Next week tickets will go on sale for the 2015 Great American Beer Festival (GABF). We’ve told you before about this incredible annual festival, and how every craft beer fan should make attending GABF a part of their beer bucket list. In case you are still on the fence, we wanted to share new details released by the GABF that highlights how this year’s festival will be an even greater Great American Beer Festival. This year’s festival may even be the greatest Great American Beer Festival yet. That’s pretty damn great.
The 2015 GABF promises to be…
The 34th annual GABF has expanded their festival hall, adding 90,000 additional square feet to their usual attendee space in the Colorado Convention Center.
This year, GABF will welcome approximately 60,000 beer lovers (cumulative for all sessions) compared to the 49,000 attendees in previous years.
The 2015 GABF will feature more than 800 breweries serving up over 3500 different beers for sampling.
This year the new expanded section of the festival hall will feature “Meet the Brewer” booths. The breweries pouring in this section have committed to having brewers or brewery staff on hand the entire time, pouring your samples and talking to attendees about their offerings, with no assistance from GABF volunteers.
