Orlando Beer Guide was lucky enough to spend the past week in Colorado partaking in the festivities associated with the Great American Beer Festival. GABF is on the list of "The Top 100 things to do in America before you die". After attending 2 four hour sessions at the Denver Convention Center on Saturday afternoon , I have to agree with that list! Here are some of my highlights from Colorado and GABF...
My first thought upon arriving at the Festival was that it was the closet thing I had ever seen to a Disneyworld for beer enthusiasts! There were over 600 breweries and 3000 different beers available for sampling.
Florida was well represented at GABF!
This gentleman was sporting a sash of bottle openers. Just to be on the safe side!
A public service message from the X Communicated Mormon Drinking Team!
One ounce pours sneak up on you real quick when 600 breweries are pouring them!
Some of the best beers we tried were at the Pro-Am Competition table. Here, award winning homebrewers pair with craft breweries to brew a recipe created by the homebrewer. The gold medal was won by Jeff Gladish who designed the recipe for Poblano Wit which was brewed at Tampa's Cigar City Brewing!
Sierra Nevada's bicycle bar!
Oddly enough, there weren't huge lines to get a one ounce pour of Coors Light
"Liver Let Die" gets my vote for best beer name at GABF!
