Is Vail Big Beers the best festival in all the land?

The Vail Big Beers, Belgians & Barleywines Festival is one of the best weekends a beer lover could ask for. Beer? Check. Mountains? Check. All of your friends in a small mountain town covered in snow with free busses to the bars? Check.

A Nice Day At OB

I went to the Oskar Blues Can’d Aid Foundation Flood Relief Festival this past Sunday and had a really nice afternoon. As I mentioned before, this was a fundraising event for victims of our recent flooding. In contrast to that nasty weekend, Sunday was a beautiful day and perfect for bluegrass and sipping a few […]

Vail Cascade Resorts has been hosting a series of unique beer events […]

Winter Park Or Otherwise, Mountain Beer Festivals Are Where Its At.

With GABF about on us, the festival scene is on our minds again. David had a go at ticket sales this year and I had a shot at them last year. I think with all of the hubbub surrounding scalpers and the embittered ranting around Sour Fest, we might be losing sight of something important. […]
