IF YOU haven't gotten your tix yet for October's Great American Beer Festival, in Denver, too late. The world's largest beer-judging event is sold out. But here's an insider's tip that will give you a taste of some of the champions: The last week of August is when local breweries deliver their bottles to Colorado for the medal competition. That means that specialties brewed especially for the event - the very best of their portfolios - go on tap locally over Labor Day weekend. Which means that, come October, when you hear that a local brewpub like Stewart's, in Bear, Del., or Round Guys, in Lansdale, has won a gold medal, you'll be kicking yourself if you don't get out there and taste 'em this weekend.
