The Great American Beer Festival in Colorado was this weekend. Awards from the Great American Beer Festival are recognized around the world as a symbol of excellent brewing. They are some of the most coveted awards in the industry because professionals from around the world join together in small groups to taste beers in specific categories without knowing the brand of the beer.

CraftBeer.com has named the original HopCat in Grand Rapids, Mich., among its Top 5 Great American Beer Bars for 2014 and No. 1 Beer Bar in the North Central Region.

Founders Brewing Co. loves to keep people guessing each year with their popular Backstage Series release, not revealing specifics as to which beer will be released or on what date until the last possible minute. The recipes often evolve from various taproom-only releases made available throughout the year and their new pilot small batch system has served as an incubator as of late for many of these new test-run brews. This year’s earlier release of Smoked Porter is an example. Also this year, the taproom featured a new series of “SpyPA” released which included such favorites as Sleeper Cell and Infiltrator leading up to and hinting at this year’s second Backstage Series release Dissenter.
