The Weekly Buzz | Post GABF 2017 Edition
I know I said that I wasn’t going to write about the Great American Beer Festival, but I am setting my grudge aside for the good of my dear readers! GABF 2017 wrapped up on Saturday night, and even though I was on the outside looking in, it seemed like a blast. We’ve collected tons of fun posts from this year’s festival, so prepare to live vicariously through your fellow beer nerds! This is The Weekly Buzz: GABF 2017 Edition!
A modest beer selection.

Did this happen to you?
Already had my first "Tweeted a personal thing from the work account" fuck up of #gabf2017 so at least that's out of the way.

Looks like it’s time to get out of Denver!
Dear Denver it has been an amazingly awesome good time. I believe I've even described you has "one Hell of a good time" more than once this week but 4 to 7 inches of snow? Don't go an screw this week up by becoming a stage 5 clinger b/c I will be going home! #gabf2017 #gabf
