There will also be live music from Andy Hackbarth (12:30 – 2:30 p.m.) and The Hill Benders (3 – 5 p.m.). Boulder Craft Beer Festival will be held in West Central Park from 12-5 on August 23.

It’s about time Boulder had a craft beer festival of its own! All of the breweries are great, but I am especially excited that a few of my personal favorites will be in attendance that day. I’m looking at you, Fate, Sanitas, and Gravity.

Designated driver tickets are available for $10 and include 5 non-alcoholic beverages and a $10 food ticket for the food vendors on site. And, in celebration of the USA Pro Cycling Challenge Stage 7 start on Sun., Aug. 24, the Boulder Craft Beer Festival encourages attendees to cycle to the event where a Boulder B-Cycle valet bike parking station will be on site for a $1 donation. Cyclists donating $5 will receive a Boulder B-Cycle PolarBottle in addition to valet parking.
