Ska Brewing True Blonde Dubbel

This awesome brew was being poured in the Farm to Table area at the 2010 Great American Beer Festival. A very tasty dubbel with a fun label and to be honest sometimes I visit their site just to listen to the tunes.

This Beer Lens wannabe was spotted at an Avery Brewery tasting at Euclid Hall, Denver on the afternoon before the first GABF session. The beer he's photographing is Quinquepartite, a barrel aged sour ale that was only made in small quantities.

Firestone Walker's Reserve Tasting

Volunteers pour a taste of Firestone Walker's Reserve for excited tasters at the 2010 Great American Beer Festival. A fantastic dark ale, smooth with chocolate hints. Only a few bottles were opened at a specific time during the festival, those at the end of the queue missed out!

Alchemist Brewery

Alchemist Pub & Brewery Ouroboros Double IPA. The beer from this brewery is usually draft only, but the brewer personally bottled a few specifically for the Media Luncheon at the 2010 GABF. I was lucky enough to attend and try this amazing brew, as well as hear the brewer speak about it. If you live in Vermont, go give this brewery a try!

Stone Sawyer's Triple is a golden, Belgian style ale named after the son of one of the brewery's employees. Sadly, the boy died of ALD (Adrenoleukodystrophy) shortly before the beer was due to be released. The aim of the beer is to spread an awareness of ALD and to help find and effective treatment. 100% of the sales of the beer are donated towards the fight against ALD.
