Event Recap | 2016 Vail Big Beers, Belgians & BarleywinesJanuary 12, 2016 | Tristan Chan
This piece was written and composed by PorchDrinking.com staff Tristan Chan, Cory Pelc, Kelissa Heiber, Kara Loo, Phil Joyce, Will Dozier, and Desiree Duzich with special contribution from Brittany Werges of 303 Magazine.
In a lot of ways, looking back on the 2016 Vail Big Beers Belgians and Barleywines festival is fairly cut and dry. Everything was amazing. It really is that simple. And yet, I’d be disappointing not only myself, but more importantly organizer Laura Lodge, by leaving you with merely a singular over-the-top statement about the fest. I dare not use the word hyperbole because while my descriptions may seem gratuitous, they are one hundred percent truthful.
Event Preview | 2016 Vail Big Beers Belgians & BarleywinesJanuary 4, 2016 | Tristan Chan
If you’ve followed PorchDrinking over the years, you’ll have already know that the Vail Big Beers Belgians & Barleywines (VBBB) festival is our favorite event each year. Enveloped by world class ski terrain, and picturesque mountain vistas, VBBB has become truly a destination event, one that is more prominently bolstered by all-star celebrity brewer attendees, premiere educational seminars, a home brew competition, calibration dinner, and most importantly, one of the preeminent lineups of breweries and rare beers on the festival circuit.
This year Vail Big Beers Belgians and Barleywines returns for its 16th iteration, featuring classic headline names in the industry who always bring the house like, Avery, Dogfish Head, Goose Island, Bells, Great Divide, Perennial, etc, as well as several prominent rising newcomers like Arizona Wilderness, Jackie O’s, and Wicked Weed to name a few. Organizer Laura Lodge was kind enough to share the tentative list of attending breweries for this year’s commercial tasting taking place Saturday, January 9 from 2:30 – 6 p.m. *Update, the commercial tasting has officially sold out online however tickets are still available at select liquor stores in the Vail Valley including: Alpine Wine & Spirits (West Vail), West Vail LiquorMart (West Vail), Avon Liquors (Avon), Beaver Liquors (Avon), Riverwalk Wine & Spirits (Edwards), Wine & Wort Home Brew Shop (Eagle)* Read More
