A Few Interesting Exhibitors at GABF

Hop Candy

A Beer in the Hand is Worth Two of AnythingOne of the universe's most lingering mysteries involves two of my favorite ingredients. What do you get if you combine chocolate and hops? Now we know: you get Hopolates!

I have no earthly idea what these candies will taste like, but I hope to learn at GABF. Hop Candy Inc. well be selling their hop-infused chocolates at booth 123.

Unfortunately, Hop Candy's Website seems to be having a few issues, but you can find a review of the Hopolates here.

33 Beers

33 Beers may sound like a competitor to 37 Signals, but the 33 Beers apps run on paper instead of Ruby on Rails. Sorry, nerd humor.

Judging from their website, these guys make nice looking beer journals. The Moleskine of the beer world, perhaps. Each page has space for beer hipsters to record the vital statistics for a beer, including a cool flavor-profile wheel to rapidly record your impressions of the flavor.

I joke, 33 Beers won't turn you into a hipster. I hope. With more than 2,000 beers to try at GABF, taking notes is the only way to keep track of what you like. I expect to see many beer heads filling these out as they wander the floor of GABF.

Extra points to anyone who profiles the Hopolates in their 33 Beers.


Austin at the Great American Beer Festival

GABF Tasting GlassQuite a few Austin breweries plan to exhibit at the Great American Beer Festival:



Nine breweries! Austin must be the brewing capital of Texas. I look forward to getting a taste of Austin in Denver.


Beer for Boobs Brunch

Wit Mimosa

Did we scare off all the prudes? Good! Actually, there are probably fewer prudes in craft beer than there were zombies on the Titanic. But you never can be too careful.

I'll be attending the Beer for Boobs Brunch in Denver, Colorado on Friday September 17th at 10:30. That is a GABF day, so I bet we'll have a lot of crafties attending. The amazing Jennie will be there, and so will "cooler than a Antarctic cucumber in July" Taylor Shaw

Wouldn't Titanic be a better film if there were zombies?
