The Taste of Loveland gets bigger every year and 2015 is no exception. In fact, due to the many breweries that are involved this year, the event has changed their tag line from a “Wine & Food Experience,” to a “Wine, Beer & Food Experience.“ Several distilleries will be there too. I haven’t been to the Taste of Loveland in several years, but in the past I’ve had a ton of fun (and food) at this event. Around 30 restaurants share tastes from their menus and even the grocery store King Soopers puts out a spread of cheese that would make a cheese lover cry with delight. Some of this year’s participating restaurants include 4th Street Chop House, Next Door Food & Drink and Pelican Lakes Restaurant and Bar. With nearly 50 wine/beer and distillery vendors, places like Wing Shack booth are sure to be popular. What goes better with beer than wings? Nothing, except maybe cheese. And if you’ve got a sweet tooth, B. Sweet Cupcakes has got you covered.
With so much delicious booze at this event it’s no wonder that the Taste of Loveland is working with Trunk Drivers to get folks safely home this year. This business will drive you home in your own vehicle. They will be located at the main entrance in red t-shirts. For information on pricing and reservations, visit TrunkDrivers.com. The Taste of Loveland raises money for the Foothills Service League which helps fund efforts by Foothills Gateway, Inc. and the Namaqua Center. Foothills Gateway improves the lives of people with cognitive disabilities and their families. Namaqua Center transforms lives through recovery, renewal and respect by providing behavioral health prevention, intervention and treatment services in Larimer County.
The Taste of Loveland is April 23, 2015 from 6 to 9 p.m. at the Rocky Mountain Center for Innovation and Technology (former HP/Agilent Complex at Taft Ave. and 14th Street). Get your tickets today at FoothillsServiceLeague.org.
