Anderson Valley Brewing - AwardsIf you’ve ever tried our ales, you’ll know why we are one of the most highly awarded US craft breweries. But even if you are a dyed-in-the-wool Anderson Valley Brewing Company fan, and are constantly telling friends, acquaintances, and people you just met that we brew some of the best beer in the world, you may not know what medals and awards we’ve won (it’s even hard for us to keep up).
