Some congratulations are in order for Central Oregon beer makers. Several local breweries took home top honors at the 2023 World Beer Cup Awards.
Here’s a look at the Central Oregon brewery awards (Place – drink – category):
- Gold – Gindulgence – Specialty Berliner-Style Weisse
- Gold – Cucumber Crush – Field Beer
- Gold – BeeLoved – Honey Beer

“This is actually our second gold. We had our first gold way back in 2016 with one of our flagship beers as far as tale half advising, but that being sometime in the past, it’s really nice to get back there and perform on this level again,” said Brett Thomas with Sunriver Brewing.
