The Colorado Brewers Rendezvous is back for 2021.
After a one-year absence due to the OCVID-19 pandemic, the Colorado Brewers Guild (CBG) together with the Salida Chamber of Commerce, the 25th Annual Colorado Brewers Rendezvous will take place on Saturday, October 2 in Riverside Park.
Coming back for its third year, the Brewers Rendezvous Pre-Vous, an intimate gathering featuring light food and 20 breweries pouring exclusive beers not available at the Brewers Rendezvous, will occur the night before, on October 1 at the historic Salida Steam Plant Theater.
Tickets for both events are on sale now online. Tickets, which cost $40 for the Brewers Rendezvous Pre-Vous from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. on October 1 are limited to 100 people. General admission tickets cost $55 and VIP tickets cost $110 for the Brewers Rendezvous from 1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. on October 2, with VIP entry starting at 12 noon.
Rooted in camaraderie and tradition, the Colorado Brewers Rendezvous is unlike any other craft beer fest, stemming from the Colorado Brewers Guild’s desire to find a place for brewers to gather and conduct their annual meeting.
Since many brewers were already attending the Salida Beer Festival in 1995, Salida became the impromptu meeting grounds for their membership meeting. Since then, the Brewers Rendezvous has been a cherished craft beer festival and fundraiser for both the CBG and Salida Chamber of Commerce for 25 years.
A list of participating breweries will be provided soon.
Last year, due to COVID-19 festival organizers canceled the highly popular craft beer event. Per local regulations, this will be a reduced capacity event. Mask wearing will not be enforced. All vendors and staff will be fully vaccinated. Festival organizers encourage all attendees to be fully vaccinated and stay home if they are not feeling well.
