But there's much more to GABF than meets the eye. There are literally a hundred-plus events happening around Denver that supplement the festivities. Some of them are rare beer tappings, or beers that aren't normally available to Colorado and other markets. Some are fundraisers, some are big cook-outs, some you can meet the brewers, etc. etc. etc. We went to a number of these events. In many ways we enjoyed these as much as the big event itself because they were slightly quieter and slower and that's just what we needed. So this post really is a look at the party Around GABF rather than a look At GABF.

Here's a nice picture of New Belgium with this large ass limo parked out front. We thought this was a funny juxtaposition of a thoroughly environmentally conscious business and a Don't-Care attitude of one of the guests.

Another GABF has come and gone. What a beautiful and also taxing week! Looking forward to the next one, although I'll probably slow down even more for that one.
