I want to thank everyone for your comments and kind words it has been a great help.
What is the GABF all about? It is more than just the awards, and for those that won this year and in the past it is a grand accomplishment, each year the bar is set a little higher my hat is off to all of you. The Great AMERICAN Beer festival is a celebration of the best beer and brewers from the greatest country on the planet. I will see you there next year.
