Scott Witsoe of Wit's End Brewing Talks Asian Ingredients and the Leap From Home Brewing

This is the beeriest week of the year in Denver, and perhaps any city in the United States, with more than 700 breweries -- along with a horde of faithful fans -- descending on downtown for the 32nd annual Great American Beer Festival, beginning on October 2. The GABF is a great opportunity for this state's beer makers to put their best products in the national spotlight; more than 130 breweries from Colorado alone will be pouring ales and lagers. Tiny Wit's End Brewing -- which brews on a one-barrel system -- will be one of them, hoping for attention and maybe even medals for the five beers it will be serving.
