Winner Winner Chicken Dinner

In addition to the Royals winning everything all the time, there's been some other winners around these parts lately. The Pitch released their Best of KC winners last week and we sorted through the results and to find all the important categories (i.e., beer-related) so you don't have to. The Great American Beer Festival also announced their winners last week and we had several local breweries bring home medals. Congratulations to all the winners!

We were also very honored to see that you voted the KC Beer Blog as the 2nd Best Local Blog in town! We're lucky to get to write about beer in a place with such a great craft beer community. Thanks, Kansas City!
