Coloradans get into the holiday spirit with beer

FORT COLLINS, Colo. -- The Anheuser-Bush Fort Collins brewery is helping Coloradans get into the holiday spirit.

The brewery launched its second year of the festive light display on Thursday.

From now until Dec. 30, guests visiting the brewery on Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays will be greeted with thousands of holiday lights.

On Thursday, the switch was flipped to kick off the holiday event. A crowd watched in awe as the light display and the holiday music turned on. On site were the famous Budweiser Clydesdales.

The event has something special for just about every member of the family. For the adults, there are complimentary beer samples. For those who are in the mood for something warm and sweet, there is complimentary hot cocoa.

Food is also available for purchase at the brewery’s Biergarten. Families can purchase s’more kits and roast marshmallows by an open fire.

Kids can venture through a tree maze. The experience is free to brewery visitors. For more information on closure dates and locations visit Brewerylights.com.
