Three Weeks to Go!

The All Colorado Beer Festival is just three weeks away. In fact, by this time (10:30 PM) in three weeks the festival will be all over.

Don’t miss out on tickets. we can’t guarantee that there will be any tickets available at the door. Last year we sold out the evening session before the doors opened. We expect that to happen again this year. This year we also expect the afternoon session to be sold out or very nearly so before the doors open. Don’t hesitate – buy your tickets NOW! It’s easy to do just visit our TICKETS page.

We are about to finalize our 70th brewer. We are also happy to announce a much wider range of food offering at the festival this year. In addition to the Buffalo Gals great tri-tip sandwiches and brats, we will have Mark Anthony’s Pretzels with a great buffalo pastrami sandwich on a pretzel bun, personal pizzas from Old Chicago, and a whole range of great offerings from All Things Pita. Of course our friends from Totally Nuts will be with us again.

Beer, Wine & Spirit Drinker’s Guide to Colorado

Beerdrinker's guidebookAre you a fan of the Beerdrinker’s Guide to Colorado? Mike Laur and his team have long provided us with a great guide to finding the best breweries across the state along with a rich package of coupons. Now they have produced a really great spiral-bound handbook that covers all the breweries AND adds distilleries and wineries. Foldout maps are included for each region of the state. The guide comes packaged with the original (updated) folded map and the coupon package with over $300 of free stuff!

The suggested retail price for the trio package is $27.95. You can get yours for $25 at the All Colorado Beer Festival merchandise booth. Think Christmas gifts for all you friends and family.

 

ACBF Nominated for Award

Business & Arts LunchThe Culteral Office of the Pikes Peak Region (COPPeR) annually holds a business and arts luncheon and awards ceremony. This year the All Colorado Beer Festival was nominated for the Philanthropy Award because we provide significant financial support to the arts community. (ACBF is the single largest donor to THEATREWORKS.) Only three organizations were selected as finalists for this award: All Colorado Beer Festival, Downtown Partnership, and Sam & Kathy Guadagnoli. We congratulate the Guadagnolis who were selected as the winner of the Philanthropy Award and feel honored to be in the company of the two other nominees for this award.

As most of you know, the ACBF was created explicitly for the purpose of raising money for local nonprofit organizations (see Beneficiaries). Almost 50% of the price of every ticket is donated. No member of the ACBF organization receives any pay for their year long effort to put on the festival. However, the organization could not have the impact it does without all of you who purchase tickets to the event. THANK YOU!!

Afternoon VIP Tickets SOLD OUT

The afternoon VIP tickets are sold out. If you want to sample the extra beers in the VIP Zone, get into the festival session an hour early, and sit down to an appetizer and beer sampling, you will want to grab some of the remaining VIP tickets for the evening session.

Time Out For GABF!

Thursday evening is the start of the Great American Beer Festival. The grand daddy of all beer festivals (except maybe the Munich Oktoberfest) will run thursday, Friday, and Saturday and host over 50,000 rabid beer fans.

While GABF may be on all our minds this week, don’t forget to get your tickets for the ACBF. There are just four VIP tickets remaining for the afternoon session. Overall, 45% of the tickets to the festival are sold. If you missed out on GABF tickets, don’t find yourself in the same situation for the ACBF!

Only One Spot Left

We are pleased to welcome another new brewer as number 69 at this year’s All Colorado Beer Festival. Living the Dream Brewing Company is located in Littleton, Colorado.

Living the Dream brews on a 7 barrel system. Jason, Carrie, and Jerod are the brains behind the brewery. One of my GABF friends turned me on to them. He says it is his new favorite place.
