The Colorado Brewers Guild (CBG) announced the return of Collaboration Fest on Saturday, March 25, 2023 at The Westin Westminster. The state’s most creative and collaborative all-inclusive beer tasting is a beloved CBG fundraiser that is celebrating its eighth year. Tickets sales will be announced at a later time.
“For Collaboration Fest this year we chose The Westin in Westminster because it is centrally located from both Denver and Boulder,” says CBG Events and Marketing Manager Michelle Baldwin. “It’s a gorgeous venue with a lot of options to enhance the event and we feel confident that Collaboration Fest will continue to be the relaxed and intimate experience that craft beer lovers have come to know and love.”
Established in 2014, Collaboration Fest is the original collaboration beer festival where Colorado Brewers Guild members team up with brewers near and far to create one-of-a-kind beers that will be poured at the festival.
The collaborations, which typically start immediately once brewers sign up and occur all winter long through spring, tell a larger story that is born out of mutual admiration, highlights each brewer’s distinct brewing methods, and can sometimes even span multiple continents.
To celebrate the creativity of Collaboration Fest, the Telluride Blues & Brews Festival Sept. 15-18 will be showcasing collaborations at the State of Craft Beer booth featuring:
- Ska Brewing and Telluride Brewing Company
- Telluride Brewing Company, Stronghouse Brew Pub, and Smugglers-Union Brewery
- 4 Noses Brewing and Telluride Brewing Company
- Jagged Mountain Craft Brewery and Lady Justice Brewing Company
“Brewers love Collaboration Fest as much as beer lovers do! It’s a great place for fans of the industry to chat directly with brewers and get to know the local brewing community,” says Baldwin. “If you love craft beer, you won’t want to miss this festival, so mark your calendars!”
