Here are some of the breweries who will be joining us this year:

ABOUT THEM...At Breckenridge Brewery we pride ourselves in offering a year-round, mainline beer selection that includes something for everyone. And now, when a classic Belgian witbier is what you're craving - we've got you covered. Our brand new White Ale officially takes it's place next to #breckbrew staples like Vanilla Porter, Avalanche Amber and Hop Peak IPA. Like we said - something for everyone!

Eddyline Brewery from Buena Vista is a newcomer to the festival this year. With their goal of serving "exceptionally drinkable beers suited for any outdoor adventure," we're excited to see what they will share with us!
Joining us for the 9th year in a row, is Oskar Blues!

THE ORIGINAL CRAFT BEER IN A CAN!

In 2002, our funky little Colorado grown brew-pub started stuffing our huge, voluminously hopped mutha of a pale ale in a can (Dale’s Pale Ale). That not only began the craft-beer-in-a-can craze, but has grown to add a brewery to the hills of Pisgah National Forest in Brevard, NC and another in the Live Music Capital of the World, Austin, TX, in 2016. Cans keep beer fresher, longer by eliminating the damaging effects of light and ingressed oxygen while being infinitely recyclable and portable…taking them where your next soul saving adventure takes you.


Telluride Brewing Co Will join us for the first time, Welcome!!

AT THE END OF THE DAY,
It’s ALL about the BEER
Adventure brought us to these mountains. Friendship made us stay. Community made Telluride our home. These beers bring the best of these to you.

Our beer comes straight from Rocky Mountain snow melt and is made from premium malts, hops, and yeasts that create rich aromas and smooth-tasting flavors.

Please join us in celebrating the special spirit of Telluride from one of the highest microbreweries in the world.


El Rancho Brewing Co., our neighbors in Evergreen will be joining us again this year! Their brewers have some cleverly named brews such as I-70 IPA, Tree Hugger, Bergen Blonde, Hot Tubbin' Cub and more. We can hardly wait to see what they bring for us to taste! "Old World Brews with Colorado Soul!" Green Mountain Beer Company in Lakewood is joining the fest for the first time this year. Can't wait to see what they bring for us to enjoy!

New Belgium Brewing joins us for the 9th visit to OBF, thank you for your continued support and great beers!

The other side of the New Belgium story might not seem as romantic as bicycling through Europe; but it gives testament to our dedication, hard work and continuous push for invention. It goes like this:

Jeff’s Belgian inspired brews garnered enough praise from friends and neighbors that Jeff and Kim took their basement brewery commercial in 1991. Kim, social worker by day and mother to two always, began the marketing process by knocking on their neighbor's door. Artist Anne Fitch was that neighbor, whose watercolors came to help craft the New Belgium brand for 25 years, including the original Fat Tire label. Our new Fat Tire cruiser is still handcrafted by a painter, Leah Giberson, but this time it's photorealism instead of a watercolor.

Bringing on Peter Bouckaert, a Belgian Brewmaster previously working at Rodenbach, in 1996 helped influence our love of sour beers. Moving forward, Peter would take the brewing reins as Jeff began pursuing other interests. In 2009, Jeff moved on completely and we have continued to flourish with Kim, Peter, and a team of dedicated employee-owners at the helm.


"Colorado provided the background, we brought the beer."
Upslope Brewing Co out of Boulder will be at OBF for the 9th year in a row!

APRÈS EVERYTHING...
Matt, Dany and Henry are three guys with a passion for two things: living life outdoors and brewing the perfect beer to cap off any adventure. That’s where the idea of Après Everything was born. Drawn not just to skiing, but to anything over the Rockies and under the sky, Après Everything makes Upslope a hand-held tribute to all who believe playing hard should end with a quality beer that goes down easy.

Some more great breweries joining us tomorrow - hope to see you there!


We welcome Tommy Knocker Brewery out of Idaho Springs back for their 9th year with us!

For more than 20 years, Tommyknocker Brewery has been passionately crafting award winning ales and lagers. TKB has been awarded over 100 medals from a multitude of local, national, and international competitions.

Tommyknocker is dedicated to our community and our environment. We partner with local organizations to raise money for great causes and promote local industry. We're also a "GREEN" brewery employing a comprehensive recycling program and utilizing renewable energy.


Ska returns to OBF this year on the heels of a Gold Medal win at Great American Beer Fest for their Oktoberfest, a Vienna-style Lager. Let's hope they bring it for us all to try!


Fresh, Genuine, Balanced.

Colorado Cider Company is Denver's original cidery, making award-winning fresh pressed ciders since 2011.

We look forward to some fabulous cider choices from this Colorado based company!


Former fan favorite at OBF is returning brewery, Boston Beer Co. with their delicious Sam Adams Octoberfest brew!

Looking to follow his family’s passion for brewing, Jim brewed the recipe in his kitchen with the hopes of challenging the status quo in the American beer industry. He started by introducing American drinkers to craft-brewed beers that were full-flavored, balanced, and complex, and brewed with quality ingredients. Pleased with his brew, Jim started The Boston Beer Company with his co-founder and first employee, Rhonda Kallman. In those first months, Jim walked bar-to-bar with a briefcase full of beer that he called Samuel Adams Boston Lager, in recognition of one of our nation's great founding fathers, a revolutionary man of independent mind and spirit. Boston Lager soon became a catalyst of the American craft beer revolution, making its public debut in Boston on Patriot's Day in April 1985. Six weeks after its introduction, Boston Lager was selected as "The Best Beer in America" in The Great American Beer Festival's Consumer Preference Poll, which became an award Samuel Adams Boston Lager went on to win an unprecedented four times.


Evergreen Brewery & Taproom will join us this year, welcome! They feature brews such as Elk Meadow IPA and Palisade Peach Milkshake IPA. We are excited to see what beer they will share!


Stone Brewing will be joining us once again this year. Always a popular beer with OBF participants.

Founded by Greg Koch and Steve Wagner, Stone Brewing has come a long way since opening up in San Diego, California in 1996. We have been listed on the Inc. 500 | 5000 Fastest Growing Private Companies list 11 times, and has been called the “All-time Top Brewery on Planet Earth” by BeerAdvocate magazine twice. Stone Brewing is the eighth-largest craft brewer in the U.S. and with our breweries in Richmond, Virginia & Berlin, Germany, we join artisanal brewers across the world in the quest to show the public that there are more…and better…choices beyond the world of industrial beer.


Sierra Nevada Brewing joins us for their 9th visit to OBF, welcome back!

In the early 1980's, there was no such thing as small-scale or micro brewery equipment. Everything needed for a brewery had to be repurposed or custom built. Founder, Ken Grossman spent months driving through rural dairy communities throughout California and Oregon searching out scrap stainless steel tanks and equipment to use. He taught himself refrigeration and welding and fashioned most of the new brewery out of recycled dairy equipment. The fledgling brewery was finished in the fall of 1980, and Ken needed a brew to test out the hand-built equipment. His first batch of beer was an American Stout. In the following decades, the recipe for Sierra Nevada Stout has changed very little from that day.


Alaskan Brewing Co. will be joining us again this year, welcome back!

Brewing with history...
Alaska has a rich history of brewing. From the explorers of the 1700s through the Gold Rush, many a thirsty Alaskan has been able to enjoy locally made beers.

In 1986, 28-year-olds Marcy and Geoff Larson reignited that tradition when they opened the Alaskan Brewing Company, the 67th independent brewery in the country and the first brewery in Juneau since Prohibition. Alaskan beers reflect many of the same characteristics of beers that were brewed here during the gold rush era. From the historically based Alaskan Amber recipe to alder-smoked malts and Sitka spruce tips, Alaskan beers reflect Juneau’s local brewing history and innovation.


New to OBF this year is Hop Valley Brewing Co. from Eugene, Oregon.

At Hop Valley our brewers are passionate about their craft and obsessive in their pursuit of the perfect beer. And they understand when it's time to step back and let the fine malts and best Northwest hops speak for themselves. From the get-go our goal has been to offer a range of beers to ensure that, no matter your tastes, we had something delicious with which to whet your whistle. Our brewers have experience and talents that span the spectrum of beers, and if they had their way they would be brewing them all.
