As the craft beer scene continues to grow, the Telluride Blues & Brews Festival continues to receive an overwhelming number of Grand Tasting Brewer applications! The list has been narrowed down and we’re thrilled to announce the 2018 Grand Tasting Brewery lineup. These 56 breweries will pour over 170 styles of beer and cider on Saturday, September 15 from Noon to 3pm. Cheers!

If you haven’t experienced the Grand Tasting yet you're missing out! As you walk into the beautiful Telluride Town Park Festival Grounds you’re handed a special souvenir tasting glass. This tasting glass is your vessel to sample some of the best craft beer in the world. From easy-drinking lagers, to fruity sours and hazy IPAs, the variety of beer styles are endless, while costumes, high-fives, smiles and massive crowd-wide cheers are all frequent. After you’ve tried as many beers as you like, it's time to vote for your favorite brewery. When the Tasting is over, the most popular brewery is crowned "Best of Fest" and awarded a trophy on stage. Last year’s champion and hometown favorites, Telluride Brewing Company, is back this year to defend their title!

Throughout the brewery lineup, you'll find national favorites, local treasures and highly acclaimed up-and-coming microbreweries. Long-time festival partner, Sierra Nevada, will be serving up delicious flavors all weekend long including classics and rare creations like the exclusive, Beer Camp special - Back Porch Lager (only available at Telluride Blues & Brews Festival).

Big B’s Hard Cider, Bonfire Brewing, Durango Brewing, Ska Brewing and Telluride Brewing will also be serving select beers throughout the weekend alongside Sierra Nevada in the House of Brews.

2018 tickets go on sale next Thursday, March 1st at 10:00 am (MT). Don’t miss out on the opportunity to purchase limited VIP and Early Bird Passes. Cheers and we'll see you this September 15th at the Grand Tasting!
