Six of these distillers recently won medals at the Denver International Spirits Competition.

Also returning this year as a sponsor is Coaltrain Wine & Spirits who promises to fill in some gaps for distilleries not able to come.

For those of you not drinking alcohol or looking for a mixer, we will have soft drinks from Trader Joe’s and Cranberry Lavender Kombucha from Happy Leaf. And, if you drink a bit too much, grab a bottle of ResQ Water!
