What's on Tap Radio took the show to the (GABF) 2018 Great American Beer Festival in Denver Colorado. The 3 day festival included over 4,000 beers from 800 plus breweries.
Amongst the beer there was a Silent Disco, a new Collaboration Beer Competition Booth and the two latest hangout spots – the Jameson Caskmates Barrel-Aged Beer Garden and the Buffalo Wild Wings Sports Bar. The weekend included visiting many breweries, parties and bottle shares.
A very popular GABF event is Paired. At PAIRED, exclusive beers are served alongside expertly prepared small bites from celebrated chefs. It is one of the hottest tickets of the weekend.
