Colorado’s Highest Altitude Beer Tasting
This June 14th through 17th, the Vail Craft Beer Classic kicks off as a perfect mountain getaway for beer enthusiasts, foodies, and outdoor adventure-seekers.
The Classic is an event that not only celebrates craft beer and delicious cuisine, but also shows off Vail Valley with all the scenery and outdoor activities it has to offer. Tickets for the Grand Tastings are on sale today including the Friday Night Sip at the Summit and Saturday’s Toast of Vail events. Both events feature hundreds of beers from around the country to be sampled with owners, founders and brewers to tell you about their brews.
“Grand Tasting” might not be exactly the term that comes to mind when people think beer festival but the Classic has taken Colorado’s booming beer culture a few steps above a traditional beer fest. “In Colorado you can drink good beer at a festival any weekend of the year. We wanted to create an elevated experience that really takes it to the next level; take the gondola to a tasting, go mountain biking with the brewer, sit down for lunch with the founder.” says Jason Ornstein of Team Player Productions.
Presented by the Colorado Brewers Guild, the Sip at the Summit event exclusively features beers brewed in our home state in an intimate tasting with very limited tickets. The event takes place at 10,250 feet at the top of the Eagle Bahn Gondola on Friday evening, arguing the title of highest altitude beer festival in the country!
