The Great American Beer Festival started today. I’ve been following the ramp-up among the bloggers as they’ve been getting ready and traveling to it… this year likely would’ve been the year I’d have gone, had I not been affected by the economic downturn.
(Don’t worry, everything turned out fine—but you can’t leave when you’ve only had a job for a month or so.)
As of now the GABF is sold out and everyone is partying it up in Denver. Don’t worry, though, there’s plenty of virtual GABF going around:
- Photos realtime-ish on Flickr
- My Beer Pix (Sage and Molly) is planning a Live Video Beercast Friday and Saturday
- Beer Utopia is teaming up with Flying Dog to livecast Flying Dog’s FBAG party on Friday
I’ll be keeping an eye on the awards handed out, too—watching those Oregon brewers, natch.
