A taste of Colorado, bluegrass and beer



It's that Starkbierzeit time of year for Germany and for Woodland Park — but one of the great things about Colorado is you don't have to wear lederhosen to enjoy BierWerks Brewery's "Winterbier Fest 2012", a Munich-inspired festival for "strong beer season" in the early spring. Or, in this case, Saturday, Feb. 25, from noon to 4 p.m.

BierWerks Brewery is hosting the event at the Ute Pass Cultural Center for its second year running, drawing local brewers such as AC Golden, Arvada, Bristol, Del Norte, Dry Dock, Durango, Ska and Odell as well as beer from its own brewery. Woodland Park Arts Alliance Wine Tasting is holding a simultaneous event at the Cultural Center, ensuring a nice afternoon of inebriation for all of age. Not that inebriation is the point, of course. But you know how these things go.

Tickets are $25 in advance (bierwerks.com) or $30 at the door and include entry, snacks, live music from Woodland Park-born bluegrass group Big Valley String Band, a souvenir mug to commemorate the afternoon, and plenty of beer to fill said mug. Naturally.
