Great American Beer Festival Tickets

The Great American Beer Festival also known as GABF is the world’s biggest annual three-day beer festival that was started in 1982 by Charlie Papazian. It is now held yearly by “Brewers Association” at Denver, Colorado. The visitors come from around the world to taste about 2,000 different kinds of American beer. Over 500 brewers participate in this beer contest, presenting round about 3,300 different styles of beer. The kinds of beer are judged by 100 judges from United States and around the world. There are 78 beer style categories. The awards are presented in the form of Gold, Silver and Bronze medals.

The very first Beer Festival in 1982 had 22 breweries, but the number just kept increasing by the passage of years. In 2004 there were 28,000 people present with about 398 breweries competing for about 201 medals. In 2009 the hall was extended massively and it equipped about 49,576 people, 495 Brewing companies and 2,100 different brand of beer competing.
The Great American Beer Festival gives the visitors a chance to experience the event by being a part of it all through volunteering! More than 3,200 people volunteer in the festival every year. In 2010 the volunteers worked for more than 52,000 hours! But all the hard work pays well in the end. The volunteers get opportunity of working as greeting attendees, pouring beer, helping with sustainability efforts and working on merchandise. Volunteers can sign up a form online to become a part of this annual mega event.
The Great American Beer Festival also presents the "Brewers Studio". It is a portion of the festival where various personalities get on stage and share with the public their innovative stories and beer. It is a place where many great brewing talents gather and where the stories of one of the world’s most creative craft of beer are told and brought to life. "Beer & Food Pavilion" is found in the mid section of the festival, where only 90 participants are allowed and the food testing is for the seated guests alone. In this area various expert chef’s get together and present different recipes of food paired with beer.
"You Be the Judge" is where you can sit with the festival judges and taste the beer and judge it yourself. This portion of the festival is on first-come, first-served bases. The participants need to buy a separate ticket before the judging starts and reserve their spot. There is a limit of 20 people in each session. "Silent Disco" is another unique event that takes place in the back hall of the festival. People grab a pair of headphones and dance to the music. The funny thing is that no one watching has any idea of what the dancers are dancing too. You like dancing or not, this is surely going to entertain you!
If you have just started home-brewing, here is your chance to learn how to make the experience better! With "American Homebrewers Association" present at the festival the visitors are given a chance to learn from brewers that have been brewing for ages.

For those that are "beer nerds" there is a "The Beer Enthusiastic Bookstore" in the festival too. The books can be signed by some of the craft brewing industries biggest names. Authors such as Ray Daniels, Stan Hieronymus and Randy Mosher are there to sign your books for you! Either you can bring your personal copy or buy one from right there, for yourself or for someone as a gift.
