Denver Beer Fest September 18th - 27th
« on: September 12, 2009, 02:33:04 PM »
Just incase the week of the GABF isn't enough for you, they extended it to 10 days and called it a beer fest.

http://www.denver.org/denverbeerfest/

Denver Beer Fest is a 10-day celebration of all things beer, including beer tastings at local Denver restaurants, beer-paired dinners, "meet the brewer" nights, beer tappings, Denver brewery tours and a variety of entertaining beer events throughout the Mile High City including Oktoberfest and the Great American Beer Festival!

Let's post our agendas so we can meet up.

Tolann, are you still coordinating something at Dry Dock on Friday?? 

my agenda so far for the week:

Tuesday - Falling Rock Tap House.  Hop Barley and the Alers club meeting. Details are sketchy.  I think it's from 7:00pm to 9:00.  I think Randy Mosher is the speaker.

Thursday - GABF followed by the World Brewers Forum.  Stop by and try some of my homebrew (American Amarillo Ale)
Session 1: Thursday, September 24 5:30 pm – 10:00 pm (I'm leaving around 8:30'ish)
WBF: The 15th Annual World Brewer's Forum™ (WBF™) themed "All American Brewing," will be held Thursday, Sept. 24th, 2009 at the Marriott City Center Hotel, 1701 California St.  8pm - Midnight.

Friday - 1:00 to 4:00 Rare Beer Tasting at the Wynkoop

followed by...?  Maybe a pubcrawl.  Who's game?

Saturday, September 26
GABF Members-Only 12:30 pm – 4:30 pm

Then I'm heading home to let my liver rest!

All I have planned is the Thursday Tasting

I'll be around the rest of the weekend but have nothing planned.

Standing in line always sucks!! 

Anyhow, this looks good for late night Friday.

10 pm Downstairs All About Beer, Dogfish Head & Others “Up Your Reinheitsgebot – an Evening of Impure & Illicit Beers” Taste Exotic beers from Dogfish Head, Avery Allagash & New Belgium that definitely plead the 5th on the German Purity Law of 1517.

I'm still interested in getting out to Dry Dock Brewing too - just not willing to drive there.  This is me trying to bum a ride...  :thumbup:

have a feeling, after looking at traffic today, leaving Broomfield around 5pm Thursday, checking into the hotel down there in Denver, and catching the shuttle to the convention center will put me there around 10am Friday. :mellow:

Only if we all agree to sample the Colt 45!!! Chug chug chug! :) I plan on parking at the hotel and getting close to the festival in time for the doors to open (5:30 if I remember).  I hope the special entrance is worth it!

We're sorry. Your call can not be completed as dialed. Please check the number and try again.

I missed you at the Boulder Strong Ale festival too.  Starting to wonder?!
