Breweries from Ontario, Alberta, and British Columbia are among the award winners at the 2018 US Open Beer Championship.
The annual competition announced the champions and medal winners on July 9 after judges from England, Canada and the United States evaluated more than 6,300 beers representing more than 110 different styles from professional breweries and award-winning home-brewers across the world.
Of the 377 medals awarded in 2018, Canadian beers took home 15 in a range of categories.
