calling out some of the best beers you can find. If you want to pick up something special to drink, check out our favorite beers available now.
Topa Topa Brewing Co. Level Line Pale Ale
Level Line from Topa Topa took home gold GABF honors for English Ale this year. With aromas of pine and tangerine, Level Line is a bright, hazy apple juice color with tight carbonation. Take a sip and you’ll get smooth, hoppy, citrus flavors. Topa Topa likens it to “a creek running through the forest” and we tend to agree.
