I ask this question with great trepidation, because I really don’t want this to seem like a “brag, brag, brag, I’m going to the Great American Beer Festival!” It’s just that with 400 breweries and 1800 beers to choose from, it can get a bit overwhelming. Sure I have a few places I’m hitting come hell or high-water (Russian River, Lost Abbey, Alaskan, Firestone Walker, etc.) but I know there are a lot of places I won’t remember.
So, if you were visiting one of the biggest beer festivals in the world, what would be your must visit breweries? (I promise lots of photos and information what I get back.)
