OURAY — Ouray Brewing Company’s Camp Bird Blonde Ale was the recipient of the Judges Award for Best Lighter/Summer Beer at the 14th annual 2012 San Juan Brewfest in Durango, CO in late August.

OBC’s blonde ale was selected as top of its category from a field of over 30 local and regional breweries including Breckenridge Brewery, Colorado Boy Brewery, New Belgium Brewery, Sierra Nevada Brewing Co., SKA Brewing Co., and Telluride Brewing Co.
