GABF 2013 – Falling Rock Taphouse Event Listings
One of The Full Pint’s favorite places to stomp around during GABF week is Falling Rock Taphouse in Denver, CO. It may be a little crowded, and some folks may be going crazy over their rare tappings, it’s still a fun place to go an socialize with a beer in between all the socializing with beer. Hope to see you there, in a haze. Cheers.
Here’s what you’ve been waiting for… at least some of it. Chris has been working hard since the beginning of the year (heck some of these were in place Saturday at GABF last year!) figuring out breweries and beers for the Week. He’s ready to start sharing some of that info.
Monday, October 7 – 5:30 pm Falling Rock Tap House Annual GABF Tapping Party
What better way to kick off GABF week than by enjoying the beers Chris pulls from his cellar and has been saving just for this little (ha!) party? He hasn’t even told his brothers what all he’s putting on tap for this one, so there aren’t many details yet.
