TBBW 2016: Multiple breweries land Best Florida Beer accolades

In case you missed it, Florida craft breweries have walked away from the annual Best Florida Beer Championships with 93 medals and 10 trophies.

Judging wrapped up last month, but Sunday's Brewers Ball in Tampa sampled gold medal- and category-winning brews from the commercial competition's Best in Show.

The seven trophy winners were 7venth Sun Brewery (Best Small Batch Beer, Best Small Brewery), Big Storm Brewing Co. (Best Beer in Florida), Southern Brewing & Winemaking (Best Small Batch Beer runner-up), Tampa Bay Brewing Company (Best Brewpub, Best Beer in Florida runner-up), Cigar City Cider and Mead (Best Mead or Cider), Fort Myers Brewing Co. (Best Large Brewery, Best Small Batch Beer second runner-up) and Motorworks Brewing (Best Beer in Florida second runner-up).

Gold medal wins, some of which were multiple, from Bay area breweries like Six Ten Brewing, Rapp Brewing Company, Tomoka Brewing Company, LauderAle and Escape Brewing Company were also among the competition's highlights.
