The question was how many breweries poured at the first Great American Beer Festival in 1982. I ask because No. 32 looks to be poised for a Springsteen-like sellout time, and it’s already full brewery-wise.
Here are the vitals on the 1982 GABF: There were 47 beers available from 24 breweries at 22 different spots in the 5,000-square-foot ballroom of the Hilton Harvest House on 28th Street in Boulder, Colo. Got it? Good. Carry on.
