It’s a gnarly beer festival giveaway!

Gnarly Barley Brew Fest in Loveland, Colorado

There is nothing HeidiTown residents (and tourists) like more than free beer and it’s time, once again, to give some away.

The 3rd Annual Gnarly Barley Brew Festival is Saturday, August 6 at the Larimer County Fair at The Ranch in Loveland Colorado. This year’s event will be bigger and better than ever with 24 breweries attending.

Food and beer pairings will be available again this year presented by Beer Ambassadors from Anheuser-Busch. These “mini-tastings” will be available on a first-come, first-serve basis and held every 30 minutes from 2 to 5 p.m.

Guests can bring chairs and blankets and spend the afternoon at this beer event that includes musical guests 5 Minutes with Blanche, Better than Bacon and Archie Funker.

Tickets to Gnarly Barley Brew Festival are $15 and include a 4 oz. tasting mug and six tasting tokens. Additional tokens may be purchased at the fest for $1/each. Tickets are on sale now at ComcastTix. The event runs from 1 to 6 p.m.

Thankfully, for thirsty HeidiTown residents and tourists I have two pairs of Gnarly Barley Brew Festival tickets to giveaway. Enter by leaving me a comment and telling me what beer is in your fridge right now (and if you don’t have beer in your fridge perhaps you shouldn’t be allowed to win these tickets). Β πŸ™‚

Two winners will be chosen at random on Friday at 3 p.m.

Good luck! Β  And bottoms up!

***CONTEST NOW CLOSED***

WINNERS HAVE BEEN ANNOUNCED IN THE COMMENT SECTION. Β THANKS FOR ENTERING!

    1. No, haven’t tried that one yet. I really like Equinox beers. Their Eclipse Brown is my favorite. I’ll have to swing by and try the S’morter. Weird name. LOL!

  17. Master Thief…brewed in Loveland, CO by Grimm’s Brewhouse. One of the best beers in Northern Colorado and that is saying something.

    Reply

    1. Yeah! I was hoping someone would say Grimm. I was the first person in NoCo to write about them back when they were still making beer in their garage. Love those guys and they do make amazing beer.

  29. Sadly, I won’t be in town for Gnarly Barley, but the hubs will. So, if I win, he can make a trip out there! Even more sad is the fact that the only beer we have in our fridge right now is Hansen’s Root Beer. Must rectify this situation ASAP!
