Summer is here, Denver! And that means patio season, Sunday Funday and of course many epic Colorado Beer Festivals. The countryside beckons for camping, backpacking, and tubing, while in the city parks and patios are the way to go. The best way to enjoy a beer in the sun is at one of the numerous Colorado beer festivals popping up throughout the state this summer. One fun and fancy way to journey to and from these imbibing events is through a Denver limo service: Denver Premier Limousine will safely escort you to any of the following destinations, and you’ll have peace of mind knowing the ride is taken care of.
Here are five of the top festivals this year:
Breckenridge Beer Festival
If you are traveling to this well known festival, reliable transportation is a must! This year marks the eleventh annual fest in Breckenridge, featuring over 55 breweries, live music, and an array of food vendors. Situated right outside the Beaver Run Resort & Conference Center, you can take in the mountains while you sample some of Colorado’s finest ales - what more could you ask for?
Burning Can (not just a) BeerFest
For a sporty outing, head to Lyons, CO, just north of Boulder. Here you can celebrate the craft canned beer, with over 60 breweries offering up their wares. That’s nearly 200 beers to choose from, at a scene that includes live music and sports competitions (it is known as an active beer fest, after all). If you choose to camp overnight in the Rockies, Denver Premier Limousine can help transport your gear and swoop you up the next day.
Colorado Brewers’ Festival
Set in Fort Collins, CO, this iconic event is the biggest and one of the best. Over 20,000 visitors came to town, even drawing travelers from out of state. Featuring over 50 local breweries and over 100 beers, you can dance to the live music, sample the goods from the food trucks, and try out their interactive “Beer School” that has tastings and brewing demonstrations.
Great American Beer Festival
This is the big daddy of Colorado beer festivals, taking place right in Denver. 400 of the best breweries in the nation will serve more than 1,800 beers over one weekend; you’ll have to come both nights to get your fill. Even though it’s hosted right downtown, the large crowds create a parking nightmare, and with all of the beer being tasted, make sure you contact DPL for your transportation needs this weekend.
Dozens of breweries will gather in Denver to celebrate all beer, session-style. Perfect summer drinking, session ales are light and crisp, and with an ABV below 5%, you’ll be able to try them all. This one is right in town, so you can still take your limo to other local events if the mood strikes you.
This is just a small sample of all the beer festivals you can participate in this year in Denver and the surrounding areas. With so many good options, you could plan an entire beer tasting season!
