Great American Beer Festival® to host Russell Stover Chocolates’ GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS® celebration tour on September 21

The Great American Beer Festival (GABF®) is known for celebrating the art of craft beer and serving up creative culinary combinations with beer and food tastings at PAIRED. This year’s festival will offer a sweet surprise on Thursday as sponsor Russell Stover Chocolates stops by on a nationwide tour celebrating its 100th anniversary and GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS title for the Largest Box of Chocolates. 

On Thursday, September 21, ticketholders can celebrate the mouthwatering marvel, which measured 30 feet 4.5 inches wide by 15 feet 5 inches tall and held more than 5,000 lbs. of chocolate. Russell Stover Chocolates will provide free chocolate samples to festivalgoers while supplies last.

Beyond the record-breaking aspect, this exhibit at GABF highlights the innovation when brewers, chocolatiers, and foodies come together to celebrate their respective crafts. 

Whether you’re a beer aficionado or a chocolate lover, this year’s GABF promises an unforgettable experience that tantalizes the taste buds and showcases the sheer talent within the culinary world. GABF tickets are on sale now.
