Great American Beer Fest Weekend

Steph and I had 6 friends fly in for GABF. 

I picked up Scott and Diane Thursday morning, we decided to explore Denver. Great Divide had a LINE at 2PM on Thursday, I was shocked. It was almost all brewers from across the country.
We decided to go back to Fort Collins early and bike to a brewery near Steph's work. I think they were happy :)
Diane went with Steph to Loveland so Scott rode the cruiser home
Kevin and Dan @ Equinox. More breweries on  Friday, the guys all rented bikes (like mom and dad!) while the girls went for a hike.

Dan decided to rent this, we dubbed it the "rickshaw"
@Horse and Dragon. It was a really hard to ride. Probably weighed 75#
Lunch at my favorite BBQ joint, Hog Wild
Getting growlers at New Belgium for the BBQ. Kevin made us a feast when we got back, highlight was jumbo bacon wrapped scallops.
We were a little late to get in line, worst spot ever. Never again...
Happy Erik
Ruby and Jared
Misc beer?
Short's Brewery - I tried to stock up on the Michigan beers
Afterwards! Kevin, Dan, Ruby & Jared
16th street mall, love this picture. We don't know half the people haha

We got hotel rooms nearby the convention center and stayed the night. Jared had a suite so we hung out there to watch the MSU game and eat chinese food. We decided to stay in Denver Sunday and wait for the flights. Watched the Bronco's game at Lowry's Beer Garden (CC's old stomping ground) then took them to the airport. Great weekend, it was nice to have the time off to hang with everyone!
