This summer Sierra Nevada Brewing Co. is inviting every craft brewery in the nation to take part in their “Beer Camp Across America” Tour. The third stop on the 7-leg tour will be their “Rocky Mountain Edition” at the Civic Center Park in Denver, Colorado on Friday, July 25th.
The tour launches on the west coast in Chico, California on July 19th, moving east and ending August 3rd to celebrate the opening of Sierra Nevada’s new east coast brewery in Mills River, North Carolina.
Currently, over 100 craft breweries across America are signed up to participate in the Rocky Mountain stop’s weekend festivities. You can see a complete list of the breweries (updated frequently) here: Sierra Nevada’s Denver Beer Camp Brewery List.
Date: Friday, July 25th
Location: Denver, Colorado
Venue: Civic Center Park
Ticket Cost: $65 G/A $30 Designated Driver
“We’re about to open a second brewery in North Carolina, and while that’s exciting for us, it’s an even greater reason to celebrate the future of craft brewers everywhere. We’ve watched and learned from each other for decades, and together we’ve seen tastes change and craft’s momentum snowball. Beer Camp Across America is our way of reflecting on this—with thousands of brewers, fans and great beers. It should be pretty fun.” -Ken Grossman, Sierra Nevada Founder
Each festival will feature up to two beers per brewery, food vendors, and live music. Tickets are now on sale at www.SierraNevada.com/BeerCamp and are limited to 5,000 per venue. Tickets cost $65 for general admission, which includes a tasting glass and unlimited tastings (in most locations). A designated driver ticket is available for $30. Ticket prices are exclusive of taxes and fees, which will vary according to location.
Best of all, “Beer Camp Across America” is a giveback program, with proceeds going to the state brewers guilds in the festival host states. Funds will also go to hop and barley research in order to “foster the development of new types of hop varieties and barley crops to fuel the pursuit of new flavor experiences for the ever-expanding tastes of craft drinkers”.
