As many any beer aficionado already knows, the Great American Beer Festival (GABF) is held in Denver, Colo. each October to great fanfare. This year’s version will be hosting over 560 breweries who will be serving over 2,700 beers. It also sold out nearly 50,000 tickets in less than 45 minutes smashing all previous sales records and once again proving the prestige associated with the festival.
Yesterday, Sept. 5, the folks at VISIT DENVER announced that, even though the GABF is sold out, you can still achieve “suds Nirvana,” through entering and winning the Ultimate Beer-cation Giveaway they are sponsoring. The giveaway will bring one winner and a friend to The Mile High City for a weekend of beer, fun, and friends. The prize includes two round trip plane tickets on Frontier Airlines, two GABF tickets, and two nights’ accommodations at Springhill Suites Denver Downtown.
The contest began yesterday, Sept. 5 and will run until midnight (MST) on Sunday September 16. The winner will be determined on Monday, Sept. 17.
