It’s time again for beer lovers, connoisseurs, and all those that create the tasty beers, to converge on Colorado for the Great American Beer Festival!
The yearly event will commence on October 2nd and run through October 4th. Attracting thousands of people from all over, this event serves up the largest collection of U.S. beers and holds a private competition. Breweries from near and far will take over the Colorado Convention Center, pouring their best craft creations during three different tasting sessions across the three-day period.
Featuring over 600 of America’s greatest breweries and over 2,800 different beers to try, GABF is a beer lovers dream come true. You’ll get to enjoy the big names like Alaskan Brewing Co, Anchor Brewing, Lagunitas, Sierra Nevada and many more. Plus, lots of great Colorado craft brewers will be showing up including AC Golden, Black Bottle, Blue Moon Brewing, Boulder Beer, New Belgium, Oskar Blues, and tons of your other favorite local brewers.
If you weren’t lucky enough to get a ticket to the tasting, don’t worry. Breweries, beer bars, and liquor stores are all getting in the spirit too, hosting special tappings, releasing rare beers, and fun events. Breweries from all over the nation will be in town representing their craft and will be looking to share their passion (or beer), so now is the time to get out and check the draft and bottle list as there will be a slew of options that won’t likely be back any time soon.
