Let the Countdown Begin – 10 Days To Go!!

The All Colorado Beer Festival is now just 10 days away. Our brewers are excited and so are the organizers.

As of this evening we have sold 1,870 tickets of 3,200 total available. That’s 58% – over twice as many as we have ever sold by this date. Last year we were sold out for the evening session before the doors opened. This year we could be sold out for both sessions. Don’t wait until the last minute. We hold to a maximum of 1,600 tickets per session so we can guarantee you a great experience with minimal lines and enough room to move.

The VIP sessions are completely sold out and the afternoon early entry tickets are also gone. We still have some early entry tickets available for the evening. Why not give yourself a $5 gift by buying the evening early entry ticket. You get in early and there will only be 275 folks in the hall. Plus, we will be announcing the medal winners during the first hour of the evening session.

Buy you tickets now!

Beer, Wine & Spirit Drinker’s Guide to Colorado

Beerdrinker's guidebookAre you a fan of the Beerdrinker’s Guide to Colorado? Mike Laur and his team have long provided us with a great guide to finding the best breweries across the state along with a rich package of coupons. Now they have produced a really great spiral-bound handbook that covers all the breweries AND adds distilleries and wineries. Foldout maps are included for each region of the state. The guide comes packaged with the original (updated) folded map and the coupon package with over $300 of free stuff!

The suggested retail price for the trio package is $27.95. You can get yours for $25 at the All Colorado Beer Festival merchandise booth. Think Christmas gifts for all you friends and family.


ACBF Nominated for Award

Business & Arts LunchThe Culteral Office of the Pikes Peak Region (COPPeR) annually holds a business and arts luncheon and awards ceremony. This year the All Colorado Beer Festival was nominated for the Philanthropy Award because we provide significant financial support to the arts community. (ACBF is the single largest donor to THEATREWORKS.) Only three organizations were selected as finalists for this award: All Colorado Beer Festival, Downtown Partnership, and Sam & Kathy Guadagnoli. We congratulate the Guadagnolis who were selected as the winner of the Philanthropy Award and feel honored to be in the company of the two other nominees for this award.

As most of you know, the ACBF was created explicitly for the purpose of raising money for local nonprofit organizations (see Beneficiaries). Almost 50% of the price of every ticket is donated. No member of the ACBF organization receives any pay for their year long effort to put on the festival. However, the organization could not have the impact it does without all of you who purchase tickets to the event. THANK YOU!!

Afternoon VIP Tickets SOLD OUT

The afternoon VIP tickets are sold out. If you want to sample the extra beers in the VIP Zone, get into the festival session an hour early, and sit down to an appetizer and beer sampling, you will want to grab some of the remaining VIP tickets for the evening session.
