Great American Beer Festival 2024: The number 1 Event In The USA For Beer Aficionados

Welcome to the Great American Beer Festival, the granddaddy of all beer events and the number one destination for beer fans and sommeliers. Considered one of the 10 best drinking festivals in the world, the annual three-day event invites visitors from all corners of the globe to try thousands of American craft beer varieties in the biggest collection of beer ever served in the United States.

The beers are judged by hundreds of beer sommeliers, who evaluate the beers from over 100 categories. No other event brings such a massive number of world-class brewers together, showcasing a terrific diversity of craft beers in a fun and lively atmosphere.

‘The Great American Beer Festival has been listed as one of the 1,000 places to visit in the US before you die, and it’s no surprise why.’

Aside from more beer tastings than you can handle, there will also be food pairings, beer dinners, and after-parties to look forward to. There are various sessions carefully prepared for beer geeks throughout the weekend, so make sure to check out the website to find out which ones you’ll be attending.

Rub elbows with renowned beer sommeliers, learn a thing or two about your favorite libation, and maybe get inspired to start your own brewery. For all these reasons and more, the Great American Beer Festival is the ultimate event for beer geeks.
