Tonight: Big Beers, Belgians and Barleywines in Vail

Tonight, the Big Beers, Belgians & Barleywines Festival will kick off in Vail with a stellar lineup of breweries, some of which are even offering specialty brews for the tenth annual installment of the festival. Although the brewmasters' dinners are all sold out, the Vail Cascade Resort & Spa, 1300 Westhaven Drive, will have several of these specialty beers on tap -- and the chef has paired them with new entrees, too, so you can build your own beer dinner. Other events include seminars, tastings and much more; find all the details at
