Anaheim Brewery’s flagship beer, Anaheim 1888, just won a Gold Medal at the 2013 Los Angeles International Commercial Beer Competition.  The competition is part of the LA County Fair, which runs from August 30th to September 29th this year.

“We had 647 entries so the competition was definitely tough this year,” according to Jill Roman, Attractions & Competitions Supervisor for the Fair. The competition, instituted in 2000, awards gold, silver and bronze medals in 84 categories.
