All Colorado Beer Festival 2007 announced

All Colorado Beer Festival 2007There's a new beer festival in Colorado this year, the All Colorado Beer Festival will take place in Colorado Springs this Saturday, November 10th, 2007. Here's an article from KOAA-TV in Colorado Springs on the fest:

Beer festival spotlights local brewers

At Bristol Brewery, beer is a way of life. From the hops to the tap, the beer life cycle is lived out on a daily basis. The Colorado Springs micro-brew is one of nearly 120 different brewers in our state. In fact, Colorado is home to more commercial breweries per capita than anywhere else in the country. We also top the list when it comes to the number of gallons of beer produced.

All that beer got local connoisseur Randy Dipner thinking, "that's enough to make a festival and we ought to really focus on those folks and give them a chance to show off the quality product that they have."

So, Dipner has put together the first ever All Colorado Beer Festival to celebrate our state's brewing heritage. On tap are over fifty different beers all made by local brewers. "Durango, Keystone, Fort Collins, Pueblo...we have brewers from all over the state coming to Colorado Springs this Saturday," said Dipner.

The beer they are serving is nothing to sneeze at either. One in 10 medals awarded at the Great American Beer Festival last month went to Colorado brewers. Nine of those brewers will be at Saturday's festival including Bristol.

The All Colorado Beer Festival is this Saturday at Mr. Biggs, 5828 Mark Dabling Boulevard. The first session is from Noon to 4:30 p.m. The second is from 5:30 p.m. to 10:00 p.m.

Tickets cost $25 at the door, $20 if purchased in advance from either the Theatreworks box office or the All Colorado Beer Festival web site. Proceeds will benefit Theatreworks and the U.S.O.
