The Great American Beer Festival (GABF) has, yet again, brought delicious beer and a wide variety of breweries to Colorado. Hosted in downtown Denver at the Convention Center, the GABF returns to Colorado each year in October. Offering nearly 3,500 different varities of beer, brewed by any of the 710 participating breweies, there is always the perfect pour for every tastebud in the arena. This year, to offer festival revelers a bit of variety, AVA hosts Great American Beer Festival Zip Liners!
On October 1, we picked up the GABF zip liners from the Convention Center in downtown Denver and shuttled them to our Cliffside Zipline course in Idaho Springs. After only a short 30 minute drive, GABF zippers got all suited up and headed out to try out our exciting new adventure course. After zipping through our 6 different zip lines and challenging themselves on our newly added elements, such as the free-fall, the GABF zippers were then shuttled to TommyKnocker Brewery for a special meal and more craft brew! In addition to the free beer provided by TricorBraun and Owens-Illinois Glass, GABF zippers were taken on a private brewery tour. Tons of fun and lots of memories were definitely made on this exciting day.
TommyKnocker Brewery partnered with AVA for this special event, in order to keep the GABF going, even outside of the convention center. This renowned local brewery and eatery offers a great variety of food and even more beer, from which to choose. If you’ve got children on board, don’t worry, as TommyKnockers also has some special sodas and a some menu items, just for the kids.
We look forward to next year’s event, not just for the beer, but for the fun and memorable times, as well.
