Here's the Pour List for Rapids and Grass

This weekend is the Third iteration of Buena Vista’s premier beer and music festival and we’ve got the beers.

Spend your weekend nestled amongst 14,000-foot peaks along the Arkansas River, sampling beers from more than 50 breweries and jamming to live bluegrass music at the Rapids & Grass Beer Festival in Buena Vista, Colorado. The 3rd Annual festival is set for Friday, June 28 to Sunday, June 30, 2019 with the beer tasting on Saturday, June 29th.

“This uniquely Colorado weekend is a blend of all things we love about our state: mountain living, craft beer, bluegrass music, and river sports,” says Rapids & Grass Festival Director Sarah Stewart.

The 2019 brewery lineup features some of the best breweries in Colorado, the intermountain west, and beyond. See the full list below but expect to see the likes of Beachwood Brewing, Two Roads, La Cumbre, WeldWerks, Outer Range, Black Project, Cannonball Creek, Comrade, and many more.

Live music will kick off on Friday night at The Beach stage along the Arkansas River with Head for the Hills headlining. Bluegrass bands will be performing throughout the beer tasting on Saturday, culminating with Rapidgrass as the headliner that evening. This year’s festival will once again incorporate After Party Shows in the Ivy Ballroom at the Surf Hotel. Tickets for the Ivy Ballroom shows must be purchased separately from Rapids & Grass Beer Festival tickets, through the Surf Hotel website. Bands will be announced in the coming weeks.

“We are excited to welcome back Colorado’s own Head For The Hills. They will be coming off a fresh album release!” says Mark Morris, Music Coordinator for Rapids & Grass Beer Festival. “We are also excited about welcoming the exquisite vocal harmonies of Lovers Leap from Asheville, NC.”

After a great day of craft beer and bluegrass music, sleep under the stars with a variety of camping options located a quick walk away from the festival venue. A new grassy camping area features walk-in tent sites with gorgeous views to the Collegiate Peaks. New this year is Riverside VIP camping for both tents and RVs.
