Great American Beer Festival - Denver, Colorado


         At this year’s Great American Beer Festival (GABF) we spent time at the Saturday afternoon session enjoying a plethora of brews from around the United States. There were a lot of highlights - too many to drink!

         That said, we want to celebrate and bring attention to the winners from the Fort Collins and Northern Colorado area that won medals at this year’s GABF, and highly recommend visiting these spots when you can. Congratulations to all who won this year, thanks for representing Northern Colorado, and you’ll be seeing us and others hopefully sooner than later.
