Beer lovers, rejoice. The best beer in the country is brewed right here in Wyoming.

Over the weekend, The Melvin Brewing Company was named the 2017 "Brewing Group Of The Year" at the annual Great American Beer Festival in Denver.

Melvin's Hubert MPA also won a gold medal in the American Style Pale Ale category. It's the latest in a long line of medals and awards for Melvin at the so-called "Super Bowl of Beer".

Meanwhile, Sheridan's Black Tooth Brewing claimed the silver medal in the Irish-Style Red category with their Bomber Mountain and Coal Creek Tap in Laramie won the bronze medal for their Scottish-Style Ale.
