Rye Fest 2015
Rye the hell not! That was the general thought passed around between The Bob, Chain Reaction Brewing and Black Sky Brewery when the idea of putting on a small festival that would include only hand crafted brews with some type of rye addition.

As the 3 breweries met and put together ideas for the fest it was clear that Black Sky Brewery would be the perfect venue to host this first year event. Not only does Black Sky have the ability to accept all the beers entered into the festival they also have the ability to provide food and brew a unique collaboration beer specifically designed with rye fest in mind. Adding a collaboration element to this fest was an important feature since it will be held during Colorado Craft Beer week.

The collaboration beer will be a rye pale ale that used the additions of pale rye, flaked rye and crystal rye malts and a generous 30 minute continuous hopping using a special blend of various earthy and spicy hops that truly make this brew a 1 of a kind that will never be brewed again. Below you will find details about Rye Fest, if you have any additional question or would like to set up an interview about the fest just let me know.

Event Details

Date: March 28th
Time: 1pm-5pm
Location: Black Sky Brewery
Price: $35 includes admission, unlimited tasters, and rye fest pint glass

o Portion of the proceeds will be donated to MaxFund No Kill animal shelter and adoption center
o Tickets are available at participating breweries
