A Programming Note: Live Reports from the GABF

The 25th edition of the Great American Beer Festival kicks off in Denver two weeks from today and Lyke2Drink will be on hand to bring you all the excitement. From Sept. 27th to Oct. 1st we'll be blogging live from the Mile High City.

The GABF is heaven for lovers of American craft beer. The single largest collection of U.S. beers and breweries in any one place will be found at the Colorado Convention Center. It is truly a marathon for the taste buds spread across four sessions, plus special events around town.

We'll take you to the floor of the GABF to sample some of the 1,600 beers that are expected to be poured and visit some of the great brewpubs and beer bars around Denver. Lyke2Drink will also be attending a number industry events and parties, plus taking part in judging the Alpha King Challenge to determine the best hoppy beer in America. We even plan to take some time to catch the Colorado Rockies vs. the Los Angeles Dodgers, visit a local craft distillery, try some Colorado mead and see some sites around Denver.

If you are attending the GABF look for us. If you're not able to make the event, be sure to check out our daily reports.
