The Great American Beer Festival
Great American Beer Festival © 2007 Jason E. Kaplan
The logistics involved in this, the world's biggest gathering of varieties of the brown brew under one roof, are mind-boggling, but all go to prove that it is worth travelling to Denver in September! More than 330 breweries are represented and there are close on 1,500 brands of beer on offer on the festival floor. The accompanying brewers' competition draws around 2,000 entries. The beer swilling is accompanied by some great American blues and food and the event is lots of fun even for those who don't have much of an interest in the beer itself. Tickets are limited and the event tends to sell out so book early if you are planning to attend!
Venue: Colorado Convention Center
Date: 24 - 26 October 2015
