2023 GABF Guided Routes | Spontaneous / Wild / Sour / Saisons to Try at GABF

The Great American Beer Festival is finally back! With the insane multitude of beers being served on the festival floor, it can sometimes feel a bit overwhelming. So PorchDrinking is once again here to help you navigate that lineup and help with planning your route at the fest. As part of that research, we’ve sifted through every beer pouring at this year’s fest to curate a series of themed routes to help you plan for your GABF based on various styles and flavors.

This year’s brightest producers of spontaneous, wild, sour beers, and saisons include Crooked Stave, Our Mutual Friend Brewing, Perennial, Russian River, The Bruery, and The Lost Abbey to name a few. A few things to note, don’t sleep on some absolute bangers being poured in the United in Beer (State Guild), Heavy Medal, and Collab/Pro-Am sections, as there are beers/breweries that aren’t available anywhere else at the fest including some super hype breweries. Now we invite you to check out some of the can’t miss spontaneous, wild, mixed-culture, sour beers and Saisons pouring at this year’s fest.
