The 30th Great American Beer Festival wrapped up in Denver, CO this past weekend with the event’s annual award ceremony. Thousands of beers and hundreds of breweries compete to have their entries snag a top-three placement in a wide range of styles. This year, Charleston’s Revelry and Travelers Rest’s Swamp Rabbit each took home some new hardware.
There are nearly 100 style categories participating breweries can enter beers into, and each category has dozens of entries from across the country.
Both Revlery and Swamp Rabbit won silver medals in respective categories: Revelry for its Oh My Darlyn! Scotch Ale in the Scotch Ale category (76 entries) and Swamp Rabbit for its Numbskull Bock in the Bock category (36 entries).
These are the first medals for either brewery; they’re the first medals for South Carolina since 2014 (bringing the state’s all-time medal count to 16); and they’re the first breweries other than Holy City to win a GABF medal since 2010.
