Recently, I got another reason to like Mr. Beer. Eric G, the brew master there, offered me an all-session pass to GABF this year. The only thing he asked in return was that I hang out in the Mr. Beer booth for awhile each session.
Of course I said "yes". I do not know the exact value of the 4 tickets, but it is over $200.
Well ... I have a bunch of pictures. No real commontary on the experience other than I drank a lot of nice beers.

|Mr. Beer Booth.|
|Why doesn't AB have any customers?|
|Blue Moon looked to be pretty popular|
|GCB: the 2nd largest brewery in Golden.|
I do have to say, the whole thing was awesome. It is a little overwhelming to have hundreds of breweries to choose from, but you just have to let yourself go with the flow.
I really enjoyed spending time in the Mr. Beer booth, too. I got some "inside scoop" from Peter (marketing guy at Mr. Beer) and Eric G. It was pretty cool to talk to people who either were already using Mr. Beer or interested in starting with Mr. Beer.
