In each hour-long episode of Beer America we'll introduce one of the craft breweries that will be competing at the Great American Beer Festival in September 2012. These breweries will come in all shapes and sizes and from different regions across the United States. We'll explore the history behind each brewery and introduce the unique and outrageous characters that make up their brew crew. Each region of the country is unique, and because of that, their stories and the beer styles they create are vastly different. We'll see how these breweries got started, hear about their one of a kind specialty beers and highlight the cool ways they contributing to the growth of the communities they live in. We'll also witness each brewery creating the beer that just might be the next medal winner at the Great American Beer Festival in Denver this fall.
