Less than two weeks to go until the Great American Beer Festival begins and the events are lining up. On nearly a daily basis invitations to tastings, receptions and interviews are rolling in. If you have ever wanted to see what goes on at GABF, but have been unable to attend, you can count on extensive coverage here and on my various social media accounts. Look for images via Instagram, live Facebook and Twitter posts, video reports and live, streaming video via the Periscope app.
Be sure to follow all of my social media accounts as I will be covering the GABF as well as the many satellite events that take place in and around Denver during that week. In case you do not already follow all of them, here is a list:
Keep an eye open over the next few weeks as I will add my itinerary for the festival and other events along with schedules for live streaming video via Periscope broadcast on Twitter. But, also watch for pop-up interviews via Periscope as I make connections with the movers and shakers at the event.
