The seventh annual Monticello Lions Brewfest was held over the weekend in Monticello.

Over 50 vendors lined up along the Mississippi in Monticello Saturday for the Lions Brewfest, but one stood above the rest.

Spilled Grain Brewhouse in Annandale was announced on Facebook Monday as the Best of the Fest.

According to Spilled Grain Brewhouse's Facebook post, their "Nut Hugger" porter was the most popular beer of the festival. And no wonder -- the award-winning chocolate peanut butter porter also won Bronze at the 2019 North American Beer Awards!

Spilled Grain is hardly unfamiliar with recognition and awards for their beer, however. Just one month ago, the brewery won Silver at the 2019 U.S. Open Beer Cup in Oxford, Ohio for their Bearded Man Old Ale.

Last year, Spilled Grain also won Silver for their False Hope Wheatwine at the Great American Beer Festival in Colorado.

The Monticello Lions Brewfest is always held the third weekend of August.
