We are headed to Denver this week for the Great American Beer Festival! We See You Great American Beer Festival The festival kicks off with a pre-party for all brewers to come and meet each other and enjoy some beers from all around the United States.
Thursday is when the festival begins. We’ve entered 6 beers this year!
Albatross IPA – English IPA Category
Creekside Smoked Rye Pale Ale – Smoke Beer Category
Andale Pale Ale – Chili Beer Category
Out at Third Tripel – Belgian Tripel Category
It’s Cucumber Thyme Wheat – Field Beer Category
Thunder! – Pro/AM Competition with Lowcountry Libations homebrew club
Going to GABF for us is pretty awe inspiring. To meet and be next to brewers and breweries that we have idolized coming up through the ranks and see the creative juices that are flowing from their taps is truly amazing.
We learn and gain a lot of inspiration to take home and make great beer back for all of our fans in South Carolina. This year we hope that South Carolina beer will make its mark on the festival and take home a lot of medals.
Until recently there were just a handful of breweries in the state and few attended or entered the competition.
Just going to Colorado is an experience in itself. Not to mention the awesome breweries we’ll visit, the food culture rivals Charleston and the scenery is unlike any other. Plus with little to no humidity…we’re pretty pumped.
We couldn’t ask for a better work “vacation” and networking event. We look forward to the time to recharge and immerse ourselves in beer culture!
Stay tuned for a recap of our trip!
