A Brit’s view of GABF

November 8th, 2005 | Posted by Real Beer

British beer writer Ben McFarland tells his countrymen about the Great American Beer Festival in The Publican. He begins:

I’ve just returned from the Great American Beer Festival (GABF) in Denver, Colorado, where my flabber was well and truly gasted.

Later he writes:

While nearly all US craft beers can trace their origins to European roots, the artesian brewers currently transforming the landscape of US beer are crafting brews that are bigger, brasher and boast bigger balls than anything being produced in Europe.
