    ACS at the Great American Beer Festival

    Each October, ACS samples a wide range of American artisan and specialty cheeses from our members at the Great American Beer Festival (GABF). Cheesemakers interested in participating by sending their cheeses for sampling may contact the ACS office at 720-328-2788 or info[at] to learn more.

    The 2013 GABF took place from October 10-12 at the Colorado Convention Center. ACS sampled 500 pounds of cheese to thousands of attendees over three days, introducing festival-goers to the incredible diversity and quality of American cheese. One attendee wrote after the event,

    “Even though I love beers, I love cheese even more. I was blown away at the variety and quality of cheese presented for tasting. In fact, I just ordered some of them online for shipment next week. Thanks for organizing this. From my point of view, it was fantastic!”

    If you sampled cheeses at the ACS booth at GABF and would like to share feedback with our team, send us email at info[at]

    We hope to see you next year! Save the dates: October 2-4, 2014.
