In 2010, the Beverage Testing Institute’s panel of judges in Chicago evaluated almost 400 beers and ciders in nearly 80 style categories from around the world for the World Beer Championships.


Out of all the breweries and beers entered last year, Full Sail was one of the top scoring breweries overall taking 10 golds and 7 silvers. Five of Full Sail’s beers scored among the highest in their respective categories and in addition to receiving gold medals these beers were named The Best Beers of 2010.


Two of our ales scored top in their category and were named The Best Beers of 2010. Previously, our Northwest-style IPA has won 8 gold medals and the godlike nectar that is our Pale Ale has won 6 gold medals. Both were just awarded gold medals from the 2011 WBC.
