Summer Brew

Come join us for a fun day of summertime beer drinking!  Summer Brew, presented by Liquor World, is Purgatory Resort’s mid-summer beer festival, featuring all your favorite cold, refreshing, summertime beers!

These are the beers you turn to on a hot, summer day.  Whether you’re floating the river, at the ball game, mowing the lawn, or chilling out on your porch, there’s nothing better than a cold beer and some good friends!

Bring your friends and a blanket or a lawn chair, and enjoy a great summer day on the mountain sipping away the afternoon!

Summer Brew is a festival celebrating summertime beers.  You can expect to sample amazing ales, lagers, kolsch, pilsners, wit beers, and all your other favorite light, refreshing beer styles.  Our local breweries and distributors will be bringing their best summertime beers for you to enjoy!

We have 20 great beers and breweries confirmed for the event.  Check them all out below.

One of the coolest things about this event is that it features local craft breweries as well as your favorite national brands.  Most of us love our craft breweries and ALSO love a cold Pacifico or PBR on a hot summer day.  This is one of the only beer festivals around where you can have it all!




While you are sampling all the great beers, chill out on the lawn and enjoy live music all afternoon.  State 38, one of Colorado’s best jam bands, will be taking the stage.


Kids are welcome at this event.  Admission is free for anyone under 21.

We encourage you to bring the whole family and enjoy all the fun activities at Purgatory Resort, while sampling these great summertime beers.
