If you are traveling to Denver for GABF and looking for lodging deals, visit our Hotels page. We have worked with area hotels to secure special rates during the festival. Be sure to make your reservations early as Denver rooms are known to sell out due to the thousands of thirsty craft beer lovers in town for the festival.
Or, consider booking a hotel outside of downtown Denver. Public transportation in and around Denver is easy to navigate and very affordable. Visit our Public Transportation page, or your hotel can provide details on the best ways to get downtown.
We don’t want to sound like your mother, but please purchase your festival ticket prior to your airline ticket to Denver. Tickets will sell out in advance of the festival; don’t get caught without a ticket to the greatest festival in the country!
If you are traveling to GABF from out of the area, you might as well take advantage of the many spectacular places we are so lucky to have in Colorado—and, of course, you’ll want to keep craft beer as the focus of your trip, right?
Many festivalgoers will be staying a few extra days to visit breweries and brewpubs. There are several options within an hour’s drive of Denver. Visit CraftBeer.com’s Brewery Locator to find a list of Colorado breweries. Another great resource for all things craft beer in Colorado is the Colorado Brewers Guild. Looking for things to do in Denver? VISIT DENVER has great information to help plan a fun day.
If you’re ready to get outdoors and into the beautiful mountains of Colorado, visit national or state parks. The Colorado Tourism Office can help you plan a memorable trip.
