Boulder’s Winter Craft Beer Festival 2020

Summer is ripe with beer-centric activities from tastings to brewery-sponsored concerts to outdoor events. Fortunately for us, our city loves this frothy beverage so much that it hosts a Winter Craft Beer Festival full of creamy stouts, rich porters, and hazy IPAs. Join our community’s beer lovers this February to keep warm inside while sampling the gamut of new and unique brews. Here’s what you need to know.

When and Where

Celebrate an event that comes around once every four years – leap year! This February, the Winter Craft Beer Fest takes place on this infrequent and special occurrence, meaning there’s no excuse not to go. VIP tickets grant access at 12, but for everyone else, the festival runs from 1 – 5 pm and takes place at Balch Fieldhouse at Folsom Field.

Must Love Beer

A ticket to Boulder’s Winter Craft Beer Festival allows participants to sample all the beer they care to. Many of the breweries are from Colorado, however, a few, like Cigar City and Bell’s, have come from the far flung locales of Tampa, Florida and Kalamazoo, Michigan.

This event focuses on ‘disrupting’ the ordinary and introducing extraordinary to beer lovers in our great state. The Winter Craft Beer Fest encourages guests to break their usual routine and step out of their beer-drinking comfort zones. Taps will flow with every kind of beer you can ever dream to sample, so, even if you have a preference, you just may discover an entirely new world of wheat-based beverages.

Spend Saturday strolling from booth to booth, chatting with head brewers, and sipping expertly crafted beer. Dig into delicious eats from a variety of vendors or make a pretzel necklace to have an on-the-go snack that is the perfect complement to beer. Listen to live music and be on the lookout for fun surprises throughout the festival.

Rules and Regs (The Fine Print)   

There are a couple stipulations for entry. No one under 21 may access the festival – including babies and dogs. Designated drivers may come for $5 but cannot be under 21, either. Transportation options are aplenty so organize a designated driver, plan to Lyft or Uber, or take a bus back home after the fest.

Throughout the year, Boulder hosts a plethora of awesome festivals that celebrate craft, culture, and creativity. The Winter Craft Beer Festival allows guests to break out of any beer rut and shake off the cold weather blues by sampling new brews from treasured brew masters.
