2nd year in a row we broadcasted from the Highlands Ranch Beer Festival. This time around we had between 50 and 60 breweries and about 250 more people. This has sold out the last two years as well as the craft beer revolution is strong in the south metro! The Thirsty German, Nicol Winkler was the special co host for this one! We led off with Jamie Noebel who is the Community Relations Manager for the HRCA. We talked about the fest and about the beneficiary of the funds raised which is the Highlands Ranch Community Scholarship Fund. Next up was Peggy Lyle who is the Event and Entertainment Director for the Downtown Fort Collins Business Administration. They put on the Colorado Brewers Festival in downtown Ft. Collins which this year turns 25 years old. A ton of new added features and events to the fest and they are giving away free beer for a year to a lucky person that registers online for some festival bucks. This is a 3 day event that runs June 27th through June 29th. We then chatted with Todd Thibault from Breckenridge Brewery as he was down in Pagosa Springs for the Blues and Bluegrass Fest. They have some cool events coming up including their 24th anniversary Hottenanny on July 12th.

In hour two we led off with Jerod Hutchison and Jason Wiley from the Colorado Keg House which is set to open at the end of the month in Broomfield by the First Bank Center.  They will have 75 all Colorado taps and all beers will be just 5 bucks. These guys are going to rock in on the 36 corridor! Next up was Alex Ogrinz who is the event specialist for Upslope Brewing Company. We talked about their new beers, the Get Down and much more. And finally, we nailed down Jodie Whealy form Ska Brewing. This is about as rare as a Yeti sighting. Was an honor to get her on and talk about all things Ska. Their 19th anniversary is coming up in September and should be a blast as always! We closed the show with Brew News You Can Use as there is never a dull moment in the state in great beer! Big thanks to Amanda Arnce for the invite and for putting on such a great festival as well as the amazing staff that made this one seamless! We are grateful to broadcast here each year!
