The San Juan Brewfest is the biggest and best beer tasting festival in the Four Corners. It typically features up to 50 breweries, over 100 beers to taste, live music, and benefits United Way of Southwest Colorado. It is always held on the Saturday before Labor Day weekend in Downtown Durango at Buckley Park. Tickets go on sale June 1, and ticket options include a VIP ticket, a General Admission ticket and a Designated Driver ticket. Prices range from $20 to $80.
Attendees receive a 5 oz tasting glass upon entry, and then unlimited tastings from the participating breweries. Food is available for purchase on site, and live music is always provided. VIP’s receive a few extras – an invite to a private party with the participating breweries the night before the Brewfest, one hour early entry the day of the Brewfest, and access to the VIP Tent with shaded seating and a small meal.
The Brewfest is a fundraiser for United Way of Southwest Colorado, and in 2019 generated over $50,000 for this great, local charity!
