Elysian Brewing's SILVER medal in the Fruit and Vegetable Beer category was no small feat. There are just some categories at the GABF that are incredibly crowded with beer, good beer. This category had nearly 100 entries. I tasted more than a few of them on the floor, and I wouldn't have wanted to be a judge for that one. I talked a little bit with Dick Cantwell after the awards ceremony about strategy. He's a judge at the festival, too. Pardon my audio. It all had to be cut and put through the ringer because the exhibition hall was so freaking loud.
