It’s almost that time again when hordes of beer-loving fans descend on the Colorado Convention Center located in Downtown Denver. The Big Blue Beer will have a bird’s eye view on all of the beer drinking shenanigans that will ensue. We love to have fun in Dtown!

I decided to enlist the aid of a couple of friends who love beer and have attended the festival. I learned a lot about how the Great American Beer Festival runs and believe this episode will be super helpful to you!
