The Saturday night session of GABF always used to be the most crowded, most crazy night of the week, at least on the floor of the festival. With sold out crowds for every session, it’s no longer the most crowded, but it still retains the title of the craziest night. After a short break after the afternoon session, where the awards are handed out, the evening session begins right on time, at 5:30 p.m. Many brewery attendees don’t even go to the Saturday night session, because of its reputation, but I usually stay for as long as I can manage the crowds.
