Denver, known as the mile high city, is hosting The Great American Beer Festival (GABF), which claims to be America’s favourite beer festival. There are more than 100 brewers in the Denver area alone.

Great American Beer Festival Tickets

The organisers recommend buying tickets online beforehand due to the popularity of the event. Tickets cost $95 for each session ($85 for members), which includes a tasting cup, unlimited one ounce samples, a guide, an app and entrance to the entertainment, which includes karaoke, dancing and DJs. The event has added more space for this year and includes bar food and beer gardens.

You can find a list of all the participating breweries here.


There is also the option of membership of the Brewers Association and American Homebrewers Association (AHA), which for 2019 and onwards will allow you to have access to tickets earlier than non-members, get you access to an extra tasting event on the Saturday afternoon, allowing you to beat the crowds and also includes reduced prices when buying tickets.
