Do You Hate Lines?

Almost everyone hates Fun at the Festivallines – especially at beer festivals. Well, here’s your chance to avoid the lines at this year’s All Colorado Beer Festival.

The general admission sessions begin at 1:00 PM and 6:30 PM and give you 3 1/2 hours to sample the best Colorado brewers have to offer – just you and about 1,600 of your closest friends.

For just $5 more you can get one of 150 Early Entry tickets available at each session. This extra $5 gets you in the door an hour early with just you and a few close friends and ALL THAT BEER!

Want even more? Then go for the VIP ticket. At just $50, you get in an hour early plus you have access to the VIP Zone with an extra 30 beers for the entire session. And, we will sit you down for an appetizer and beer pairing under the guidance of Austin Sherwood from Coaltrain Wine and Liquor. Only 125 VIP tickets are available for each session.

Don’t delay these special tickets are going quickly and will sell out well before the festival!

Number 67 Is Phantom Canyon

Phantom Canyon Brewing is a longtime fixture in downtown Colorado Springs predating just about every other brewery in the city. How could we have an All Colorado Beer Festival in Colorado Springs without them? Now we won’t have to. Phantom will be back again this year.

Number 66 Is Iron Bird Brewing

Iron Bird Brewing is a very recent addition to the Colorado Springs brewing scene having opened their doors just two and a half weeks ago. Their specialty is cask conditioned ales. They have five beers on their regular taps and four using beer machines to pull directly from firkens. Aaron and Mike are eager to have you drop in.

Happy Leaf Kombucha Offers an Alternative Non-Alcoholic Option

Maybe you know what it is and maybe you’ve never heard of it – KOMBUCHA. Kombucha is an ancient elixir that has been brewed for over 2000 years.  A combination of tea, organic cane sugar and a Symbiotic Colony of Bacteria and Yeast or SCOBY, are combined and lightly fermented to create a tart, effervescent tea.  While trace amounts of alcohol are created by the fermentation process, it is considered non-alcoholic and has less alcohol than non-alcoholic beer.  The tea has been regarded by some as the key to a long and healthy life.  The lactobacillus culture in kombucha aids in both liver detoxification and acts as a probiotic for digestion.  The fermentation process produces naturally occurring healthy acids and B-Vitamins which have been shown to enhance mood.

Happy Leaf opened less than a year ago in Denver to create this unique beverage and will be joining us as part of our Designated Driver area. However, we want everyone who comes to the festival to sample the wonderful flavors they offer. How about Longevity flavored with lemon, hibiscus, and ginger? Or maybe you will go crazy for Pura Vida with coconut, ginger, and lime.
