Great American Beer Festival

I have shipped all the beer bottles needed for the judges to do their work and the festival kegs were dropped off some time ago.  Now it’s getting ready to fly out to Denver.  I leave tomorrow since I have been asked to judge again at this years GABF.  THe beers entered are some of my last brews for Vintage 50 and we have entered five beers; Catoctin Kolsch, 80 Shilling, Devils Due (Belgian Strong Golden), Wee Heavy (Strong Scotch Ale) and Molotov Hoptail (Double IPA).  Wish me luck! 

Tomorrow we have a judges meeting in the afternoon to go over procedures and receive our judge assignments.  Judging at GABF is tough work believe it or not.  There are over 3000 beers to be judged this year making it the largest competition ever.  There will be a morning session and an afternoon session for Wednesday and Thursday and then one morning session on Friday.  Last year I also judged the Alpha King Challenge but decided to enter Molotov Hoptail so I cannot be in on that one.

Looking forward to seeing some old friends in the brewing community and hopefully making some new ones.  Next year instead of V-50 it will be Mad Fox beers entered and I look forward to that.  I will be posting from GABF frequently so check back for more.  Gotta run, Cheers,  Bill
