Brewpubs Featured at Great American Beer Festival

Share Post

Brewpubs make up nearly half of the 2600 U.S. breweries. For the second year the Brewers Association highlights this segment of the craft brewing industry at the Great American Beer Festival (GABF). The Brewpub Pavilion features restaurant-style breweries from across the country, each offering up samples of their brews. 

Laughing Sun Brewing Company of Bismarck, North Dakota, which opened in November of 2012, is making its debut at the GABF this year and elected to participate in the Brewpub Pavilion.  

“It’s great that brewpubs are being featured [at the Great American Beer Festival]. They are playing a key role in the sustained double-digit growth in the craft beer scene,” says Mike Frohlich, co-owner and head brewer of Laughing Sun, about their decision to participate in the pavilion. “[Participating in the pavilion] is a great opportunity to showcase our beers in a setting that we’ve tried to create in our pub.”
