Two breweries based in Dallas-Fort Worth made a commendable showing at the San Diego International Beer Competition over the weekend.

Fort Worth's Rahr and Sons Brewing Co. and Garland's Lakewood Brewing Co. placed in the competition, which is associated with the 11-year-old San Diego International Beer Festival. Rahr and Sons won two awards, while Lakewood won one. They stood out among 1,564 entries from 291 breweries worldwide, according to the competition's website.

Rahr and Sons won a silver medal for its Rahr's Blonde in the European lager category and a bronze for its Iron Thistle in the Scottish-style ale category. Lakewood took home gold for its beer, Goatman, in the American-style India black ale category.

"We're pumped that Goatman won gold in the Black IPA category against titans of the brewing industry that basically invented that category," said Wim Bens, founder of Lakewood Brewing Co. "It goes to show that you don't have to be in California to brew world class IPAs."

Both Rahr and Sons and Lakewood have been honored at other competitive events, such as last year's U.S. Open Beer Competition. In 2016, Rahr and Sons brought home three awards and Lakewood brought home one. In 2015, Lakewood placed second overall in the same competition.
