Bluegrass and Beer

What’s on tap in August? Beer, beer and more Colorado beer. The 21st Annual Keystone Bluegrass and Beer Festival will serve up more than 100 brews from 40-plus Colorado breweries August 5th and 6th.

Keystone brings the wonders of Appalachia to the Rockies. Down-home cooking, frothy flavors and mountain music are just a piece of the pie. In a whirlwind of hillbilly luxuries, folks gather while 40+ craft breweries from Colorado and beyond showcase their unique blends of hops and barleys. Live music kicks up on three stages and the “best of the best” grace us with their presence throughout the two days.

This year’s 2017 rocking Bluegrass Line-Up includes The Lonesome Days, The Wooks, The River Arkansas, Liver Down the River, Wood & Wire, The Railsplitters, Brothers Comatose and back for another year headliner Peter Rowan Band and more!

Back this year, beer lovers can vote in the battle of the brews social media throw down by tweeting, instagramming or posting their favorite #Colorado brew with the hashtag #keystonebestbrew. The brew with the most social votes will be crowned the festival’s “Best Brew.”
