Save the Date!!

It’s already time to start thinking about the 2016 ACBF. I know, such a chore.

This is our 10th anniversary, so it will be extra special. We expect at least 80 Colorado brewers to participate. We will redesign our layout to accommodate the extra brewers.

The location will be the same as last year: 3650 North Nevada Avenue at the Mortgage Solutions Financial Expo Center. The afternoon session will begin at 1:00 PM. The evening session will begin at 6:30 PM. Early Entry tickets will get you access an hour earlier. We will also sell a limited number of Brewer Insider tickets that get you access to the brewers’ lounge and a ticket for a free lunch or dinner. Tickets are scheduled to go on sale Tuesday, September 6th.

Stay tuned for more details!

Time for Another “Where Am I?”

I can’t seem to find anything to stump you!

Here’s your #6 “Where Am I?”

This brewpub has a great food in addition to their award-winning brews.

HINT: OK! I guess I finally stumped you. So, the blue part of the Colorado flag is made up of beer bottle caps from this brewer. Their amber has won ACBF, World Beer Cup, and GABF medals.

Whoever correctly identifies the brewery first (based on the date/time stamp of your response below) will receive two GA tickets to the session of your choice. Fill out the entry form below.

We will notify the winner as soon as we receive a correct answer and post the correct answer on the website and Facebook page.

“Where Am I?” #5

I hope I found a way to make this tougher!

Where Am I?

OK, so much for making this tougher. We already have a winner. Bill T. correctly identified the brewpub as Suds Brothers in Fruita, Colorado.

Time for “Where Am I?” #4

I’ve got to find a way to make this tougher! Maybe I’ll just take a picture of a crack in the floor!

Here’s your #4 “Where Am I?”

Where Am I?

Amazing! We already have a winner. Patricia P. correctly identified this as Pikes Peak Brewing. I know most of you have visited Chris Wright at Pikes Peak, but if you haven’t, you need to make the trip to Monument. Have a glass of the delicious Devils’ Head Red! Super!

Where Am I This Time? #3

OK, the last “Where am I?” challenge was just too easy. I’m not sure you will find this one much tougher, but here you go.

Whoever correctly identifies the brewery first (based on the date/time stamp of your response) will receive two GA tickets to the session of your choice. Fill out the entry form below. We will notify the winner as soon as we receive a correct answer and post the correct answer on the website and Facebook page.

Where Am I?

Ridiculous!! You are just way too good at this. I posted the picture at 9:01 AM. I got the first correct answer – Paradox – at 9:03 AM. Paradox is one of the best breweries in our area. Their new tasting room in Divide is perfect for a Saturday or Sunday afternoon. The view is spectacular and, of course, the beer is wonderful!

Where Am I #2

After a quick winner on our first “Where Am I?” challenge, I’m afraid this one will be way too easy. On our first contest, Riff Raff Brewing in Pagosa Springs was the correct answer. Many of you may know Riff Raff, but how many of you have ever visited their wonderful tasting room for a flight?

OK. So, here is another challenge. This brewer won a bronze medal for one of their beers and their servers wear shirts with a bold claim!

Where Am I?

Well, we have a winner! Yes, that is Peaks and Pines Brewery right here in Colorado Springs. I said it was an easy one. Peaks and Pines won their bronze medal even before they opened their doors to the public. I’m sure many of you have sampled their great lineup of beers. If not, be sure to visit them soon!

Quiz #3 sometime next week! Stay tuned.

Fun and FREE Tickets

This year we wanted to have some fun and give away some tickets to the All Colorado Beer Festival.

The game is “Where Am I?”

Each week we will post (on the website home page and on our Facebook page) a picture or two taken at a Colorado brewery. You job will be to guess which brewery is in the picture. The picture will be unique to that brewery, but not too obvious. Here’s a sample:

Keep your eye on the website and Facebook page. More brewery locations and chances to win will be coming soon.

New Distiller and Restaurants

We just added another distiller to the lineup for Saturday. Marble Distilling from Carbondale will be providing  a Marble Vodka, Midnight EXpresso Coffee Liqueur and the Gingercello Liqueur. The Marble Vodka is made with an original blend of all natural Colorado grains. Wheat and malted barley is distilled five times in an old fashioned copper pot still to ensure purity and clarity. It is the only vodka filtered through crushed Yule marble giving it a soft, creamy nose with a smooth, luxurious finish to create a unique Colorado vodka. The Gingercello is a tribute to springtime and a modern adaptation of the Italian classic. Marble uses fresh cut ginger and the sweetest part of the lemon zest for a refreshing taste.

Marble Distilling

New restaurants are: Buffalo Wild Wings and The Mining Exchange & Antlers Hotel.
