The Big Beers, Belgians & Barleywines Festival is a three-day celebration of craft beer held in the majestic Rocky Mountains of Colorado. Designed as a specialty beer festival focused on education, the Big Beers Festival also offers attendees the opportunity to enjoy the winter playground of Breckenridge, Colorado and has become a destination event for beer lovers and connoisseurs around the globe.
If you love craft beer, you must come have dinner with us! 2020 dining events include the celebrity beer pairing dinner, traditional Brewmaster's Dinner, and The Small Plates & Craft Beer Pairing. All dining events pair two beers (one from each brewery) with each course on the custom menus.
The educational component of our festival weekend has grown over the last twenty years and now attracts as much attention as the commercial tasting itself. Seminars include the Cicerone Workshop (no ticket required), sensory style seminars with food pairing, experimental brewing, and even yoga.
The commercial tasting will give you a taste of extremely diverse and international beers. You'll have a chance to enjoy more than 400 amazing beers from over 150 different breweries, some only available at the Big Beers Festival.
