On Saturday we welcomed around 300 of the most knowledgeable, dedicated beer enthusiasts in the area to crown the best beers, foods, and pairings around at the 24th annual Brewpub Shootout.

The quality on offer this year represented the most impressive spread we’ve had in many, many years and the tight results of the vote reflected that; everyone involved truly brought their “A game” and we can’t thank enough all of the brewers and chefs who made it possible.

Special thanks also go out to our devoted attendees, our hosts Metropolitan Brewing, and the CBS volunteers and board members who put in many hours of work to make this event so special once again.
