The Church Brew Works won two top awards at the 2012 Great American Beer Festival, the largest national beer competition.

The Lawrenceville microbrewery and restaurant won first place as Best Large Brewpub, and brewer Steve Sloan captured a related brewer of the year honor.

Other awards: a gold, silver and two bronze medals for its ales and lagers, specifically Heini's Hooch, Pious Monk Dunkel, Celestial Gold and Pipe Organ Pale.

The business opened in 1996 in the 110-year-old former St. John the Baptist Catholic Church. A total 4,338 beers competed in 84 categories at the Denver festival.
