The last big brew boom began about 3 years here in Fort Collins with the newest wave of smaller craft breweries. But before we had Equinox, Grimm Brothers and Funkwerks we had the Fall Harvest Brewfest. A benefit to raise funds Animal House Shelter, the fest is happening for the 5th time this year. The 5th Annual Fall Harvest Brewfest will be held this Friday, September 6th at the Lincoln Center in Old Town Fort Collins. Tickets are still available online and at the door.
The fest has grown as the area’s beer culture has boomed. Sponsored by Wilbur’s Total Beverage, the fest includes over 40 local brewers and distillers such as Lefthand Brewing, City Star and Feisty Spirits. New this year will also be a food truck section featuring Umami, Common Link and the Waffle Lab, offering samples to pair with your beer or full meals for market price. There will also be food pairing samples from other local restaurants such as Mo Jeaux’, Cheba Hut and Chimney Park. If food and beer isn’t enough for you, live music will be playing all night from Winchester Holiday.
Make sure to visit their website to purchase tickets, check out the line up and find out more about Animal House Shelter.
