Medals in Denver : GABF 2009

The 2009 Great American Beer Festival in Denver is now history, and in just a couple of hours, the last brews will be sampled and folks will be packing up and after-partying into the night. I've been to a few GABFs and they are great fun, both for the daytrips to nearby breweries and towns in Colorado, the excellent Mexican and Vietnamese food all over town, and the astonishingly friendly Colorado beer culture and overall cameraderie.

But I also love the voluminous list of winners (and seemingly tailor-made categories), especially the considerable success of Philly-area brewers, and the clever, even hilarious, beer names.

Wish I was there to celebrate with all of the Philly-area winners.
