    The Great American Beer Festival is considered to be the most prestigious and coveted beer competition in America – one eBay hopeful even tried to sell his $65 ticket for a whopping $50,000. It is the world's largest beer celebration with a Guinness World Record for the most beers ever made available for tasting at a single event – some 2,375 different American brews from 500 breweries last year. As impressive as those numbers may be, they pale in comparison to this year, as the 2012 GABF will have an astounding 580 breweries, 114 more than in 2011. Officials estimate there will be 2,700 different beers available over the weekend.

    Denver brews more beer than any other city in the nation. From Oct. 5-13, the citywide suds celebration known as Denver Beer Fest will return for its fourth year, with Meet the Brewer Nights, beer-paired dinners, firkin nights, brewer versus brewer competitions and the first-ever Denver Beer Fest-official Denver Beer Crawl. All events will be listed at The event was created by VISIT DENVER, The Convention & Visitors Bureau, to offer more beer events around GABF, and also give local breweries an opportunity to showcase their products to the 50,000 beer lovers who attend the granddaddy of beer festivals, as well as Denver locals who can't make GABF 2012.

    Denver Beer Fest is presented by VISIT DENVER, in partnership with the Colorado Brewers Guild and Denver Westword. This year's sponsors include Boelter, the Downtown Denver Business Improvement District (BID), Denver Yellow Cab, Frontier Airlines and RTD-Denver. Visit for more information.
