Just got word from Upslope that they will be joining our 2014 party. That brings the total to 40 brewers!
With the addition of Three Barrel, Colorado Cider, Hall, and Bull & Bush, the brewer count for the 2014 festival stands at 39. There are just two weeks remaining for brewers from last year to claim a spot at the festival before we open reservations to the brewers on our waiting list.
Eight more brewers from our 2013 participants have added their names to the brewers returning for the 2014 festival: Elevation Brewing, Elk Mountain Brewing, Bristol Brewing, Boulder Beer, Il Vicino Brewing, BJ’s Restaurant & Brewhouse, Fort Collins Brewery, and Colorado Mountain Brewery. If you get a chance, please stop in at these brewers and thank them for participating again this year.
One of my favorite brewers just signed up to return to the festival this year! River North will be joining the party again. Welcome back! As you may remember, River North’s J. Marie won a Silver medal at last year’s festival.
Today we received word from Redleg Brewing that they will be attending the festival again this year. Hopefully we can entice them to bring their World Beer Cup Bronze Medal winning Devil Dog Stout! Welcome aboard Redleg.
So, I think we have created a new fundamental rule. For the third time three more brewers have signed up in one day. This time it’s Kannah Creek, Eddyline, and Epic. With this threesome, the 2014 ACBF brewer count is at 25.
With the Memorial Day weekend behind us we turn our attention to welcoming more brewers for the 2014 festival. Today we have three more to add: Breckenridge, Twisted Pine, and Durango.
Three more of our festival regulars have confirmed they will be at the 2014 festival. That brings the total to 19 already. Blue Moon will again be a major sponsor. Miller/Coors will return with their Super Cold setup. And, Oskar Blues has plans to bring their Silent Disco to the festival.
