The silver medal went to the Frankenmuth Pilsner, and the brewery took bronze medals home for its Oktoberfest and Frankenmuth Hefeweizen.
The pilsner is a German-style golden lager, the Hefeweizen is a sweet mixture of spices and fruit with hints of clove and banana, and the Oktoberfest is a copper-colored seasonal brew.
The pilsner and the Hefeweizen are two of the Frankenmuth Brewery's six flagship beers.
Breweries around the world entered more than 400 beers in the competition.
