Beer Fest 2011: 2,400 Ounces to Freedom

It hasn't snowed much yet so we went to the Great American Beer Festival. It was a blast. Here's what we saw.

Beer and skiing pair like Marky Mark and the Funky Bunch. So when a few of us at Skiing Magazine got the opportunity to check out the mother of all beer gatherings we took full advantage.

This is a recap of our adventure at the Great American Beer Festival in Denver, Colorado. This winter, be sure to tip a pint of something local as you traverse ski country because, from left coast to right, American craft brewers are concocting some delicious beverages.

Special thanks to the Brewers Association.

Beer Test Video

We've got an all-encompassing mountain microbrew finder coming your way on Skiing Interactive. Check out this video from our beer test, and see the great lengths we went to to fully understand ski town beers.


Cheers to Beer

It should come as no surprise that ski hills are home to some of the best beer festivals in the country. Mark these on your calendar and grab your stein.
