What You Need to Know About the 2019 Boulder Craft Beer Festival

Our picturesque mountain hamlet is known for its scenic Flatiron views, world-class terrain, lively downtown, and craft beer scene. Boulder is home to an abundance of breweries that create unique brews all their own. Each year, Colorado embraces its brewing history and beer making progress by hosting a variety of beer festivals around the state. Fortunately for us, Boulder is home to a distinctive gathering that showcases brewers throughout Boulder County and the Front Range, giving its residents a chance to discover new brews and savor stalwart favorites. Here’s everything you need to know about this year’s Boulder Craft Beer Festival.

About the Event

Over 30 local breweries will pour select brews for guests to sample. With over 100 beers in rotation, this gives beer lovers an opportunity to enjoy their favorites, as well as try new styles. From IPAs to sours and everything in between, there’s something to quench everyone’s thirst at this community gathering.

In addition to fantastic beverages, the Boulder Craft Beer Festival includes food, music, and more. Two of Boulder’s best loved bandsPart & Parcel and Foxfeather, will play live music throughout the day. For exercise enthusiasts and yoga devotees who want to earn their beers, reserve a ticket for the yoga class offered at the festival entrance. Afterward, reward yourself and refuel with a refreshing brew and hearty bite from McDevitt Taco Supply. If you’re craving something else, sample offerings from other food truck vendors, including spicy pastries from Lazo Empanadas and farm-to-table focused Zeal.
