Great American Beer Festival announces 2015 ticket sale info; public on-sale July 29

gabf-media-wideDENVER – The Great American Beer Festival promises to be bigger, better and beerier than ever in 2015. With 90,000 additional square feet in the tasting hall, an anticipated 60,000 attendees will have the opportunity to sample some 3,500 beers from more than 800 breweries at the Great American Beer Festival – which takes place at the Colorado Convention Center in Denver Sept. 24-26. GABF brings together exceptional brewers and beer aficionados, showcasing a plethora of diverse beers from all corners of the country. Attendees relish in the opportunity to try the expansive assortment. Over the last three decades, GABF has grown to become the single largest ticketed beer festival and event with the largest selection of beers in the U.S. In conjunction with the GABF competition, the festival exposes attendees to the limitless diversity and outstanding quality the U.S. brewing industry has to offer and showcases why this country is the biggest beer destination on the planet.

New for 2015:

  • Expanded Festival Hall: With the addition of Hall B at the Colorado Convention Center, 90,000 more square feet will be added to the attendee experience, making for a BIGGER and BEERIER festival in 2015:
  • Increased Attendance: In past years, attendance was capped at 49,000 (cumulative for all sessions). This year, GABF will be able to welcome approximately 60,000 beer lovers.
  • More Breweries, More Beer: GABF will feature more than 800 breweries, serving up over 3,500 different beers for sampling.
  • Meet the Brewer: This year, the new expanded section of the festival hall will be home to the “Meet the Brewer” booths.  The breweries pouring in this section are committed to having brewers or brewery staff on hand the entire time, pouring at their booths and talking to attendees about their offerings, with no assistance from GABF volunteers.
