For the first time ever Denver, Colo. will be graced with the Epic Beer Festival on June 28th and 29th!
If you missed out on last weekend’s Colorado Brewers’ Festival, you can make it up to yourself by attending the Epic Beer Festival. In its inaugural year in Denver, the Epic Beer Festival will feature 120 different craft breweries from all over the United States and plus many International breweries as well.
Local favorites like AC Golden Brewery, Boulder Brewing Co, New Belgium and Oskar Blues Brewing Co. will be in attendance. Other national favorites such as, Alaskan Brewing Co, Anchor Brewing Co, Big Sky Brewing, Flying Dog Brewing Co and Lagunitas Brewing Co, will also be sharing their craft brews. You’ll find plenty of stouts, porters, IPAs, reds, wheats, pilsners, gluten free beers and many more styles, so be sure to branch out and try something you’ve never had. Slated to serve upwards of 350 different crafts brews you’re bound to find at least one new favorite, if not more!
This festival will have three different tasting sessions, one on Friday the 28th and two on Saturday the 29th, and will take place at the Colorado Convention Center. Friday’s session will start at 7pm and end at 10pm, and Saturday’s first session will take place from 1pm-4pm and the second from 7pm-10pm. Purchase of a $40 general admission ticket will gain you entrance to the festival, an Epic Beer Festival tasting cup and 2oz tasting pours of all festival beers. Be sure to grab a bite to eat before hand as there will be only be concession food available for attending patrons.
Are you a designated driver? Well there’s good news for you, Epic Beer Festival has a Designated Driver program that gets you all the fun and souvenirs at the festival for FREE! All you have to do is purchase a regular General Admission ticket, show up, have fun without drinking alcohol and then stop by the Designated Driver station on your way out to take a breathalyzer. Blow .00 and your ticket cost will be refunded in FULL! Otherwise, you have obviously consumed alcohol and will NOT be refunded your ticket cost.
Best of all the Epic Beer Festival benefits We Don’t Waste, a nonprofit based in Colorado that provides food for the hungry. The program collects leftover food from various food purveyors, restaurants, and events, and then distributes the unused foods to those in need. So purchase a ticket and help feed the hungry!
