Six San Diego brewers captured gold medals at the fourth annual Brewers Cup of California, with stalwart standout Pizza Port collecting the most.

Why it matters: Pizza Port, one of San Diego's OG craft brewers, started brewing in 1992, long before the region gained national notoriety — and its trophy haul shows it's still among the very best.

The big picture: San Diego breweries won 26 medals in the statewide competition, with TapRoom Beer Company in North Park taking home the second-most hardware.

  • BlackPlague brewing (Oceanside), Burgeon Beer Company (Carlsbad), Kilowatt Brewing Company (Kearny Mesa), Smoking Cannon Brewery (Ramona) and The Julian Beer Company (Julian) also took home gold medals in various categories.
