Great American Beer Festival 2013: We’re on our way

Submitted by on October 8, 2013 – 6:13 pmNo Comment

GABF13_LOGOIt’s time to check another one off the Road Trips for Beer bucket list: a trip to the Great American Beer Festival in Denver.

I’ll be at three of the festival’s four sessions: Thursday night, Saturday afternoon and Saturday night, as well as some media events on Friday. I’ve downloaded the new GABF app to my smartphone. It looks like an essential tool for navigating the festival floor.

From what I understand, because it coincides with Denver Beer Week, there are events happening at pubs and breweries throughout town. Already, my calendar is filling up, but as of now, I have some open time on Friday evening. Any suggestions?

The Great American Beer Festival was founded in 1982, and has grown bigger and more diverse as has the U.S. craft beer industry. There will be more than 600 breweries serving more than 3,000 beers in the festival hall. That translates to more than 36,500 gallons poured one ounce at a time to its 49,000 attendees.

The festival sold out in 20 minutes this year, but a quick look at the Denver Craigslist shows quite a few tickets for sale, most at or near the original face value of $75.

Now I want to ask you something: What would you like to see covered here? There’s so much going on that I won’t be able to get to nearly all of it, but I’d like to supply the news and coverage that you desire.
