The Fourth Annual Collaboration Fest Returns to Denver March 25th

imageFrom The Colorado Brewers Guild:

What: Collaboration Fest is a unique beer festival in that each beer is created specifically for this event. Colorado Brewers Guild members team up with breweries from near and far to create one-time-only beers, and share a story about how and why a certain beer is created. Collaboration Fest will serve as the headline event of Colorado Craft Beer Week. 

Collaboration Fest was created by Two Parts and the Colorado Brewers Guild (CBG) in 2014, as a way to give brewers the opportunity to brew a unique beer with another brewery. The festival will feature more than 75 projects and 100 breweries. The beers created for Collaboration Fest will be available on a limited basis, with many only available at the festival. This festival has sold out in previous years. 

When: Saturday, March 25, 2017 4:00 p.m. -  7:00 p.m.

Where: National Western Stock Show Complex (4655 Humboldt St., Denver CO 80216). 

Why: Now in its fourth year, Collaboration Fest is quickly becoming one of Colorado’s most popular beer festivals. Collaboration Fest showcases the collaborative nature of the craft beer industry. Brewers love to brew beer with friends, and by creating a collaboration they are able to push their own limits and experiment with new styles and techniques. Collaboration Fest highlights the innovative minds within the four boundaries of Colorado, and around the world.
