NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) -

New York-based breweries have come home from one of the world's largest beer festivals with several medals, including one gold, for their tasty craft beers.

Seven breweries won gold, silver and bronze medals from the Great American Beer Festival, which was held in Denver from October 10 to 12. Hundreds of breweries from all over the United States participate every year.

"New York is quickly becoming the craft beer capital of the country," Gov. Andrew Cuomo said. "On behalf of all New Yorkers, I offer my congratulations to these breweries on their big win."
