The annual tasting and competition, which takes place in Denver, Colo., boasts the largest collection of U.S. beer at any event of its kind. Founded in 1982 and growing every year since, GABF brings together brewers, their beers and the public for three days of camaraderie, lots and lots of tasting and some mighty fierce competition. GABF is so fantastic, in fact, that it’s landed on the list of “1,000 Places in the USA and Canada to See Before You Die.” With a reputation like that, you know we had a good time while we were there.
We won’t keep you in suspense any longer. The GABF 2014 Iron Hill winners are …
Iron Hill Media’s Bob (“The Medal Machine”) Barrar, with two medals: silver for Rye of Tiger in the Rye Beer Category and bronze for Burton IPA in English-style IPA Category
Iron Hill Voorhees’ Senior Head Brewer Kevin Walter and Lead Brewer Andrew “Ruby” Rubenstein, with a silver medal for Bedotter in the Belgian Style Tripel Category
Congratulations to the winners, to our Iron Hill family of brewers and to all who competed. We’ll be back for more next year, September 24-26, 2015. We’d love to see you all there, too, so save the date!
