Big Beers Belgians & Barleywines Launches Craft Your Own Celebration

Big Beers 2020

It’s been no secret around these parts that the Big Beer Belgians and Barleywines Festival is widely regarded as one of the most celebrated beer fest experiences in the country. However, with this past year and 2022’s back-to-back cancellations, both as a result of COVID, it’ll likely mean a full three-year hiatus before attendees will get an opportunity to enjoy rare high ABV beers at even higher altitudes.

But all is not lost, as the team behind Big Beers has recently announced a program that’ll allow long-time fans to channel their inner Big Beers experience from wherever they’re located. 2022’s  “Craft Your Own Big Beers” has partnered with more than 90 breweries to share a lineup of beers that can be found at taprooms or retail locations so fans can create their own Big Beers experience remotely.

“Since we can’t gather in person, we really wanted to provide the inspiration and motivation for Big Beers brewers and fans to celebrate wherever they are,” says Laura Lodge, Big Beers Educational Foundation Executive Director. 

“It’s about keeping the energy and spirit alive, supporting each other, and continuing to spread the word about the unusual and amazing big (7% abv), Belgian (in style), and experimental beers these artisans continue to create.”

To help fans keep tabs on all Craft Your Own Big Beers experiences available during that first week in January, Laura and her team have partnered with the Digital Pour app to help with listing each brewery’s promotions. They’ve also partnered with event sponsors, Brewery Finance and Antigo Zeon, and artist Misty Gordon Creative to produce a new 2022 commemorative shirt, which is now available for ordering.

The Craft Your Own Program is now LIVE via the Digital Pour app and website, with participating breweries (also found below) as well as beers already listed.
