I went through this list and I've had none of them. The closest is regular Sam Adams, but I only saw SA black label and SA red something.

The name in bold below takes the cake for best name:
Category 72: German-Style Pale Wheat Ale (20 Entries)
Gold Distelhäuser Kristallweizen
Distelhäuser Brauerei Ernst Bauer GmbH
Tauberbischofsheim, Germany
Silver I'm Half the Beer I used to be (Harvest Light)
BJ's Restaurant and Brewery - Chandler
Chandler, Arizona
Bronze Weihenstephan Kristall-Weissbier
Bayerische Staatsbrauerei Weihenstephan
Freising, Germany

Samuel Adams Black Lager is on there -- good choice, that stuff rocks.

I haven't tried the Irish Red Samuel Adams, which also got an award.

Pabst seemed to have awards in a few categories, too. Never tried anything from Pabst myself. Though tbh I haven't tried much. :P

I never realized all of the absolutely horrible beers brewed by Pabst.

I'd hate to be one of the judges for this category... (What's sad is that Bud Light is easily the top selling, and didn't make it. Nor Coors Light, or Lite)
Category 33: American-Style Light Lager (34 Entries)
Gold Old Milwaukee Light
Pabst Brewing Co.
Woodridge, Illinois

Silver Lone Star Light
Pabst Brewing Co.
Woodridge, Illinois

Bronze Natural Light
Anheuser-Busch Inc.
St. Louis, Missouri

I see Hoegaarden won the gold in the Belgian-style White. (Nice to see the Belgian beer win in the Belgian-style category) I tried one of those last weekend. Light, citrusy taste, but pretty good.

I can't even stand Keystone Light as I think it tastes like water, mostly. I've been told that Natural Light is similar. Maybe it's just a Texas thing, but I find one of these "awards" thing's bogus when Shiner Bock isn't to be found anywhere on any of the lists...

Wow, 91 categories.

I had no clue that the best "Baltic-Style Porter" in the whole world was made is Wisconsin. Whoda thunk?

And the best Experimental Beer is made in Alpine, California. Well, that one I can believe if Alpine is anywhere near San Franscisco...

And now back to work with beer on my mind...
