Beer Festivals Galore

After much extensive research that essentially involved writing to a couple of friends at breweries, I came up with what I think is a fairly extensive list of beer festivals for this summer. If I've missed any, let me know and I'll try to update this. But here's what I have so far:

*July 7, Colorado Brewers Rendevous, Salida Riverside Park, 1 to 5 p.m, 40 breweries, $20 for a glass and 12 beer tokens;
*July 21, Breckenridge Beer Fest, Main Street Station, Noon to 7 p.m., statewide breweries.
*Aug. 4-5, Bluegrass and Beer Festival, Keystone River Run Village, 1 to 5 p.m. both days, 30 breweries, $30 unlimited drinking.
*Aug. 5, Rocky Mountain Wine, Beer and Food Festival, Winter Park Resort, 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., $40 for food and beer.
*Aug. 11, Craft Lager Festival, Soda Springs Park in Manitou Springs, 1 to 6 p.m., 30 national breweries, $25 unlimited pours.
*Aug. 24, Art and Ale Festival, Wildlife Experience in Parker, 6 to 10 p.m., $35 for beer and food.
*Sept. 2, Gunnison BeerFest, Jorgensen Park, 5 to 10 p.m., $15. Runs with Taste of Gunnison.
*Sept. 9, Fall Festival of Beers and Chili Cook-Off, Mt. Crested Butte
*Sept. 15, Grand tasting that is part of Sept. 14-16 Telluride Blues and Brews Festival, Telluride Town Park, Noon to 3 p.m., 50 national breweries, $60 for Saturday pass.
*Sept. 22, Steamboat Brewers’ Festival, Torian Plum, Noon to 4 p.m., 30 breweries, $30 includes six 5-oz. tasting tokens

Ed I enjoyed reading your stuff in the GO! section today. Thanks for the info on the beer festivals. I have always had trouble finding all the festivals in Colorado. I read your blogs and see that you enjoy drinking Stone. Thought you might want to know that the seasonal Stone Vertical Epic for 2007 just came out. Make sure you get a couple of bottles. Good to have you back. Thanks again for the good info!
