I have been told that the member session on Saturday is the ONLY one to go to. My best information (and I have relations living in the area who have been to GABF) is that the regular sessions have deteriorated.

(NB: I freely admit that this is strictly hearsay, never having been to GABF.)

Having been several times i would say that I prefer the Thursday night and Sat afternoon sessions. I have done the Sat sessions the last few years and that's probably what we'll do this year as well. I was a keg runner last year on Friday night...don't know if I'll do that again though.

I'm super jealous I can't go this year. I'm heading to Denver next month to visit friends but it's not the same. One beer I can recommend, if you're into it, is Copper Kettle's Mexican chocolate stout. It's usually a little pricey but it's damn good and has a running record of winning gold medals in the vegetable category (it's chocolate, chile and cinnamon). If you are a fan of chile beers, there are definitely plenty of chile beers made in Colorado that range from spicy to non-spicy. Good stuff.

You are going to have to be more specific than that. It is Idaho Springs.

Going to the members only session on Saturday, and then another session if my friends can sort their s out.

Definitely make sure to hit up all the local breweries in town, especially the smaller guys. Denver Beer Co, Strange, etc.

Man, do I love living in Denver
