Winners announced – the Washington Fresh Hop Beer Awards



Before we talk about the competition and all the winners, a special congratulations to Old Stove Brewing, which brought home four medals this year at the Washington Beer Awards Fresh Hop Fresh Competition.

Below we share the winners of the second-annual Washington Beer Awards® Fresh Hop Competition. This year 60 Washington breweries submitted 136 fresh hop beers for evaluation and judging. All of the beers submitted were brewed in Washington state and were commercially available in Washington. Of course, all of the beers were brewed using fresh hops, which are generally defined as hops that are not more than 24 hours off the bine.

The entries were evaluated in a blind format using the Brewers Association Style Guidelines by panels of trained beer judges who awarded Gold, Silver, and Bronze placements for each category grouping. You can learn more about the competition here.
