Ben and I spent the greater portion of last week in Denver for the Great American Beer Festival. If you are a beer fan and you have not been, put this event on your bucket list with a permanent marker. The week was absolutely incredible. Everywhere you turn, there is a legendary brewer, author or someone they work for. While the Brewer’s Association hosted an extremely well run event, 60,000 plus beer drinkers and more draft beer than any place on the planet ever led to some crazy times and quickly used up phone batteries. Here are a few pics that managed to survive the four day marathon!
Avery Brewing’s Special tappings were some of the most popular, delicious and entertaining!
As previously mentioned, the Great American Beer Fest was an amazing experience and I hope to return next year! A special thanks goes to the Brewer’s Association, the city and citizens of Denver, every brewer and brewery rep as well as every beer enthusiast we talked to! Congrats to all the winners as well!
