Great American Beer Fest Winners Available In South Florida

This past weekend was the Great American Beer Festival held every year in Denver, CO.  GABF is like mecca for beer enthusiasts.  With over 49,000 attendees, 455 breweries, and over 2,200 different beers to try you can see why.  I was unable to attend but you can check what my buddy over at Mikelovesbeer.com thought of the festivities.

The GABF is more than just a showcase for breweries it is also a competition.  3,594 beers were entered into the competition in 79 different categories so coming out with a medal is quite a feat.  Most of the winners this year called the west coast their home but luckily we have a few winning beer that you can try and judge for yourself if they are medal winning beers.
