This weekend, brewers and beer-drinkers alike make their annual migration to Denver for the granddaddy of all zymurgical events, the Great American Beer Festival.  The good folks at the Brewers Association have brought in 578 breweries and over 2,000 beers in 84 different categories for this truly epic event.

And I'll be in the thick of it, reporting back to you.

While I'm no novice to 100+ brewery fairs, this is my first of this particularly large rodeo, so I plan to make the most of my short time there.  Here are a few things on my to-do list:

I'll be tweeting out live updates from @dcbeer, instagramming (is that a verb yet?) from dcbeer, and posting at least a few roundup pieces here on the site as quickly as my beer-slowed fingers will allow.  Maybe a couple days or so.

Wish me luck, #DCBrews.
