Event Spotlight: Breckenridge Beer Festival

Looking for an epic time this spring in Summit County? The Breckenridge Beer Fest is approaching quickly. This time every year the town of Breckenridge hosts the annual spring beer festival that Peak 1 Express employees love attending! On April 11th enjoy food, retail and an assortment of delicious brews from over 35 different craft breweries. Right on 100-200 blocks of  Ridge street in Breckenridge, the location makes it unbelievably easy to do everything in one day.

This event doesn’t start till noon and gives you a good amount of time to enjoy and sip until 5 pm.  If you have any interest in volunteering at this event, they are still looking for some help. All of the Breckenridge Beer Fest proceeds help fundraise for Friends of the Colorado Avalanche Information Center. Volunteers will receive a volunteer t-shirt, discounted upgrades for the unlimited tasting ticket, and  of course praise for helping out! Volunteers should arrive 10-15 minutes before designated volunteer time. Visit the Breckenridge Spring Fever Beer festival facebook if you are interested.

If you are more interested in just coming to check everything out and do not really have the time to volunteer you can purchase different types of tickets. There is a pre sale unlimited tasting ticket. This guarantees entrance plus you receive a small tasting glass. Pre sale VIP tickets are also available and guarantee entrance to VIP tents, plus a catered lunch from Moe’s BBQ, full size tasting mug, and private bathrooms. If you are the designated driver theres a VIP ticket for that and you get everything the VIP tickets offer except the beer tasting.

Even if you aren’t old enough to consume alcohol, there are still tons of things to do at the Breckenridge beer festival. This event can honestly be for anyone. If you like craft beers, definitely make the trip over to Ridge Street and check out this event on April 11th.  And remember, the Peak 1 Breckenridge Airport Shuttle is always a good way to keep off the roads if you’ve been drinking!
