Celebrate canines and craft brews this fall at the 9th Annual Fall Harvest Brewfest!

If you’re a beer lover in Northern Colorado, chances are you have a bucket list of brews to check off.  Enter Fall Harvest Brewfest:  an epic one stop, unlimited sipping experience.  The event is in its 9th year of production after launching in 2009, pairing with Animal House Rescue & Grooming.  Take part in one of our favorite combinations: pups and hops.  Ticket prices range from $37.50 for general admission to $55.00 for VIP access.  The event winds throughout the Lincoln Center in Old Town Fort Collins, top to bottom, inside and out, with enough vendors to keep the lines down and your taste buds waggin’.  Tickets go up $5 day-of!  Get ’em early folks!

Presented by Wilbur’s Total Beverage, the fest will run from 6-9pm on Saturday, September 23rd, with a limited ticket VIP event from 5-6 before general admission doors open.  Brewfestivians will have access to 100+ beers from over 35 different breweries and micro-distilleries along with noshables for purchase from your favorite local food trucks. Live music will play throughout the evening, starting in the main ballroom with budding singer/songwriter Jaanvi Gurung.  Headliner for the evening is roots rockabilly favorites, Kerry Pastine & the Crime Scene.

Event producers, Black Lab Walking Productions, will partner again with The Animal House Shelter and Rescue as the event’s non-profit beneficiary, bringing the same cohesiveness and community feel to the brewfest as in year’s past.  With your generosity, over $15,000 bones were raised in 2016 with hopes to surpass that number in 2017!

A note from FHB: Craft brews are both nutritious and delicious but a meal they do not make. We will have food trucks on site to explore the limits of your taste buds with your favorite suds. Make sure you have some food in your belly to work with the higher ABV content in these delicous beverages!
