Brewers and beer lovers from all 50 states are en route to the Mile High City this week for the Great American Beer Festival. Last year the Lone Star State captured an all-time best 15 Gold Medals. In 2015 Texas collected the fourth most medals of all the states behind California, Colorado, and Oregon. This year 48 Texan breweries will be participating in the premier American beer event.
96 beer styles will be flowing at this year’s Great American Beer Festival will feature . The beer list has not been released as of the Tuesday night, but will be updated shortly before the festival kicks off Thursday. If you are at the festival and need help finding some Texas brews you can download the GABF app. The festival runs Thursday through Saturday.
I was a little zealous with my predictions last year. I predicted 20 total medals for Texas breweries, and I am saying Texas reaches that lofty height in 2016.
