DENVER (CBS4) — The Great American Beer Festival opens its doors Thursday evening. The event at the Colorado Convention Center will feature more than 4,000 beers from over 800 breweries.

Over 60,000 people are expected to attend the festival.

It’s America’s largest beer festival and it’s even bigger this year than it was last year. This year’s event is 100,000 square feet larger.

GABF runs through Saturday and there are still tickets available for Thursday, starting at $85.
