26th Annual Event Features Craft Beers, Bands & BBQ In The Colorado Mountains
Beers, bands and BBQ combine to make for what organizers call a “pig-pickin’, foot-stompin’, beer-drinkin’ block party” in the Colorado mountains.
Sounds like our kind of event!
It’s the 26th annual Breckenridge Breweries Hootenanny, and the 2016 event takes place on the brewery’s massive 12-acre “campus” in Littleton, Colorado on July 9.
Thousands of people turn out for this event, which has bands on two stages, dancing, pigging out on food and drinking lots of craft beer.
Tickets are $45 and that includes four beers and the BBQ.
“Our Hootenanny really speaks to who we are,” said Todd Thibault, the brewery’s Culture Czar. “We’ve grown up a bit over the twenty-six years, but we’re still the same folks who enjoy good beer and good times with friends.
“That’s why we do this. We want to share what we love with the folks who helped us get here.”
The bands on the main stage are Big Head Todd & The Monsters, Robert Randolph And The Family Band, Larry & Jenny Keel and Head For The Hills. On the beer garden stage it’s Zolopht, Grant Farm, We Dream Dawn, Sweet Lilies, and Caribu Mountain Collective.
Among the beers at the event are the brews from Breckenridge Brewery: Vanilla Porter, Avalanche Amber Ale, Agave Wheat, 471 Double IPA, and Breck IPA, along with a variety of specialty beers.
The event runs from 11 a.m.-7 p.m.
Shuttle services are provided. You can catch the shuttles and get dropped off at the following locations: Arapahoe Community College (nearest lightrail: Littleton Downtown Lightrail Station) and RTD Light Rail station (Santa Fe & Mineral), For Light-Rail Schedules: http://bit.ly/1ot7MLG.
As in years past, the Breckenridge Brewery Hootenanny benefits Conscious Alliance, a Colorado-based non-profit that fights hunger across the nation through its grassroots food collection and hunger awareness programs.
