Green. Beer. Fest.

Saturday, September 27, 2014
Boulder Bandshell - 1212 Canyon Blvd.
Boulder, CO

Time: 2:00pm - 10:00pm

Cost: Free to attend, Beer cup: $30 advance, $40 at the door

Formerly called the Frack Free Brew Festival. Now in its second year, the Green. Beer. Fest. is a day long Colorado craft beer + creative mashup hosted in Boulder, Colorado. Created by Wade M. Norris, the Green. Beer. Fest. unites Colorado's microbreweries, indie musicians, farmers, pioneering people and companies working across industries doing epic things to save the world (aka sustainable innovation).

The 2014 Green. Beer. Fest. theme + campaign is 'Edge of the Unexpected'. This may be the one time you can come and fully live out your '7 deadly sins' without getting punished for it! The name Green. Beer. Fest. is a double entendre: green = eco + natural herbs, beer = craft brews, fest = live music + living exhibits. We hope that the eclectic and chill vibe will bring together wicked cool people like us - who sincerely CARE about - healing, saving lives and making the world a better place regardless of their background or affiliation(s).

17th Annual GABF Tapping Party!

Join Falling Rock Tap House, Denver, Colorado at 5:00pm, as they celebrate the Great American Beer Festival in their own special way! This will be their 17th Tapping Party featuring many of the great beers they are are known for carrying as well as some special kegs including new, fun and one-off beers from their friends. Be there early to get a good spot for watching the clock count down to zero and toast the start of one of the Greatest Weeks in Beer!

Cost is whatever you buy to eat and drink (there are no tickets, no special rates or fees or anything like that). Parking fills up fast, so be aware of that, there is no baseball to worry about at least.

There will be a tent covering the parking lot our neighbors own in front of our place where you will be able to sit eat and drink. Chris Black has made this annual event a fun party for the locals before the judges and out-of-state brewers start arriving and it is now a reason for many of them to come into town early. Low key, good beer good people good food and some pretty cool surprises as well, including a closer look at some of the special beers they will pour during the rest of the week.
