Awesome Must-Go Event For Beer Lovers

5 stars
Chuckles5280 Colorado Convention Center, Denver

I attended the GABF in 2015 and had an amazing time! I came prepared with a pretzel necklace for mid festival snaking, which I think is important to enjoy as many beers as possible to help curb the intoxication. We also viewed the brewery list before and came up with a game plane for which breweries we had to see. You will never see this many breweries under one roof! Especially many breweries that do not distribute in Colorado or outside their own state. Have you heard of a great brewery whose brews you can get a hold of in you local beer store or pub? take a look, they'll probably be pouring fresh brews at this event! As a beer enthusiast, this is the best and quickest way to try as many breweries as you heart desires within your tolerance. If you love beer and have not been to this event, YOU HAVE TO GO AT LEAST ONCE IN YOUR LIFETIME!

Best and Biggest Beer Festival in the Country!

I've been to this beer festival 4 times over the last 12 years. If you're a craft beer lover, it just doesn't get any better than this...

Cool Event, Beware of Scalpers

This event is a great opportunity for beer lovers to sample hundreds of brews in one location. Many dress up in costumes, wear pretzel necklaces, and let loose. The party doesn't get out of control by any stretch, but you won't be bored. Woulda given it 5 stars if it weren't for the price, lack of music, and that it's impossible to get tickets with all the scalpers snatching them up. The scalpers have become a real problem over the last 2 years.

Getting tickets is as bad if not worse than any major sporting event. Beer Fest itself is great. Assuming you can get tickets, get in line early the day of Fest - at least an hour.
