The ABCs of the GABF

By Joseph Alton and Brian Kaufenberg

The Growler Magazine Visit the Great American Beer Festival 2013The 2013 Great American Beer Festival (GABF) wrapped up this weekend in Denver, CO. This annual celebration of suds has grown to host nearly 50,000 attendees who have an opportunity to sample more than 3,000 beers from over 600 American breweries. Beer lovers from around the country and the globe descended on Denver for what many consider an annual tradition.

The Growler headed to Denver to take part in the spectacle that is the GABF. We met folks that were attending every single session and people that traveled from far away with no intention of attending the actual festival at all. We met casual craft beer consumers and some serious beer snobs. There was one thing we all had in common: A love of beer.

The GABF can be an overwhelming endeavor, so we’re breaking it down to an elemental level. The ABCs of the GABF is our way of sharing with you the highlights of our palate-exhausting expedition to Denver’s one-of-a-kind beer fest.
