    Never been to the GABF. But it's on my bucket list. What's the best part of being at the GABF?!!!

    Crossing it off the bucket list so you can finally go to other festivals that aren't ruined.

    It is literally a four day party, put on by the entire city of Denver, and Ft. Collins, and Boulder. A lot of great people, in a good mood, and enjoying the awesomeness that is Northern Colorado. Went for the first time this past GABF and I will try to make it every year from now on. You need to go.

    The anticipation of the whole festival in general...then walking up the stairway to beer heaven. The rest is history:)

    Massive amounts of beer. If you go, go with a few days to mess around Denver and boulder. The town is electric and epic beer is everywhere.

    Did you kick them in the kneecaps and get high fives by everyone else in attendances.

    I went as a vendor, two years ago. It was the best festival I have ever attended. There is nothing that comes close. It's usually Denver beer well too. Go! Get your tickets now and your room, yesterday!
    Cheers

    Very true. You will be overwhelmed. There it to much to do and to much to drink in such a short amount of time.

    The sheer number of beers and breweries at GABF is amazing, but I think the side events make it worth going.

    GABF blows every other fest out of the water... including but not limited to all the Alstom Bros events.
