With 81 categories, this is the first year Lakewood has brought home an award from this competition.

Lakewood brought home golds for its Rock Ryder (American Wheat), and Antigoon’s Revenge (Smoked/Rauch Beer), and a bronze for its La Dame du Lac (French/Belgian Ale).

Wim Bens, president and owner of Lakewood Brewing Company said,  ‪”It is definitely an honor to be recognized among so many great breweries, including DFW’s own Rahr & Sons and Peticolas. As a community we’re making world class beer and that’s something we can all be proud of.”
