River North Brewery’s Special Releases for GABF

By Andy Sparhawk

River North Brewery just happens to be perfectly situated in Denver, Colo., which is set to become the heart of the craft beer universe from October 11-13 during the Great American Beer Festival (GABF). As the River North team prepares for their first GABF, and the influx of craft beer enthusiasts it’s sure to bring, they’ve recently released their tap room lineup for the week on the River North Brewery Blog.
