Breckenridge beer walk coming March 11
February 15, 2017
Joyride Brewing will be rolling into Breckenridge for a beer and music festival on March 11.
The Ride On! Music and Beer Festival will feature eight area breweries, the Breckenridge Distillery and a lineup of four bands, said Brandon Friese of Outlier Productions, the event organizer.
The actual festival is broken up into two distinct time frames — one from 4-6:30 p.m. for patrons 21 and older and another after 6:30 p.m. for concertgoers age 16-and-up.
Naturally, with the first time slot being for adults 21 and up, libations will flow and attendees can try the brews and spirits while listening to live music provided by the Denver-based band COAMBIENT.
After 6:30 p.m., the music kicks off in earnest, and the age requirement drops to 16, and so do the ticket prices.
The lineup of bands starts with Gipsy Moon, a five-person folk group from Nederland. They will be followed by the North Carolina quartet MIPSO, which combines a traditional string format with modern influences. Finally, Euforquestra will cap things off with its brand of modern funk, roots and vintage soul.
Tickets are $30 in advance or $40 at the door for the entire festival, including the 4-6:30 p.m. beer tasting.
For just the concertgoers who are not planning on drinking, tickets covering everything after 6:30 p.m. are $20 in advance or $25 the day of the festival.
All profits from the second annual Ride On! Beer and Music Festival will go to Conscious Alliance, a nonprofit organization that focuses on feeding the hungry through donations and organized food drives at music and sporting events.
