The Great American Beer Festival begins today. I’ve been here in Denver since Tuesday and spent all day yesterday judging. Today will be more of the same, but at 5:30 this afternoon, the first public session begins. Then there are all the side events. To say this is a busy week for me is to engage in gross understatement. In an effort to keep these pages from being blank the entire week, I’ll be posting photo galleries from previous events that I haven’t had a chance to post since I moved the Bulletin to its new home a few months ago (and yes, links will be coming back at some point, too).
This year, a little over 3,300 beers were entered in the competition (a 16% increase over last year) and there a record number of judges, too (129), to keep pace with the growing number of beers.
Below are photos from last year’s Great American Beer Festival.
