HIGH POINT, N.C. – A local Piedmont brewery is one of the seven best in the country, according to Business Insider.

Brown Truck Brewery in High Point was recently named by the magazine as the best “very small brewing company” in the U.S.

The Great American Beer Festival holds an annual competition to find the best beers and breweries in the country. There are seven categories for breweries from small to big.

More than 1,700 breweries participated and the winners were selected by a jury of more than 200 beer industry professionals, according to Business Insider.

The jury selected the winners by tasting beer without knowing the brand names. The event took place last month in Denver, Colo.

Brown Truck’s winning beers were the American Lager and Saison.

Brown Truck Brewing manager Randi Loggins said they are honored and it’s great to be recognized.

Loggins said business has been great and they have received a lot of support from the community.

“It’s just amazing,” she said. “We’re happy to be in High Point.”
