Stony Creek Brewery claimed two Bronze Medals in the 2017 Great American Beer Festival, the largest commercial beer competition in the world and the premier symbol of brewing excellence.

Schlafly earned a silver medal for its Pumpkin Ale, and Perennial's Maman 2017 won silver in the wood and barrel-aged strong stout category. That category had 77 entries. "We took 2nd place at Great American Beer Festival in the classic saison category".

Surprisingly, Maine and Vermont yielded no winners, despite being the home of well-known breweries like The Alchemist, Maine Beer Company, and Lawson's Finest Liquids, whose beers rank near the top of Beer Advocate's list of best beers in the world.
