    Tickets on Sale Sept. 4 for the 2014 Big Beers, Belgians & Barleywines Festival

    VAIL, Colo. – Aug. 12, 2013 – Every January, craft brewers from around the nation convene in Vail to share their liquid art at the Big Beers, Belgians & Barleywines Festival. Regarded as one of the most prestigious craft brew events in the nation, Big Beers is known for the impressive roster of craft beer industry celebrities it attracts each year. Last year, the event attracted nearly 1,200 folks and this year organizers expect a larger crowd since the ever-popular Commercial Tasting and Fireside Bar programs have been re-located to larger venues within the Vail Cascade Resort, nearly doubling ticket availability for the Commercial Tasting. Slated for Jan 9-11, 2014, Big Beers, Belgians & Barleywines tickets will go on sale online on Wed., Sept. 4 at 10am MST. Ticket prices will vary based on selected programs. The Vail Cascade Resort will also offer discounted room rates for that weekend starting at $219 for a standard lodge room with promotion code BigBeers2014.    

    For a complete listing of weekend events, featured brewmasters, seminars and presenters visit the event's website or sign up for the Facebook group page.  Updates, news and brewmaster confirmations will be communicated via these channels on a regular basis.
