GABF is considered to be the most prestigious and coveted beer competition in America.

But GABF is just the tip of the beer iceberg that month in Denver – a city that brews more beer than any other. From October 4-12, the citywide suds celebration known as Denver Beer Fest, returns for its fifth year with more than 150 events, including Meet the Brewer Nights, an Oktoberfest celebration in lower downtown, beer-paired dinners, firkin nights, brewer versus brewer competitions and a whole lot more. If you love – or even just like – beer, Denver is the place to be this October. All events are listed at
