Ryan’s favorite beers and a few festival notes from GABF 2014.
After three straight days of drinking at the Great American Beer Festival, we open a few beers in the hotel and play back a bunch of interviews with brewers that all won gold medals (in our hearts.)
So after drinking from noon to 10 PM Thursday, I naturally did the responsible thing on Friday. I kept drinking. With GABF starting at 6PM, I had the whole day to check out the city and the other beer events.
The Great American Beer Festival. GABF. Craft beer’s Mecca, Holy Grail, Citizen Kane – whichever superlative you wish. For three days every year, usually in October, craft beer creators, consumers and others interested descend upon Denver, Colorado to try and soak in as much beer as they humanly can.
