“Now you understand the… passion for [beer],” said Japhy. “Remember that book I told you about.. the first sip is joy, the second is gladness, the third is serenity, the fourth is madness, the fifth is ecstasy.” ~Jack Kerouac

Fall Harvest Brewfest is celebrating our 5th year of hops and wags, so join us and help render up that fifth element of ecstasy at our shiny new venue! FHB is happy (ecstatic, really) to announce we will be moving to the Lincoln Center in Old Town this year. You will find 40 breweries & micro-distilleries along with craft beer-inspired local food pairings. For most of us, our inner beer enthusiast resides closer to the outside and needs but a gentle nudge. For the rest, we leave it to the creative wizards of hops, malt and timing to coax out the more resistant. There is a lid for every pot or a brew for every palate and we’re here to help you discover what that might be!
Live music will play throughout the evening, starting with an acoustic set by Fall Harvest Brewfest veteran Steve Murray, followed by NoCo’s peer reviewed Best New Band, Winchester Holiday. Self described as having, “…a repertoire ranging from Guthrie-esque ballads to telecaster and organ infused anthems, they draw in listeners from all age groups and reward them with rich imagery and infectious melodies.” If you’re voted NoCo’s Best New Band by such a fine and illustrious circle of talent on the Front Range, you know they’re gonna be good!
Two words: Food trucks. Check out our sponsor page for more details.
A toast to our past patrons: We met our goal of raising $16k in 2012 for The Animal House Rescue, our beneficiary partner, and hope to far exceed that number in 2013. Of course, it’s you, your involvement and ongoing attendance that makes the magic happen. Let’s raise a glass to all of you fine folks out there and ask you to pat your backs, your pup’s head, and feel good about Drinking Beer to Save a Dog.
