Ciders are great! Especially when they are created by some of the best cideries in Colorado. Stem Ciders has joined our group for this year. If you haven’t visited them in the River North Area of Denver, you should. They make a range of ciders at about 6% alcohol with a crisp flavor and bright clear appearance. Joining Stem, we have Wild Ciders from Firestone, Colorado. Wild is back for the second year at the festival. We hope you enjoy the opportunity to test the ciders of these two great producers.
That’s right 64 brewers have signed up. We are discussing final arrangements with about a dozen more brewers who would like to attend. We have room for 70! And, did we mention that those 64 brewers are bringing 187 different beers for you to sample? The smart money is buying tickets early – we are already 25% sold out, the early entry tickets are 50% sold out, and the brewer insider passes are about 80% sold. Buy Tickets Now!
Some of the latest to join the party are Declaration, Triple S, Vail Brewing, and Weldwerks Brewing – all new this year! See the complete list on the 2015 Brewer Lineup page.

The count is now 56 brewers. Six new brewers have signed up in the past few days. With just 14 slots left, we should have our full compliment of brewers withing the next week.
That’s right, 50 Colorado brewers have already signed up to participate in the 2015 All Colorado Beer Festival. These brewers have scheduled to bring 142 beers.
