A local brewery just brought back a Good Food Award from San Francisco.

Founders Brewing Co.’s All Day IPA won a Good Food Award, an award created by food producers, farmers, journalists and grocers and organized by Seedling Projects.

The Good Food Awards ceremony and gala reception was held in San Francisco last week and saw more than 100 winners in 10 categories.

Fourteen breweries were awarded the Good Food Award.

Another Michigan brewery, Jolly Pumpkin, took home a Good Food Award for its iO.

A panel of 20 brewers, beer writers and other beer connoisseurs judged the competition.

“Breweries making Good Beer are pioneers of local manufacturing, using traditional and creative brewing methods to redefine consumer expectations for craftsmanship with their beer,” states the award’s guidelines. “These brewers aim to reshape supply chains and promote responsibility by sourcing ingredients locally and grown without synthetic inputs when possible, practicing resource conservation and supporting local communities.”

Three other Michigan companies went home with a Good Food Award, including Marcia’s Munchies and The Brinery for pickles and Swallowtail Farm for preserves.

Other Good Food categories are spirits, oils, confections, coffee, chocolate, cheese and charcuterie.
