The Colorado Brewers Guild has announced Hop the Vote to debut at this year’s Great American Beer Festival (GABF). The program will pit Colorado’s State Senators against Colorado’s House Representatives in a showdown to see who can make the best beer. The Senators created their beer yesterday under the watchful eyes of Dry Dock Brewing, while the House members will create their beer on Friday with the team at Denver Beer Co.
In just a few weeks, GABF attendees will have the opportunity to meet the teams, sample the beers and vote for their favorite over the course of the 3-day festival. We’ve sent Greg out to attend both brew session and interview the teams, so stop back soon for additional details.
