Trends, Oddities, and Best Beers From the Great American Beer Festival
J Thoendell stashed this in Food
The Great American Beer Festival took over Denver this past weekend with 750 breweries in the Colorado Convention Center serving 3,800 beers (there were 6,647 beer entries from 1,552 breweries for the competition medals). Because of its sheer size, it’d be ludicrous to claim that you surveyed the whole fest — even if you logged full shifts at each of the four sessions. Nevertheless, I gave it a shot, and after a couple of Tylenol I bring you this wrap-up born of hazy iPhone notes. I don’t claim to have seen — or tasted — it all, but chances are you’ll want to try a few new brews.
