Avery expects 85 beers from more than forty breweries, some that arent usually available in Colorado like Allagash, Shorts, Founders and Cambridge, New Holland and Firestone Walker as well as many of Colorados stalwarts.
Tickets to the fest, which runs today from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. and tomorrow from noon to 5 p.m., are $35 and available at www.ticketalternative.com. For their money, attendees get sixteen tickets that are each good for a two-ounce pour, a commemorative glass and the chance to mingle with the brewers themselves.
The fest takes place at the Avery Tap Room & Barrel-Aging Cellars, 5763 Arapahoe Avenue in Boulder. For more information, go to www.averybrewing.com.
