Photos: The drunkest drunks of a beer-soaked weekend

Denver's always a pretty beery town, but it got even beerier than usual this weekend with the unholy convergence of both Oktoberfest and The Great American Beer Festival. At any festival (or festivals) where the object of the game is to get as wasted as possible on one-ounce servings, there's bound to be those who play the game well -- and in the spirit of the Internet age, where every obnoxious thing anyone does is dutifully cataloged, we sent photog Teal Nipp down to capture the winners, so to speak, in all their obliterated glory.
