A BIIA medal is one of the brewing industry's most coveted honors. Competition at this year's event was fierce, with 822 beers competing for 69 medals and eight champion beer trophies. Entries came from breweries in 48 countries.

The awards date back to the 19th century and are among the most prestigious in the world.

Two American breweries won twice - Rogue Ales (Oregon) for American Amber and Shakespeare Stout, and Fish Brewing (Washington) for Organic India Pale Ale and Organic Amber Ale.

Also honored are New Glarus Brewing (Wisconsin) for Raspberry Tart, Alaskan Brewing (Alaska) for Alaskan Smoked Porter, Boston Beer Co. for Sam Adams Chocolate Bock, BridgePort Brewing (Oregon) for BridgePort IPA, and Sierra Nevada Brewing (California) for Sierra Nevada Pale Ale.
