The Great American Beer Festival (GABF) is a three-day annual event hosted by the Brewers Association that is traditionally held at the end of September or the beginning of October in Denver, Colorado. The GABF brings a record number of beer connoisseurs from around the world to sample more than 1,600 different American beers. The GABF is deemed the ultimate event for tasting the beer√Ę‚?¨‚?Ęs of one of the globe√Ę‚?¨‚?Ęs greatest brewing nations.
The GABF hosts one of the world√Ę‚?¨‚?Ęs largest and most prestigious tasting competitions. Over 100 professional beer judges from the United States and abroad participate in the evaluations of one or more beer styles, ultimately judging 2,300 beers entered by more than 450 domestic breweries. Gold, silver and bronze medals in 69 beer-style categories are awarded, though not every medal is awarded in each category.
