Beer Christmas in Colorado

Every year the Great American Beer Festival comes to Denver, CO. Don’t get me wrong, I love Christmas, but GABF week is almost better. It’s the best time to seel out those rare and hard to find craft beers that you can’t get anywhere unless you stalk forums, become best friends with managers at bottle shops, or trade with strangers on the internet. Tap and Handle, a local beer bar brought out some fancy stuff from Goose Island, Firestone Walker, New Belgium, Crooked Stave Artisans, and many more that I imbibed in. Hops n’ Pies in Denver had Barrel-Aged Abraxas from Perennial Artisan Ales, which is very sought out, and utterly Whale status (A whale is known to beer geeks to be an ultra rare beer).  My only suggestion is to not miss out. There are still some total whales hiding out there from GABF week.

  1. Beer Christmas sounds delicious! I used to work for a Beer Review company in SoCal called BierBuzz, but we never had Beer Christmas! I’ll definitely have to check it out this year to try out all the different kinds. Love the subtitle on your blog by the way. Pretty funny. Cool posts on beer reviews and information, I knew there was a lot going on with beer in FOCO but you seem to have a lot more info on everything. Definitely should get a beer sometime with Gus and the guys!
