22nd Annual Keystone Bluegrass and Beer Festival

The longest running craft beer event in the state, the Keystone Bluegrass and Beer Festival, returns Aug. 4-5 to Keystone Resort with 45 breweries, 13 bands on 3 different stages and the ultimate Corn Hole Championship with New Belgium Brewing Company. You won’t want to miss the swing set bar complete with oversized lawn games and an interactive sour seminar courtesy of New Belgium.

Another highlight, says Russer, is the craft beer sampling in River Run Village with 45 breweries and an estimated 150 varieties of beer. Participating breweries include Colorado natives like – New Belgium Brewing, Boulder Beer Company, Eddyline Brewery, Telluride Brewing Company, Upslope Brewing, Lone Tree Brewing Company and Joyride Brewing Company – as well as Summit County locals like – Pug Ryan’s, Dillon Dam, Breckenridge Brewery, The Baker’s Brewery and, the newest additions, Angry James Brewing Company and High Side Brewery.

 

To kick off this epic Keystone weekend of bluegrass and beer, the Shaky Hand String Band will perform on Friday night at Warren Station’s “Eat, Drink, Pick” Beer Maker’s Pairing with New Belgium Brewing. Guests will eat, drink and pick their way through specialty New Belgium beers paired perfectly with six dishes prepared by Summit County favorite, Chef Chris Rybak all while tapping a toe to some local bluegrass. Tickets are $60 per person in advance, $70 at the door at 7:30 p.m. on Friday, Aug. 3.
