The Complete PorchDrinking 2022 GABF Week Events Guide

GABF External Events Guide

Part of the magic associated with the return of GABF involves all of the incredible beer events that take place outside of the actual festival. Although technically the Great American Beer Fest (GABF) begins on Thursday, October 6 and runs through Saturday, October 8, the festivities begin well before the main event and continue throughout the week.

From special tap takeovers to paired beer dinners, out-of-state bottle releases, and collaborations to full-fledged beer festivals, the beer world descends upon Denver in all of its glory. With over a week jam-packed full of events, it can be a bit hard to navigate. Luckily we’re here to help sort through it all with the return of our 2022 GABF Week Events Guide.

Barleywine:

“Praise be to Maris, we finally released a barleywine! Brewed back when we were still learning how to properly wear our masks, this went into Willett Rye barrels to rest until things looked a bit more rosey. Coming out, we blended the barrels that showed promise, oozing with classic barleywine rolos and raisenettes. That spirit character remained, and we enhanced the goodies by resting the beer on toasted coconut and a blend of selected vanilla. Decadent to the max, it’s the version of coconut cookie you wish you could buy from those scouts.”
