What is Firkin? Well, it’s Bristol Brewing’s Firkin Rendezvous of course! Think of tons of your favorite Colorado Brewers Guild members, a bunch of craft beer fans and more firkins than you can shake a stick at! Check out last year’s festivities if you need a refresher: 2015, 2014.
This year is the 12th annual Firkin Rendezvous, and to accommodate the expanding nature of the fest, Bristol is expanding the perimeters! No longer will you be sequestered, shoulder to shoulder with your closest friends, but they promise more space and more beer!
Some reasons to attend:
- There’s a ton of one-off beers you won’t find anywhere else.
- The VIP food(It’s worth the extra admission…like Lamb Stew from McCabes in past years.)
- It benefits the Colorado Brewers Guild, who work tirelessly to support homegrown craft beer here in the state of Colorado.
Yeah, pretty self explanatory. Be there.
