With over 700 breweries pouring more than 3,500 different beers, The Great American Beer Festival in Denver, Colorado represents the largest collection of U.S beer ever served. If you followed #CBConTour earlier this month, you got a first-hand look at this MASSIVE festival (October 2-4, 2014 was the 22nd GABF, and it has grown every year since its inception), along with some of the beer-y happenings throughout the “Centennial State” (hop puns appreciated).
Prepared with some insider knowledge from past GABF attendees (including many of our own Staff #BeerGeeks), we dove head first into the Saturday afternoon “Brewers Association (Craft Beer Cellar is a proud member of the BA)/ American Homebrewers Association (AHA Memberships are available for sale at many CBC stores)” session, which came on the heels of the GABF Awards Ceremony. (Special “CBC Style of the Month” Congratulations are in order to Wolaver’s Organic Brewing for taking home the GOLD MEDAL in the Pumpkin Beer Category.)
They say a picture is worth 1000 words… Here is our “Magnum Opus” from #CBConTour #GABF 2014:
Tickets for next year’s event go on sale July 29/30, 2015 (members pre-sale/general public). See you there?
And if you made it to GABF this year, we want to hear YOUR top beer picks, comments/recommendations for the event itself, the “outside-the-festival” events that you loved, and anything else we should know for a future #CBConTour visit!
