Well, the 2015 Great American Beer Festival is done and I’m looking forward to next year already. The Brewers Association promised it to be “Bigger, Better, Beerier” and it truly was.
The addition of the “Meet the Brewer” section was incredible, offering the ability to talk to a brewery representative at any time. Paired was an excellent way to try amazing area restaurants paired with breweries from all over the country.
Awards wise, a staggering 31 breweries won 36 medals in the competition, keeping Colorado right up there as one of the strongest brewery markets.
It was awesome to see Trinity Brewing win a very greatly deserved silver for Red Swingline, but other than that and Bristol (Pikes Peak and Paradox too) pouring on the floor, our budding beer scene was absent.
Alright, on to what you’re here for – pretty pictures.
Here’s our photos from Friday and Saturday’s sessions:
