Get Your GABF Shoes On
GABF is to beer, what SXSW is to music or what Mardi Gras is to frat boys.
Needless to say, we’ll have a lot of stuff going on all week. And even if you’re not able to make the pilgrimage to Denver for the festival, you can keep track of us from the comfort of your computer screen.
But, if you happen to be in Denver:
#1 Come by and do it up FBAG style: We have a feeling this will become an annual tradition. FBAG (stands for Flying Dog, Brats and Gonzo and just happens to be GABF spelled backwards) is our GABF Weekend kickoff. It will be your first shot at trying our new Wild Dog Series release, a smoked Double Schwarz (aptly called Dog Schwarz and we’ll also be sampling our new Canis Major Mixed 8-Pack of 7oz bottles!
Since this will be the first stop of the day for most people as they head over to GABF after the party, we’ll also have plenty of food on hand. We’ll be grilling Jim Lutz’s famous Gonzo Brats and pairing some of our other award-winning beers with food from our neighbors at Blake Street Tavern.
Jason and Todd Alstrom from Beer Advocate will be on hand as will the guys from Beer Utopia. Brant and Eric from Beer Utopia will actually be streaming all of the action on the internet (more details to come) and interviewing anyone who wants to get on camera and wax poetic on beer.
The party will be in our Denver Warehouse at 24th and Blake, just a couple blocks from Coors Field. The best part: the whole thing is FREE!
#2 We’re also co-hosting a Beer Dinner with DRAFT Magazine at Braun’s on Saturday Night. The event is sold out, but maybe you can bribe someone into hooking you up with a ticket.
#3 Most importantly, make sure you come by our booth and say hello!
If you’re not in Denver:

Log on to our Flickr page. Josh will also be roaming around Denver and the GABF itself taking photos to share with the world and make you wish you were here.
