The Great American Beer Festival is the premier U.S. beer festival and competition. Each year, GABF represents the largest collection of U.S. beer ever served, in a public tasting event plus a private competition. GABF brings together the brewers and diverse beers that make the U.S. the world’s greatest brewing nation. GABF was founded in 1982, and has been growing and evolving along with the American craft brewing industry ever since.
Members of the American Homebrewers Association (AHA) or Brewers Association (BA) are eligible for the member presale (7/30/19 at 10 AM MT). Anyone of legal drinking age is welcome to join at anytime; annual AHA memberships start at $38. AHA/BA members receive one unique presale code via email.
