WA Breweries at GABF: Big Time Brewery, American Brewing, & Chuckanut Brewing

September 2nd, 2011 · No Comments · Events, Washington Breweries

On September 29, the 30th annual Great American Beer Festival will kick off in Denver, CO. Around 49,000 attendees are expected (it sold out in a week) and 465 breweries will be on hand to pour more than 2,400 beers. If you haven’t been, the festival is a must at some point in your life for anyone who calls themselves a beer drinker. There are two parts to the festival: the country’s most-respected private judging and awards recognition for beer, and then the festival for the public.

Of the 465 breweries on hand, 28 of them will be representing Washington. As a preview for those going and as a guide to who might be up for awards this year, I’ll be posting as much GABF beer info as I can get from WA breweries over the next couple weeks.

Also, according to Mari Kemper:

We have actually been asked by the GABF to be one of the highlighted beers at the prestigious credentialed Journalist luncheon. A very limited amount of journalist are invited to this 4 course paired food to beer luncheon. I sent them several of our beer dinner menus we have prepared here at Chuckanut and they chose to make the roasted beet, green apple, and chevre salad served with our Vienna Lager. As there are only 8 beers served during this luncheon it’s very special that they chose Chuckanut Vienna as one of the 8.
