Behind the scenes with the Great American Beer Festival judges

By 12.11.12

Drinking isn’t all fun and games for the official judges of the Great American Beer Festival. Take a look and this behind the scene video, and then thank tiny baby Jesus that all you have to do pour it down your throat.

I think you all know this isn’t the way I operate. While I do my best to introduce you to new brews and give you insight into what they are like, Guyism isn’t the place to find grades, ranks, and in-depth analysis. We love good beer, but we like to drink it first and debate later. It’s nice to know there are people out there putting in the work so we can have the best guidelines for what to try though!

Jeremy Read over at Review Brews recently went to the NYC Craft Beer Fest – Winter Harvest. Take a look at how a beer lover spends the same time as these judges. I think we can all agree Jeremy’s method sounds more enjoyable. Forty-two new beers in one afternoon? Now that’s my definition of success.

About Colin Joliat... Colin Joliat is the 2nd best person to ever come from Flint, Michigan, behind only Andre "Bad Moon" Rison. He covers the food & alcohol industries with two parts information, one part comedy, and one part WTF is wrong with this guy. He's currently pretending people care about his new drunken venture, Boozist.
