A mountain-town taste of the Great American Beer Festival

The crowds gathered early and the lines got long as beer lovers patiently waited for a taste of the 3,900 beers being poured at the Great American Beer Festival.

My mission was simple: taste beers from nine mountain-town breweries serving up their best suds at the Great American Beer Festival in Denver.

But with nearly 800 breweries from across the country pouring 3,900 different beers over three days, Oct. 6 to 8, it was easy to get distracted. But it was also more than easy to gather some tasty fodder for this installment of a Week in the Life … of beer. Cheers!
