Celebrate canines and craft brews this fall at the 7th 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 7th year of production after launching in 2009, fundraising for Animal House Rescue.  Take part in a favorite combination of pairings: pups and hops.

Presented by Wilbur’s Total Beverage, the fest will run from 7-10pm on Friday, September 11th, with a limited ticket VIP event from 6-7 before general admission doors open.  Brewfestivians will have access to 100+ beers from over 35 different breweries and micro-distilleries along with food pairings from MouCo, one of Colorado’s favorite artisanal cheeses along with noshables for purchase from your favorite local food trucks.

Ticket prices range from $37.50 for general admission to $55.00 for VIP access that includes a commemorative beer tasting glass for unlimited samplings.  Live music will play throughout the evening, starting with Tallgrass, a “…trio that brings gravel road vocals, quick picked guitar and stomping ground soul”.  Troubadour Sound Systems spins their wares on the terrace or you can funk it up with Silent Storm, the best in groove down silent dance party sound.  The event winds throughout the Lincoln Center, top to bottom, inside and out, with enough vendors to keep the lines down and your taste buds waggin’.

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 brewfest as in year’s past:  Over $15,000 raised in 2014 with hopes to beat that number in 2015.

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!
