Wild Fields Brewhouse in Atascadero, California has continued its medal streak at another competitive beer competition.

The brewhouse won "brewery of the year" at this year's The Great American Beer Festival along with three other gold medals.

This year, the Great American Beer Festival was the largest ever with 9,904 entries from 2,154 U.S. breweries.

This was the 40th Annual Great American Beer Festival and the largest competition to date.

The judging took nine days with 235 beer expert judges from seven countries and 310 volunteers.

Wild Fields Brewhouse opened in December 2019. They have opened and closed their on-premises location four times due to the pandemic, staffing and business demands.

Owner, Jacque Fields said in a press release that being recognized for their excellent craft beer is nothing short of a needed reminder of why they started this business; to share their love for craft beer with their community.

Wild Fields Brewhouse will be celebrating another wild win on Sunday, October 16 during their outdoor market

This will be open from 12 to 3 p.m. in their parking lot. The event will feature local vendors, a Be The Match Registry signup booth, a Gold Flight of the three gold medal beers and the Atascadero Beach Mexican Lager which won gold along with these three beers during the World Beer Cup in May 2022.
