The Best Annual Denver Beer Festivals
Great American Beer Festival
Among all the beer festivals in Denver, the Great American Beer Festival is one of the most popular. Held in the Colorado Convention Center, the 2018 Great American Beer Festival will bring together the best breweries from around the country to one location.
The 2018 Great American Beer Festival will take place from Sept. 20-22 and will feature hundreds (and hundreds) of breweries and thousands of different beers. The brewers will be the ones serving the beer and will be around to answer questions from patrons about the different beers. The festival is a great place to not only drink great beer but learn more about beer and the brewing process from the brewers themselves. If you love beer, then buy your Great American Beer Festival tickets today.
Denver Beer Fest
2018 marks the tenth year of the Denver Beer Fest. Scheduled this year for Sept. 14-22, the Denver Beer Fest runs right into the Great American Beer Festival, offering beer enthusiasts over a week of excellent drinking and beer education. Learn about Denver’s beer history, the city’s best breweries, and the people behind its thriving beer culture. Then cap off the week and head to the Great American Beer Festival!
An incredibly creative beer festival, the Collaboration Festival is celebrating its fifth year in 2018 on March 31 at the Hyatt Regency Downtown Denver. As the name suggests, Collaboration Festival features beers that are the result of two or more breweries working together to produce a one-of-a-kind beer. You probably won’t find these brews on shelves, so if you prefer your pints unique, you need to be here. This year’s 100+ beers include Strange Craft Beer Co. and Metro State University Brewing Program’s Nitro Raspberry Porter and Wynkoop Brewing Co. and White Labs’ Limey Unicorn, a British golden ale. Check out the full list!
Summer Brew Fest
There’s nothing quite like a great beer on a hot summer day (beer is mostly water!), and it’s safe to say that the folks behind Summer Brew Fest agree. One of two Denver beer festivals put on by RightOn Productions (Winter Brew Fest being the other), Summer Brew Fest 2018 will be held on July 27-28 at the Mile High Station. Featuring some of the best beers from Denver breweries, Summer Brew Fest is the perfect place to quench your thirst with some of the finest Denver craft beer.
