Breweries in the Beer Yard marketing region of the Delaware Valley are bringing home nine Great American Beer Festival Medals ths year, hearly double those won in 2016. Pennsylvania breweries overall accounted for 15 medals, returning the Commonwealth to the role of the East Coast's best beer producing state, a honor it used to win as a matter of course but which has not been achieved in recent years.

Sly Fox (Grisette Summer Ale) and 2SP (Russian Imperial Stout) each won a Gold Medal. Silvers went to Iron Hill Media for Solzhenitsyn Imperial Stout and Russian Imperial Stout and to Yards for ESA. Bronze medals were won by Dock Street's Man Full of Trouble Porter, Neshaminy Creek for Croydon Is Burning, Stickman for Cousin Stoopid, and Weyerbacher for Riserva. The ninth win for the Beer Yard market was a silver to New Jersey's River Horse for Tripel Horse.

Overall, 293 medals were awarded to 266 Breweries. Winners were chosen out of 7,923 competition entries from 2,217 breweries in 50 states plus Washington, D.C. (a 15 percent and 24 percent increase respectively from the 7,301 entries and 1,783 breweries in 2016).
