Judges considered more than 6,000 beers at this year’s U.S. Open Beer Championship, and two Juneau beers earned honors.

Juneau’s newest brewery, Barnaby Brewing, earned a Gold award for its McSteamy California Common Ale in the category of American Amber/California Common. It shared Gold honors with a beer by Tradesman Brewing in South Carolina and finished just ahead of beers from North Carolina and Texas.

Alaskan Brewing Company’s Raspberry Wheat Ale earned a Silver award in the category of American Style Fruit Beer. Another raspberry beer, Nickel Brook Brewing’s Raspberry Uber from Ontario, won Gold.

The annual U.S. Open Beer Championship takes place in Oxford, Ohio, where judges from Canada, England and the United States judge 6,000 beers representing more than 100 styles. Two of Alaskan Brewing’s beers — Amber and Smoked Porter — won Gold in their respective categories in the event last year.
