San Juan Brewfest: What you need to know

by DGO Web Administrator

Ah, beer festivals. The perfect setting for day drinking and debauchery. Sampling and swilling beer is less snobby than slurping down wine, and beer is definitely the favored form of booze in Durango. Whether you’re a serious beer connoisseur or just looking to get drunk (hey, no shame in that), here is everything you need to know about this Saturday’s San Juan Brewfest in Buckley Park.

About the festThere will be 54 craft breweries and distilleries in attendance, and each will bring at least two different beers. You can sample as many beers as you want from your souvenir 5 oz. tasting glass. There will also be live music and food vendors. No dogs and no one under 21 admitted.

The new brewery participants this year are Barrel Brewing Co. (Bend, OR), Ballast Point Brewing and Spirits (San Diego), Big Sky Brewing Co. (Missoula, MT), Crazy Mountain Brewing Co.
