It was a perfect night for a beer festival #GABF - The 2012 Great American Beer Festival kicked off last night at 5:30pm to another sell-out crowd. Beer lovers got a chance to sample from over 2700 different beers from over 570+ different breweries. More than any other year before.
One thing that was evident this year was that there were a LOT more brewers in attendance helping to pour their own beers and chatting with the crowd. Fermentedly Challenged was on the scene last night and captured some of the essence of what took place in photos. The fans, the brewers, the booths, the costumes and the BEER!
The excitement was just as intense as all the other 30 Great American Beer Festivals had been. Plenty of beer, gadgets, gizmos, t-shirts, pretzel necklaces, costumes and good times were on hand. Mother Nature cooperated and made it the perfect early Fall evening. Check out the pictures below and see if you recognize any of these brewers, party goers or volunteers. (Sorry - no douchebags were included this time.)
