Colorado Brewfest

Colorado Brewers Festival (Brewfest) Ft. Collins Colorado.  This was the 22nd anual meeting of Colorado Craft Beer brewers, where you could sample their bounty.  This is where small, unknown craft breweries get their start.  New Belgium Ale’s “Fat Tire Amber Ale” was unveiled here 20 years ago and it is now the third-largest craft brewery and seventh-largest overall brewery in the US!!!  A lot has changed since then…now the cover is $15, designated drivers get in free and you buy $1 tokens which you turn in at the various vendors to sample their beer, 4 oz at a time.  There were three stages set up with various types of music and lots of different food.  Of course, when J saw “Monkey Balls” he had to try them…  Who knows what they really were……
