Great American Beer Festival (Part I)

Normally, when I travel, I choose my destinations mainly for two reasons: hiking and craft beer. This year I am very excited to announce that I am going to go to the Great American Beer Festival. I wanted to go two years ago, but for economic reasons It wasn’t possible then, I decided to save money during the last two years to make it and this year will be my year, the 35th anniversary of the Great American Beer Festival will be in October and I have almost everything planned. In 2015, more that 750 breweries and over 3800 beers were at the Great American Beer Festival. How many can we taste there this year ?

How the festival works?

The Great Beer American Beer Festival runs for 3 days: Thursday, Friday and Saturday. One session per day with the exception of Saturday in which there are two sessions, the members session (members of the AHA or BA) and the public session. With your ticket you can taste all the beers that you want for free.

Good beers, education and events are waiting at this year event.


If you are a member of the AHA or BA you can buy the tickets the day before, if not, you have to wait until the next day to buy tickets when they go on general sale. Bear in mind that after one hour all the tickets were sold out last year

The tickets go on sale on 2nd of August for members and 3rd of August for the general public via Ticketmaster at 10:00 AM (MT or GMT-6).

Thursday (6th October): from 17:30 to 22:00 – $80
Friday (7th October): from 17:30 to 22:00 – $80
Saturday members only sessions (8th October):  from 12:00 to 16:00 – $65
Saturday (8th October):  from 17:30 to 22:00 – $80

If you are going to the members session on Saturday you will already know the price-winning best beers and you will have the chance to taste these beers first.

The Glass

1-ounce cups are provided and are made of Lexan, an odorless and tasteless plastic. Glass tasting glasses are given only at the Saturday members only session.

    Fantastic news! you’ll have a blast. just remember the altitude will affect how you process all that delicious beer. i’m a local (live about 20 minutes from downtown) and this will be my 16th year i’ve gone so if you have any questions or want any advice just let me know. I can also direct you to some amazing less known breweries around town as well. i’m @shamrockur on twitter
