2016 Brewer Lineup at 59!

Posted by on Sep 20, 2016 in Featured | 0 comments

Here’s the brewer lineup so far for 2016. The count is at 59 so far. We are aiming for 80 with well over 225 beers! If your favorite brewer is missing on our 2016 BREWER LINEUP page, please ask them to contact us. Please remember to thank these brewers when you visit them. There would be no festival without the support of our brewers. Remember, the brewers are not paid. They donate all the beer for the festival.

Below are four of our sponsoring brewers. Their financial support is key to making the festival a success.

Very good. You got it! Yes, this is the centerpiece over the new RiNo Blue Moon Brewery bar. The bar serves 23 Blue Moon beers on tap including a really tasty Grand Cru, and Eldorado Brown IPA, and a Cappuccino Stout. Stop by when you are up in Denver. Congrats to Karen D. who posted the correct answer.

This one is not a brewery, but it is a place that you need to know about. 60 beer taps and at least as many specialty bottles!

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.

I hope I found a way to make this tougher!

Here’s your #5 “Where Am I?”

This brewpub has a rock & roll theme featuring famous guitars, record covers, and photos. Even the sample serving tray is in the shape of a guitar.

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!

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.

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!

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.

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.
