Tonight: Raise a glass to the first Craft Spirits Festival in Breckenridge

Everyone knows that Colorado rules when it comes to craft beer -- and now, Breckenridge is celebrating another aspect of craft alcohol with the inaugural Craft Spirits Festival.

The festival runs through tomorrow; today's highlight is the Downtown Pub Crawl & Poker Run, which starts at 4 p.m. You can pick up a free passbook at the Gold Pan Saloon and drink your way through town, collecting a poker hand as you go (the best hand wins Colorado-crafted artisan spirits). Stick around tomorrow for the poker showdown and the Still on the Hill Grand Tasting. For information, go to
