2017 Grand Tasting Beer Styles

Saturday, September 16, 2017 from 12:00 - 3:00 pm

It's here! The comprehensive list of all the different beers that will be at the 2017 Telluride Blues & Brews Festival Grand Tasting has been released. Join us on Saturday, September 16 from 12 pm - 3 pm to celebrate the craftsmanship and excellence of craft beer. Explore a vast offering of a dynamic variety of flavors in over 170 styles of beer and cider brought to you by 56 of the best craft breweries from around America.

As you walk into the beautiful Telluride Town Park Festival Grounds you’ll be greeted with a special souvenir tasting glass. This tasting glass is your vessel to sample some of the best craft beer in the world. Costumes, high-fives, smiles and massive crowd-wide cheers are all frequent. After you’ve tried as many beers as you like, it will be time to vote for your favorite brewery. When the Tasting is over, the brewery with the most votes will be crowned "Best of Fest" winner and awarded a trophy on stage. Last year’s champion, Avalanche Brewing Company from Silverton, Colorado, is back this year to defend their title!
