The 2012 LA County Fair saw the return of the Los Angeles International Commercial Craft Beer Competition. Held on June 9, judges from all over California brought their expertise to bear. After two days of judging and drinking, Faultline Brewing Company, a San Jose family restaurant, won two awards.

“Faultline has placed really well in these competitions since 2007, and we have won more than 35 different beer awards,” Christa Shaw of Faultline Brewing Company said.

At the LA County Fair, in the “German-style Marzen” category, Faultline received the gold for its Oktoberfest brew, besting both the Boston Beer Company’s Samuel Adams Octoberfest and Sprecher Brewing Company’s Oktoberfest. For the “South German-Style Hefeweizen” category, Faultline received the bronze, strongly holding its own against Rahr and Sons Brewing Company’s Summertime Wheat and Nebraska Brewing Company’s EOS Hefeweizen. The local brewery also received an honorable mention in the “American-Style Wheat Beer, Light American Wheat Ale or Lager without Yeast” category.

In addition, Faultline Brewing won six awards at the California State Fair.

In face-offs with brewery companies such as Lightning Brewing, Karl Strauss and Loomis Basin Brewing at the California State Fair, Faultline Brewing gave a brutal fight that ended with six respectable awards. Its stout received the first place above dozens of other stouts, while its Kolsch, Hefeweizen, Oktoberfest, Doppelbock and Belgian Blonde all placed second.
