In case you made the terrible mistake of missing it, the BC Beer Awards happened last Saturday. The sold-out event was once again the source of great merriment and drunkenness, and exactly what’s expected from the beating heart of craft beer culture.

Vancouver’s Brassneck Brewery won the top honours of the night, taking home the Best in Show award for their One Trick Pony Imperial IPA. Doan’s Craft Brewing Co. took home the other big prize of the night, the Richards Buell Sutton Rookie of the Year Award. Other big winners include Parallel 49 Brewing (with five awards, including one gold), Bridge Brewing, Persephone Brewing and Dageraad (all with three awards apiece).

Here’s the complete list of winners, as chosen by a panel of expert beer judges last month. Drink up.
