Local winners include Paradox, Cerberus, Iron Bird, Pikes Peak, JAKs, Phantom Canyon and Smiling Toad

This past Saturday was the 11th iteration of the All Colorado Beer Festival. We hope you got a chance to go!

After ten years in the Mortgage Solutions Financial building, they moved it across town to the Norris Penrose Event Center because the city is building a cybersecurity facility in the old space.

From what we could tell, they didn’t skip a beat and the new space will be home to many beer festivals to come. This year, Colorado Springs and local area brewers really cleaned up at the regional event.

Thirteen of the 52 medals awarded went to brewers who brew in the shadow of Pikes Peak and Paradox Beer Company won Best of Show. That’s a great showing! Congrats to everyone who won!
