Early PreBrew: BrüFrouFEST 2017

There are some amazing pairs in the world that work together to make something great!  Peanut Butter & Jelly. Milk & Cookies. However, when I think of pairs I love I think BEER and FOOD!

Amazing beers and food can be enhanced by the unique combination of flavors which can completely change how you taste a dish or a beer. The craft of pairing is one that is worth following and enjoying! While looking for more events with pairings of beer and food, I found something... a brewfest that is the largest pairing event in the country..... BRÜFROUFEST!

This festival takes place July 16th, 2017 and located at the Tivoli Quad, this event touts itself as the largest event of its kind in the country. With over 120 Chefs & Brewers & Mixoligists, 80 pairings of beer and food and 6 bands, this event seems to be right up my alley. The bands span over several music genres such as Bluegrass, Jazz and more styles are scheduled to be playing while the guests try different mixes from local and other brewers & culinary geniuses. It also takes place outdoors which will be amazing as the summer days continue to be beautiful in Colorado. 

The beer offerings include a multitude of great breweries like Copper Kettle Brewing Company, Odd 13 Brewing and Fiction Beer Company. There are a few pairings that are exclusive to the VIP session and pricing varies based on how many pairing you want. There is a token system and with GA you get 8 tokens included in your ticket price. You can also purchase additional tokens in 4 packs for 10$ for full pairing and 5 packs for 10$ for just food. Meanwhile, the VIP access offers everything from all pairings without tokens and the exclusive 20 pairings!
