Does anyone out there know why the GABF waits until Thursday to publish the actual beers at the festival?
I saw that the Colorado Beer Girl asked the same question on GABF: Why do you make us wait until the day OF for the beer list?!
One of the comments on the blog mention that there is a partial list at http://thefullpint.com/tag/gabf-2012-roundup/ This is nice, but I still don't know why the GABF makes us wait.
For some reason, the past few Mondays, someone has asked me how the Great American Beer Fest went. It is much later this year than it has been the past couple years, but still it seems odd that Denver area people are that confused as to when the GABF is.
Watch. Next Monday, no one will ask me.
Denver Beer Fest did start Friday and runs through GABF Saturday. Maybe that was the confusion today. If you are in Denver and don't get to go to GABF, follow that link and see what events you can take part in.
Last Friday, I tweeted out "Any brewery suggestions from mid-West or East coast I should try?"
I didn't get any tweet responses (probably because I forgot to tag it #GABF), but my tweet ended up on Facebook and some of my virtual friends gave me suggestions there.
My buddy Swen suggested Nashville breweries:
- Flat 12 Bierwerks ... A25
- Triton Brewing Co ... E28
- Sun King Brewing Company ... E35 (of course, I had already planned to visit them).
- New Glarus Brewing Company ... B28 (which is always a brewery everyone should try to visit when you get a chance)
- Three Floyds Brewing Co. ... E31
- New Holland Brewing Co. ... B27
I got a message from @PushEject (of Heretic Brewing and the Brewing Network fame) today, asking for permission to use one of the pictures from this blog. It was from 2011 #GABF Session 1. Of course I gave my permission. Not sure where or how, but he is using it for The Brewing Network. I feel honored that he asked.
Happy GABF Week everyone!
