FWIW, I just got back from Dry Dock Brewery. It is about 1/2 mile from my house so it's easy to swing by on the way in from work. The GABF was awesome this year.

Interesting that Colorado Brewing Co./Drafthouse in Boulder won a Silver for American Pale Ale. Never heard of the place.....I guess I've got a new bar to try out.

The DraftHouse's 44 Pale Ale was really good. Near them in the isle at the GABF was Colorado Boy which is out of Ridgeway and their Irish Red was great. I liked their IPA as well.

There were some very interesting beers this year. I tried to keep myself to just the Saisons, but my fave this year was the Cuvee De Fleurs from Shouthampton Publick House in Philly. Trinity in Colorado Springs was doing some interesting stuff. I'll have to revisit - by the time I got there I was 30 or 40 tastes in, so I was losing a little bit of my perception abilities.

A friend of mine, who also happens to own a very, very built FJ60, plus an FJ40 and FJ55 is the brewmaster for a brewery out of Minneapolis called Surley. They won an award for their coffee flavored beer at the Brewfest.

Surley is very good. I make sure to buy it every time we visit Kim's family in Minneapolis. The two flavors I've had were Furious and Bender. :beer: :drink:

We drank a bunch of Surley at 2009 BHCC, hauled down by Kramer. It was delicious.

Awesome! I have a shipment sent out every so often. It's been a while though so I think it's time.
