2016 Grand Tasting 'Best Of Fest' Winner

The results are here! All of the votes have been counted and the people have spoken, let's hear it for the new champions Avalanche Brewing Company. Founded in 2011 by brewmaster Austin Lashley in the landmark Avalanche cafe and bakery in Silverton, Colorado, the award winning craft brewery specializes in bold flavors that match the aesthetic of their home.

To the crowd's delight, Austin and his team showcased these three winning styles at this year's Grand Tasting: Dawn Patrol Breakfast Stout, Double Diamond Blackberry Gose, and Glass OFF! Citrus Session IPA.

We want to send a big shout out and thank you to all the breweries that attended the 2016 Telluride Blues & Brews Festival Grand Tasting. We are overwhelmed by the continued support from the brewery community and are truly grateful for your participation. Cheers!
