The 34th Annual Great American Beer Festival (GABF) returns on Thursday, September 24 through Saturday, September 26 to the Colorado Convention Center in Denver, CO. This year’s edition of GABF will feature a much larger space that will also bring in many more attendees. The convention hall floor will increase with an additional 90,000 square feet that will allow and an additional 11,000 attendees all vying for unlimited 1oz pours of beer from more than 800 brewers from all across the United States. In all GABF expects to see 60,000 attendees over the course of the weekend sampling over 3,500 different beers.

One of the new items to take place at GABF will be its Meet the Brewer. Part of the halls expansion will be home to its Meet the Brewer booths. The breweries pouring in this section are committed to having brewers or brewery staff on hand the entire time, pouring at their booths and talking to attendees about their offerings, with no assistance from GABF volunteers.
