Hopped Up :: Part 2

Hopped Up :: Experiencing the Great American Beer Festival

Part 2  |  room for everyone

Day 2 provides even more new beer experiences, starting our day at Wynkoop Brewing (and an awesome Gorgonzola Ale soup).  Back at the festival, we taste Sam Adams Utopias, Stone’s 11th Anniversary Ale, C.B. & Potts Dunkelstiltskin, Russian River Brewing’s Supplication and Beautification (sour Belgians), Great Divide, Imperial Hefeweizen from Pyramid Brewing, Raspberry Tart from New Glarus, Penn Brewing’s Oktoberfest, and much much more.

In addition, we sample the three finalists from Sam Adams’ Longshot homebrew competition and cast our votes, experience beers from the Pro-Am competition, re-live our college drinking days with a few swigs of cheap swill, watch a live performance by The Brewing Network, experience the aftermath of a Miller Chill tasting, and end the evening in the darkness of the porta-potties.

Music by Thomas Newman, The Ramones, and New Order.
