Ryan at Colorado Brewers' Festival 2010

I’ve been writing and attending festivals in Colorado for long enough to inform you with authority that we Coloradoans celebrate beer very, very well. I don’t try to keep up with all of the beer festivals around the state – it would be nearly impossible. There are events that feature chili beers, microbrews, home brews, and there are small fests and large fests and then there’s the grand daddy of all beer festivals, the Great American Beer Festival.

One of the things I most like giving away on HeidiTown are tickets to beer events. After all, free beer always proves to be very popular.

This week I’m giving away two tickets to Colorado Brewers’ Festival.

After trying a new approach to the festival last year, the organizers have gone back to what has worked best in the past – although the event is still being held in location of Civic Center Park in downtown at LaPorte and Howes Street.

The organizers have done away with the beer sessions that were instituted last year, and now festivalgoers can enjoy tasting beers and listening to bands on three stages all day long. Twenty bands will play over the two days with 12 Cents for Marvin and 3 Twins Broadband headlining the event.

This year’s festival is being held June 25-26, 2011. Tickets purchased in advance are $10, and tickets at the gate are $15. Designated drivers get in for free. Once inside, patrons can purchase $1 tokens and exchange them for 4 oz. tasters on any of the over sixty Colorado beers that will be represented at the event.

~ CONTEST CLOSED ~

In order to be entered to win a pair of tickets to this year’s festival, please leave me a comment below telling me your favorite Colorado beer. My current pick is Little Red Cap by Grimm Brothers Brewhouse located in Loveland. Be sure to stop by and visit them at the festival – tell them the Mayor of HeidiTown sent you.

A winner will be chosen at random on Friday at 3 p.m.
