Beer Festival to open in Denver

The Great American Beer Festival, the nation's domestic beer festival, will open its doors to the public for the ninth year on Friday, November 2 and Saturday, November 3 at the Denver Merchandise Mart. The Association of Brewers, which includes amateur brewers and micro- and pubbrewers, sponsors and produces the Festival.

"We gather together beers from more than 100 American breweries to educate the public about beer appreciation and beer quality," said Charlie Papazian, president, Association of Brewers. "Festival-goers can really see the beauty of American beers."

Over 400 beers from 150 breweries are scheduled to be on hand for the two-day festival. More than 60 percent of these products have never been available in Colorado, with the majority coming from the fledging breweries rapidly changing the industry.

The Festival also includes a professional blind judging of all the beers by style. An international panel of 16 professional brewers will judge over 23 categories of beers - Imperial Stout, Munchner Helles, Bock, Continental Pilsener, Alt, and Fruit Ale, to name a few. Judges will evaluate beers and award medals on interpretation of style and quality of fermentation.
