After a very long day of travel we finally arrived in Denver.  The energy here is through the roof.  We started our adventure at the Wynkoop Brewing Company, where the GABF hosted a Welcome Gathering for Brewers.  We enjoyed wall to wall beer and food.  We had a chance to sample some great beers like:

The Bruery – Cuvee Jeune – Young Lambic

Dry Dock Brewing Co. – Brett-Soured Belgian Golden Aged in Oak – On Firkin

Redstone Meadery/New Belgium Brewing Co. – Black Folie – La Folllie Sour Brown mixed with Black Raspberry Mead

Cambridge Brewing Company – YouEnjoyMyStout – Barrel-Aged Imperial Stout

Mountain Sun Pub and Brewery – Nihilist – Cabernet Aged Imperial Stout

Kona Brewing Company – Coco Loco – Coconut Brown Nut

Deschutes Brewery – Portland Fresh Hop – Fresh Hop Beer

Snake River Brewing – OB-1 -Organic Brown Ale

Our favorite was the Black Folie made by Redstone Meadery/New Belgium Brewing Co.  On our way out the door we were handed a can of Wynkoop Brewing Company’s own Rail Yard.  With our can of Rail Yard we walked to the famous Falling Rocks Tap Room and enjoyed a few more pints, ending our evening with a La Biere des Collines Hercule Stout, soooo good. 

Enjoy this down and dirty (unedited) “Flip” video of our first day in Denver at the GABF and stay tuned for more “Flip” coverage over the next few days.    Of course, we will have more of our real videos and some great tours and interviews in the next few weeks.   Cheers!

    Hey guys, it was great running into you at the Falling Rock Wed night and actually getting the chance to meet you. The Falling Rock is a great place, but its always way too packed during the GABF. See ya next year!

    I have been browsing online more than 4 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours.
    It’s pretty worth enough for me. Personally, if all website owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the net will be a lot more useful than ever before.
