Coming to you from sunny but chilly Denver, Colorado at the Great American Beer Festival! The entire show looks awesome with not only a room full of the greatest craft brewers on the planet, but lots of activities, open houses and parties.

Our booth location could not be better. As the guests come in the main entrance, we have the first tasting booth. Each booth is about 10×10. At the back, we found kegs of our 5 beers tapped and iced down (The Wit, Pale, IPA, Pecan Porter and the One), ready for all the thirsty beer enthusiast to taste. We are in the “Southwest” area so we are surrounded by brewers from our area of the country.

Roaming the hall is amazing. I have been to a lot of conferences (mostly corporate trade shows) and this is the largest show I have been too. Over 500 brewers here with over 2100 beers to sample. Obviously, more than any one person can taste, if you do the math, but many will try.

Here is a little video from the first day. Hope you like it!
