AHHHHHH.....that time of year again. Great American Beer Festival was delicious as always. 450 breweries offering 2,200 beers to tase. I am glad I got 6.5 in on Friday, 5 in on Saturday, and 10 in on Sunday to burn off all the calories I consumed. I am a sucker for IPAs and Imperial IPAs. This year's big thing were BLACK IPAs........very tasty, many of them.
If anyone is in the Denver area, or plans to be, during mid Sept. to first week in October each year, the GABF is AWESOME and should be a bucket list event!!!! Best session is the Saturday afternoon session.....IMO. It is the "MEMBERS ONLY" tasting which is limited to Association of Brewers and the American Homebrewers Association members. This is the session when you get to hear awards announcements, talk to the brewers and industry experts, and NOT have to fight the huge crowds of Friday and Saturday NIGHT sessions.
Only 361 days left until the next one.........tick, tock.......tick, tock.......
✔ Think of setting 2013 goals.
Stop being a fat slob.
Run more miles than last year.
