We’re convinced Breckenridge has the perfect beer festival attitude- at LEAST one a season. So here it is! The 9th Annual Breckenridge Spring Beer Festival! What more could we ask for than a mountain side to gaze upon, cute bunnies, fresh flowers, and fantastic beer straight from the tap of the brewers themselves? You could even get a few runs in before hand!

Saturday, April 4th, plan be at Ridge Street in Downtown Breckenridge from 12pm-5pm tasting brews from over 30 breweries, including Bristol, Left Hand, Odell, Upslope and many more satisfying beer crafters. Expect live music and great local food vendors as well.

We openly ask for an invite to this festival of deliciousness!

We’re sure you’ve done your fair share of celebrating this weekend already, but we’re not quite done with the fantastic Irish inspired drinking holiday! In honor of St. Patrick’s Day, we are not straying from the traditional Irish beer. Instead of a fancy craft beer, we are going to highly suggest you grab hold of some Guinness this coming Tuesday. Now, exactly which Guinness is completely up to your taste buds!

The classic Guinness  Draught is a good place to start- this beer is a meal in a cup! A smooth, velvet beer from the first sip to the last drop. Enjoy an Irish tradition!

If you ever go to Ireland, you’ll have a choice between 2 different beers- a Guiness (obviously) or a Magners Irish Cider. And it’s between these two choices that you shouldn’t have much trouble creating a great night for yourself! If you’ve never had a cider, imagine Apple jui

 

ce and beer got together and made a great, crisp, refreshing beverage.

Magners really sticks to traditional methods of creating their brews since 1935. They use over 17 varieties of ripe apples, pressing and filtering them, letting them ferment for 2 years, tasting it along the way. Sure, there are quicker ways of making cider, but then it wouldn’t be Magners.

This would be a great beer to try out this St. Patty’s day!

The infamous drinking holiday is upon us- St. Patrick’s Day! Looking for a lucky place to celebrate the gleeful day and show off every piece of green clothing in you closet? We were hoping you’d say yes…

In Ft. Collin’s, don’t miss out on Lucky Joe’s St. Patrick’s Day Parade starting at 10 a.m., Saturday March 14th. The parade and party are FREE to the public and includes 80 plus floats and Irish themed celebrators. So make your way to Old Town Square to experience the holiday! Once you enjoy the parade, head to Linden & Walnut until 5 p.m. for the Old Town Irish Party. There will be live music, food, beverages, and entertainment for all ages.

If you’re in Boulder, we suggest heading to Conor O’Neill’s Irish Pub for some classic Irish fare and beer. We can promise some fantastic live music! Typically every year they also host what is called ” The World’s Shortest St. Patrick’s Day Parade” so don’t be surprised if you stumble upon that celebration as well.

Get to your closest Irish Pub and let the festivities begin!
