The All Colorado Beer Festival and Oskar Blues Restaurant in downtown Colorado Springs have place our proposed May beer gala on hold pending resolution of the coronavirus crisis. We will announce plans for a date as soon as possible.
Beers will come from the Canarchy Brewing Collective: Oskar Blues, Cigar City, Wahsatch, Squatter’s, Perrin, Deep Ellum, and Three Weavers. No, these are not ALL Colorado brewers, but they do include brewers that we don’t see very often. Live music and appetizers will be provided. Each ticket will include a choice of an ACBF hat, t-shirt, or pint glass. Tickets will be on sale soon for $25.

Craft ales and music go together! That’s because there’s nothing better than kickin’ back with tunes and a beer after a good day of work, or on the weekend when you have time to putter and relax.
In order to bring you more of what you love, the All Colorado Beer Festival is delighted to join forces with the MeadowGrass Music Festival for the 2nd Annual MeadowGrass Beer Tasting on Friday, May 24th from 4:30 until 7:00 PM. The beer tasting will feature about 18 brewers with some 36 beers. AND, you can stick around until 10:00 enjoying the live music!
If you purchase a three-day pass to MeadowGrass, the beer tasting on Friday is automatically included ! For those who just want to come for the night and hear the fabulous Friday line-up while they sip delicious ales and lagers, a Friday-only ticket is available. Purchase this and your parking pass and you are ready to Take Time to Listen!
The Friday only ticket is $67.99. If you are over 12, but not yet 21 or want a designated driver ticket, you can get a Friday night ticket for $47.99. There is no separate parking charge this year!

Changes are in the works for ACBF in 2019.
Gone will be the large November event. With the proliferation of beer festivals over the past five years or so, our attendance has softened, and without a growing attendance, we cannot meet the primary goal of the event: large donations to our beneficiaries.
Thus, we will move forward with a series of specialized events. First, we will continue with a small beer festival event at the MeadowGrass Music Festival on the Friday afternoon before Memorial Day weekend. Last year we had 18 brewers and music throughout the event. It was wonderful! We will also continue to support the downtown Steers and Beers Festival and the Monument Bines and Brews Festival. We hope to remount the highly successful All Colorado Spirits Festival that many of you enjoyed a few years ago.
