Tomorrow I am off to Denver for the Great American Beer Festival. After a little fiasco with our member numbers, tickets were ordered and we had to wait. The day has come and I can’t wait! I just wanted to share some of the breweries I am excited to see tomorrow.
If you are unfamiliar with the festival, search your social media for #GABF or visit greatamericanbeerfestival.com to join in on the fun!
First up on the list is Cigar City! I had the opportunity to visit this brewery when we were visiting family! I’ve come a long way in beer drinking since then so I am excited to see how this beer dances on my taste buds this time around!
3 Floyds is one of those breweries that keeps coming up in conversation. While I am not a stout fan, I want to try the beer so that I can check this unique brewery off my list!
Riff Raff is in Pagosa Springs and we drove by it on our way home from Durango last month. While I wanted to stop, I had so much beer that weekend that I knew it was time to stop. if I didn’t stop, I wasn’t sure I would like beer (or myself) anymore… That means I owe them a pour or two on Saturday with fresher taste buds.
I’ve tried a few bottles from Anchor but I am excited to get a draft taste. No other reason than trying something that I know won’t disappoint.
And finally, Lagunitas! This was my favorite stop in California last year and we can only get a limited few in Colorado. Hopefully they will be pouring some new and interesting beers to try out!
And finally, a little sidebar. While scoping out the list for the festival this year I made a terrifying discovery. There are no Iowa breweries listed. I have visited several tasty places and I know that many more have opened since my last visit. I know that craft beer is popping up all over the country and to not see any Iowa breweries made me a little sad. No home state pride this weekend…
Is there something I missed? Let me know where else I should be stopping tomorrow for a 1 ounce taste!
