1999 North American Beer Awards

The North American Brewers Association announced the medal winners of the 1999 North American Beer Awards during the Mountain Brewers Beer Fest in Idaho Falls, Idaho on June 5, 1999.

The announcement followed three days of judging by panels made up of brewers, beer writers and certified judges. Conducting their evaluations in a 'blind' format, the groups of judges were served beers in glasses marked with a code number known only to the organizers. When all results were decoded and tabulated, the Gold, Silver and Bronze medals were awarded.

Congratulations to the winners of the 1999 North American Beer Awards:
