Roundtable Discussion |GABF Game Plan
Great American Beer Festival takes place Oct. 2-4 at the Colorado Convention Center. Since that’s right around the corner, we asked our staff if they had a GABF game plan and what it was. Are they looking forward to sours, pumpkin, big beers or hoppy beers?
The “My GABF” app has added ‘First Draught’ to their style guides. Breweries new to the festival but not new to brewing. I thought that was a cool route to go to try a bunch of new stuff. I usually tend to go for the Aged beers though. Those are my jammy jam. Oh, and Monk’ed out, Abbey Dubbels. Gimme all of those.
I talk like a valley girl.
I’m going to be going for Sours, Barrel Aged Beers, passed out Pizza Hut by 9 p.m. amirite Will Dozier?
Imma get schwastty pants on cheap whiskey & maybe put on a disguise, then try to sneak into What The Funk put on by Crooked Stave.
I’ll let my dad lead the way. It’s his first beer fest. If you see a shorter, balder version of me, that’d be him.
I hope you both get to see Frank Thomas again!
I plan to focus on new breweries the first day, big/classic breweries the second day, and local breweries the third day.
Big Hurt Beer won’t be there this year. I’m crushed.
My new cover band is playing the opening instead of the bagpipes. We’re called ZZ Topper and we only play one song. “She Wore a Pretzel Necklace.”
It is wrong that I never make a game plan? I guess I like to look at it like going into a vast wildness waiting to be discovered. Whatever Im feeling like, I drink. I have discovered some amazing beers and breweries that way. Its more fun than hunting whalez.
My game plan is to live vicariously through my friends who are going since I now live in Oregon. I will most likely bust out some special beers from my cellar during that weekend to pretend I’m there!
I shall be following Cory Pelc around the whole time. Whatever he drinks is good enough for me.
