Colorado Distillers Festival is this weekend

And you should go.

This summer, Josh Mishell visited 25 distilleries. Twenty-two in Colorado, two in Brooklyn, and one in Maine. His journey covered many miles and many hangovers. Thankfully for you, your wallet, though not so much your liver, you can visit 26 of them this Sunday at Rackhouse Pub.

The 3rd Annual Colorado Distillers Festival is Sunday, September 8, from 1-5pm. The $45 ticket ($50 day of…) gets you unlimited samples from the distilleries, as well as a Rackhouse buffet. Pad your stomach, man. This is a distillers fest!

We’ve been before, and we’ll go again. It’s an incredible event.

Beyond the new People’s Choice Cocktail competition, four special guest bartenders will be on hand to mix up your favorites. Bartenders include Stuart Jensen from Green Russell, Tristan Toney from twelve, Michael Bowman of Adelitas, and Aaron Lobato from Interstate Kitchen.
