As of today, we slip under 100 days until the 2014 All Colorado Beer Festival. We also welcome our 56th brewer: Fieldhouse. Niki and Travis Fields opened Fieldhouse in downtown Colorado Springs on the busy Tejon Street corridor. What better place to position a quality craft brewer.
Fossil Brewing, located in Colorado Springs off Highway 24 near 31st Street, just brewed its first batch of beer on its own system. They anticipate a grand opening in early August. We welcome Fossil as the 55th brewery to sign up for the 8th annual All Colorado Beer Festival.
Some months ago we visited Blue Spruce Brewing on County Line Road at Colorado Blvd. in Lone Tree. While we were there we invited Rick Kane to bring his brewery to the All Colorado Beer Festival. At that time, having been open all of one week, he wasn’t sure they could make it and thought they might have a conflicting event. Well, now that the brewery is fully operational, Rick decided that the All Colorado Beer Festival would be on their list of events for the year. Welcome aboard Blue Spruce.
On the 4th of July we added our 53rd brewer for the 2014 festival: Horse and Dragon Brewing Company. Horse and Dragon is located in Fort Collins and opened in March of this year. They are currently brewing nine styles. Another new brewer to temp all our beer-loving guests!
We just received confirmation that a brand new brewer in the Denver area, Mu Brewery, will join the 2014 festival. Mu is so new that their are yet to hold their grand opening. If you want to check out this new brewer visit them at 9735 E. Colfax.
We opened our reservations to new brewers on July 1st and four brewers have already signed up to join us this year: Shamrock Brewing, Manitou Brewing, Kokapelli Beer Company, and Walter’s Beer. Shamrock and Walter’s mark the return to the festival of brewers from Pueblo – a welcome addition. Kokapelli comes from Westminster and Manitou is from Maintou Springs right here in the Pikes Peak Region.
