Getting Ready for the 2015 Great American Beer Festival

The Great American Beer Festival is the largest beer festival and competition in the country. Every year we are excited for the opportunity to participate in the brewing community as a whole. Often times, it is the only time a year that we get to see a lot of the brewers that we know. GABF is a good way for us to get our beer in front of a wide audience, and winning medals at the GABF is one of the highest awards a brewery can receive.   

In past GABF competitions our flagship Saison received a silver medal in 2011, and then a gold medal in 2012 for the French- and Belgian-style Saison category. Deceit received a gold medal in 2012 for the Belgian-Style Golden Strong ale category. A second gold medal gained us Best Small Brewing Company of the year in 2012. And last year (2014) our Raspberry Provincial won a gold medal for the Belgian-Style Fruit ale category.

This year we will be pouring all GABF medal winning beers at the booth, including Saison, Raspberry Provincial and Deceit. Our booth is located in the Meet the Brewer Pavilion, booth #W24.

Our taproom will be ready for you! To accommodate the extra beer tourism (estimated 60,000 people), we will be opening the taproom an hour earlier at 10am from Monday to Saturday. We will also be giving tours from 12pm-5pm every hour on the hour Monday through Saturday.

Stop by to taste our 2015 Oud Bruin. It will be available on draft and in bottles at the taproom.

If you are coming to town next year for GABF, make sure you drop your business card or e-mail to receive information about the secret tapping in our taproom during 2016 GABF.
