It's an annual event that celebrates a taste and flavor of Northern Colorado that is the envy of everyone else...but they're invited too. It's the 29th Annual Brewers Festival in Downtown Fort Collins this Friday thru Sunday.

There will be delicious home brews everywhere as over 150 Colorado beers and over 40 Colorado breweries will set up in Washington Park. Along with beer, there will also be food vendors, artisan exhibitors and over 10 hours of live music.

The website will give you much of the detail, but one section to notice is "What's New This Year":

  • The Collaboration Beer Pavilion: 20 plus Fort Collins breweries join forces to brew six exclusive beers!
  • All of the breweries will feature different beer on Saturday and Sunday.
  • The return of Breakfast & Brews at Union Bar & Soda Fountain Saturday morning.
  • The Grand Beer Hall with an interactive Beer School

It is FREE to enter, but there is a lot going on and it will be a little different each day, so getting that three day tasting pass may be your best option. There are a variety of packages to choose from one that includes everything (The Friday night "Summit, the Breakfast & Brews, and the main festival) to just the the main festival. Those prices range from $40 (main festival) to $125 (for all access).

This is truly one of the best outdoor parties of the year in scenic Downtown Fort Collins and includes a little of everything that makes Northern Colorado special.
