We are especially proud of our 2014 wins, during Jared’s inaugural year as the head brewer at Altitude! ALTitude Altbier won gold medals at both the World Beer Cup and North American Beer Awards. Pedal House Pilsner also captured a gold medal at the North American Beer Awards.

In 2015, we captured a gold medal at the NABA for a specialty brew, Looking Glass Old English Ale. Lovesick IPA won both a first place award in the hops category, as well as the coveted Best in Show award at the Downtown Laramie Brewfest competition. We won the coveted Steinley Cup competition in Saratoga. Finally, I’m Burning For You Chili Ale won a people’s choice award at the Cody, Wyoming Brew Fest.
