(The Center Square) - The country's largest ticketed beer festival has cancelled its in-person event this year, instead opting for an "immersive online experience" because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Great American Beer Festival, typically held at the Colorado Convention Center in Denver, was originally scheduled for Sept. 24-26 but will instead offer livestream experiences from Oct. 16-17, the Brewers Association said.
