The Great American Beer Festival is the premier beer festival and competition in the United States. Every year the Great American Beer Festival brings together the largest collection of U.S. beer ever served.
The event has both a public tasting event as well as a private competition. In addition to that, this event also brings together all the different brewers and their beers that make the United States one of the world’s greatest brewing nations.
Brewers from all over the United States come to this event to show off their beers and battle the competition for beer supremacy! The American Homebrewers Association (AHA) will be on-hand, allowing new and experienced homebrewers to connect to the national homebrewing community and all the resources homebrewers could possibly want.
The Brewpub Pavilion is located in the central area of the festival hall and features 36 breweries representing all regions of the country. This is a great way to celebrate the growing tradition of locally brewed beers along with the over 40% of the 3,000 U.S. breweries that are considered brewpubs!
The American Cheese Society (ACS) is the leading organization supporting the understanding, appreciation and promotion of American artisan, farmstead, and specialty cheeses. Each October the ACS organizes American Cheese Month, a nationwide celebration of America’s delicious and diverse cheeses along with the farmers, cheesemakers, retailers and chefs who bring them to you.
The Great American Beer Festival was founded in 1982 and has been growing right along with the American craft brewing industry ever since. This year’s event takes place at the Colorado Convention Center in Denver and runs from Thursday, September 24 until Saturday, September 26, 2015. If you want tickets well, you’re out of luck as the event sold out in only 2 hours of making tickets available!
