Episode 454.2 – GABF 2022 Part Two
For the 40th year of GABF – and the first festival in three years – we had to go bigger than ever, so much so that we couldn’t fit it into one episode. Even though Ryan stayed behind in Illinois, Craig succeeded in drinking all the beers Denver had to offer and bringing back some stellar interviews from some of his brewery highlights – along with an all-time bucket list guest. Even though we recorded this over two days and thousands of miles away, we manage to drink through some beers that have a GABF connection and give some one-sided reviews. For Part Two, Craig goes into his Saturday afternoon session experiences, and we discuss the highlights of this year’s awards. Check that guest list below!
