Things to Do

Big Beers, Belgians and Barleywines are flowing in Vail this weekend

The thirteenth annual Big Beers, Belgians and Barleywines Festival got tapped yesterday in Vail, and it runs through Saturday, January 12.

This winter fest -- which takes place at Vail Cascade Resort & Spa -- features some of the most unique and rare (and strongest) craft beers in the country.
