Important News Re: Great American Beer Festival – GABF – What’s Going On This Year?

great american beer festival

From the Brewer’s Association:

Let’s Come Together for a Totally New Kind of #GABF

By now you’ve probably heard the news. We won’t be able to gather in person in Denver this fall and celebrate the wonderful world of craft beer together.
Here’s What We’re Gonna Do

We couldn’t possibly miss a year of bringing our community together, so this year, we’re not only going to meet in spirit, but virtually and locally as we bring the Great American Beer Festival (GABF) to you through a nationwide “passport” program.
Between October 1-18, Great American Beer Festival passport holders will have exclusive access to beery deals at participating festival breweries nationwide, and access to online content during the virtual festival October 16-17.

Join the American Homebrewers Association (AHA) and save $5 on the tee + passport combo. Find your promo code in your AHA account after you join.
Offer valid through July 10.


If you’re not a member of the American Homebrewer’s Association, I think you should consider joining – Here’s Why.  Membership in the AHA has many benefits including pre-sale access to Great American Beer Festival tickets.  GABF tickets regularly sell out and usually quickly.  Pre-Sale access is a big benefit and helps you increase your chances of getting into the festival.  Join or renew your AHA Membership

beer service mastery


From Homebrew Academy:

What is Beer Service Mastery?

A complete Cicerone’s Study guide.

Josh is a Certified Cicerone, BJCP Grand Master Beer Judge, consultant to Award-Winning Breweries, and has earned medals himself in every BJCP category. Every. Single. One.

Who better to learn the skills you need to pass that exam from? I can’t think of anyone else.

You are not going to want to miss this. This course is packed with exactly what you need to know to confidently pass that exam.

How do you get experience to pass an exam, if you need to pass it to get experience? This is how. Training from a long time, knowledgeable professional in the space. And at an extreme early-bird discount too.

After we add additional training based on the feedback from the early bird course grads (like you?) – the price will go up. So this will be the absolute lowest price on this great training from none other than Josh Weikert.

All designed to help you ace that serving course the first time. And, of course, you’ll get access to any new information that we add, for life
