Great American Beer Festival time again

For many brewers the GABF incapsulates the brewing year. Everything you work for during that year comes home to roost so to speak. Sure it's a great time to network with you colleagues but really it's about your beer(s) up against others beer(s) and how they all get judged by your 'peers'.

This will be FiftyFifty's second time at the GABF and we have a bit more time under our belt as well. We've entered 11 beers, mostly our best work to date.

They are:

Manifesto Pale Ale --- American Amber Ale category
Rockslide IPA --- American IPA category
Donner Party Porter --- Other Strong Ale or Lager
Imperial Stout --- Other Strong Ale or Lager
Trifecta Tripel --- Honey Beer
Brothers Beer --- Belgian and French Style Ale
Collaborative Evil --- Specialty Beer
Foggy Goggle --- Belgian and French Style Ale
BART --- Wood and Barrel Aged Dark Beer
Train Wreck of Flavor --- Wood and Barrel Aged Dark Beer
Cuvee De not Brewed in San Diego --- Wood and Barrel Aged Strong Beer

Luck or a craps shoot I'm not sure but I feel good about our beers this year. I'll chime in a time or two to let you know what's up in Denver.
