Riff Raff Brewing Company from Pagosa Springs is the latest brewery to join the 2014 lineup. Great beer in a fun location with a wonderful menu – that’s Riff Raff Brewing.
Last year, Pug Ryan’s doppel bock won the gold medal in its category and then came back to win best of show. We are happy to welcome Pug Ryan’s back to the festival for another year. With their addition, we are at 61 brewers. Only space left for nine additional brewers.
With the addition of two returning brewers our 2014 brewer lineup has reached 60. That means we only have ten remaining spaces for brewers.
Our two returning brewers are Rockyard from Castle Rock and C.B. & Potts which will be representing their newest location here in Colorado Springs. The new Potts location is expected to open around the first of the year.
Oskar Blues has stepped up to be a major sponsor for this year’s All Colorado Beer Festival. They will bring their super fun silent disco to the festival. Everyone can dance to their own special favorite. Oskar Blues silent disco has long been extremely popular at the Great American Beer Festival and this year we will have them in Colorado Springs at the ACBF. Welcome Oskar Blues.
Two more have signed up for the 2014 All Colorado Beer Festival. First an old favorite brewer: Paradox Brewing from Woodland Park. We are super happy to have them back again this year. Second, Wild Cider from Firestone, Colorado will join us for the first time this year. Firestone is located north of Denver and east of I-25 opposite Longmont. Check out their line up at: wildcider.com.

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.
