Breckenridge Brewery hosts live music event in Littleton

Early-bird tickets to the Breckenridge Brewery Hootenanny went on sale at 8 a.m. Friday, May 27. This all-day music-fueled celebration on July 9 marks the brewery’s 26th year in the craft brewing scene. The 12-acre brewery campus in Littleton, provides room for two stages, elbow room for dancing, more beer and barbecue tents and more space for hanging out with friends.

This year’s music line-up features Robert Randolph and the Family Band, Larry & Jenny Keel (accompanied by Drew Emmitt and Andy Thorn of Leftover Salmon), and Head for the Hills on the main stage. The brewery will announce a festival headliner in several weeks. The beer garden stage showcases Colorado musicians Zolopht, Grant Farm, We Dream Dawn, Sweet Lillies and Caribou Mountain Collective.

The first 200 people to purchase tickets online can do so at the special anniversary price of $26. These limited tickets also include access to the after-party at Cervante’s Masterpiece in Denver where Robert Randolph and Zolopht will perform again.

“Our Hootenanny really speaks to who we are,” said Todd Thibault, of Breckenridge Brewery, in a statement. “We’ve grown up a bit over the 26 years, but we’re still the same folks who enjoy good beer and good times with friends. That’s why we do this. We want to share what we love with the folks who helped us get here.”

As in years past, the Breckenridge Brewery Hootenanny benefits Conscious Alliance, a Colorado-based nonprofit that fights hunger across the nation through their extraordinary grassroots food collection and hunger awareness programs.
