Wednesday morning, Sarah went to work and I got on a plane bound for Denver and the 25th Great American Beer Festival. Wednesday was a relatively quiet, calm-before-the-storm sort of day and apart from registering and checking into the hotel, not much on my plate apart from a few evening events. First up was a Belgian-style beer tasting held in a defrocked synagogue outside of downtown and then the Brewers Reception at Wynkoop. Then the rest of the night was at Falling Rock, unofficial HQ during festival week.
