Beerfest Weekend

Beerfest in Fort Collins


My friend E came to visit from so cal. He came cause there was a beer festival and he likes small local breweries! He also enjoys our company! I do miss seeing him and his family more often, but what can ya do!


Here are my favs:

Estes Park Brewery Longs Peak Raspberry Wheat

Pitchers Brewery – 808 Wheat


Here are my oks:

San Luis Valley Brewing Company – Hefe Suave (needed a lemon)

Left Hand Brewing Company – Juju Ginger

Ska Brewing Company – Pinstripe Red Ale

Boulder Beer Company – Sweaty Betty Blonde Wheat Beer


Here are my don’t likes:

Golden City Brewery – American Honey Wit

Anheuser Bush – Spring Heat Spice Wheat

Bull and Bush Brewery – Hail Brau Hefewizen


Didn’t get to try cause the damn college kids all woke up and were annoying and in the way:

Ft Collings Brewery – Major Tom’s Pomegranate Wheat

Tommy Knocker Brewery – Jack Whacker Wheat Ale

Wynkoop Brewing Co – Wixa Weiss


Lessons Learned:

Bring a camel back – it gets hot and the free water is chlorinated

Bring a coozie – to keep your cup a smidge cool and all the overflow stickies off your hand

Get there early – so you don’t have to fight the dang college kids

Bring snacks – don’t stop for lunch – stop for dinner when you are done!

Eat a big breakfast!

All in all it was a fun time! It was great to have such a selection of brews to try! Enough that I was pleased with the wheat/hefe selection and my friend E was pleased with the IPA selection! 


It was quite hot!  But the sunblock held!


Definitely would go again!
