So you might have heard, Fort Collins is into Beer.
Like really into beer.
We’ve been called the Napa Valley of Beer on several occasions.
In Fort Collins alone we have 14 breweries in town, 1 in Berthoud, 3 in Greeley, 6 in Loveland, and 1 in Windsor. That just covers Northern Colorado.
Beyond just going to the breweries or trying a 6-pack from a local liquor store is all the festivals and events we have as a result of our beer.
Just yesterday was the Tour De Fat of Fort Collins, put together by New Belgium it’s a day of beer, bikes, costumes, and revelry in Old Town.
Then in just a few weeks we will have FortTober Fest- the Fort Collins version of October Fest-which has become am American tradition off of the German one. Dig out those Dirndls and Lederhosen! This will be September 19th and 20th.
And of course if you want to have your own shindig we have some books for you.
