Best Beer Festival
All Colorado Beer Festival
In its 9th year, the ACBF just keeps getting better and better.
Manitou Heritage Beer Festival
It was refreshing to have a beer festival back in Manitou Springs after all the natural disasters pushed the Craft Lager fest out.
Springs Beer Fest
As a festival to benefit Care and Share, and originally created in honor of Bristol’s Josh Osterhoudt, this is always on our calendar.
Best Educational Beer Event
Talk Nerdy to Me at Fossil Craft Beer Company
Rocket in My Beer Festival
International Women’s Collaboration Brewday
Best Philanthropic Beer Event
Brewers’ Food Drive organized by Fieldhouse Brewing
Benefiting Care and Share, this yearly competition pits breweries against each other to raise food donations!
Bill & Sally Layton’s SADs Oktoberfest
If you haven’t been to Bill Layton of Bite Me Sausage’s Oktoberfest, you’re missing out.
Beer 4 Boobies at Pikes Peak Brewing
All the ladies of Pikes Peak Brewing came together to brew their third annual Beer 4 Boobies, a seasonal to benefit Breast Cancer Awareness!
Best Athletic Beer Event
Weekly Run Groups at local Breweries
(As individual events they wouldn’t have placed, but as a whole, they win! Thanks to all our breweries for hosting runners every week, helping get our town into shape!)
Pedals and Pints
Huge shout out to Henry Guzman and his crew of bikers who ride around to local breweries every week!
Manitou Incline Beer Mile
The Incline is already hard…adding in beer sounds impossible.
Please remember, we value every brewery here in town as a part of the collective whole. (Even those who don’t like us.) Our beer industry here locally is growing in leaps and bounds and we’re excited to see where it goes from here! Congrats to everyone for making it another incredible year!
