The 2016 edition of the Colorado Craft Spirits Festival is coming soon: May 21st from 6:00 to 9:00 PM. We will once again set up in the Dusty Loo Bon Vivant Theatre on the UCCS campus.
This year we are expecting 20 distillers and 10 restaurants. Our entertainment will be the Ian Ferguson Jazz Trio. We will once again have a series of education sessions. One of these will be a session on mixology led by the bar manager at the Famous.

Do you have your tickets for the Colorado Craft Spirits Festival? Only 300 will be sold for the June 27th event. Every guest will receive a classy glass for tasting the many Colorado spirits on display. The 5.5 oz. glass with the festival logo in satin etch is big enough to hold a neat sample, add an ice cube or two, a splash of water, or a bit of mixer.
The glasses are coming to us from DiscountMugs.com. All Colorado Beer Festival has done business with DiscountMugs for several years. Every time we work with them, the service is extraordinary. A couple years ago when you all surprised us by buying more Groupon tickets to the beer festival than we expected, we made a last minute order at DiscountMugs so we would have enough pint glasses to give to each guest. They handled the rush order made at midnight on a Saturday with no sweat. Now we are getting our spirits tasting glasses from them. If you have an event and need glassware, you should check them out!
