Marble took a Silver in the German-Style Pilsner category and a Bronze in the Dortmunder category. Their crew, pictured, is not looking at me because I refused to wave my hand at them like a paparazzi photographer at a red carpet event. Also, I was holding a complimentary donut so it was hard to wave and eat at the same time.
La Cumbre won a Bronze in the highly competitive IPA category (252 entries, the most ever in any category) with their Project Dank IPA.
How about Santa Fe's Second Street Brewery getting a Gold for Rod's Steam Bitter in the Amber-Style Lager category? Great for the underdog brewery!
I would call Sierra Blanca an underdog as well but they won a medal last year. Ditto for this year, where their Nut Brown took Silver in the English-Style Brown category.
Blue Corn took two medals: Silver in the American-Style Brown Ale category and coming up just short of their named Gold Medal Stout with a Silver in the Oatmeal Stout category.
I'm sorry that I am apparently still on dial-up in a fiber optics world, but let's hear it for eight New Mexico medals at the 2013 Great American Beer Festival!
