The Great American Beer Festival® (GABF) is the largest and longest-running celebration of American brewing, and it celebrates its 34rd year in 2015, returning to Denver’s Colorado Convention Center. Some 800+ breweries are expected to present more than 4,000 beers to a crowd of 60,000 during the three-day salute to American brewing.

GABF gives your company exposure to the entire brewing community and those who love craft brewed beer. From the smallest brewpub to the largest brewery, from the novice attendee to the dedicated beer geek, thousands of beer lovers and homebrewers from around the world converge on Denver for three days of sampling the best beers in the U.S.

The festival draws a diverse crowd, with active, 21-45 year-old professionals as the largest demographic. The event is great fun—interactive booths are very popular and complement the many beer and related fun booths. Learn about event facts & figures, attendee demographic information and more!
