Special to the Daily

Bonfire Brewing prepares for the Vail Valley’s sun-filled spring days with the completed construction of its newly-expanded tasting room patio. The expansion was made possible in part by an amendment to the town of Eagle’s land use regulations, which passed in September of 2018. The patio opened for patron use beginning the first week of February.

Voted Best Patio in 2017 by Vail Daily readers, the latest expansion to Bonfire’s patio features a renovation of the previous space along with a connecting addition on the west side of the tasting room. The patio expansion increases Bonfire’s customer area by over 700 square feet. The western expansion features a garage door opening to the inside with additional bar seating lining both ends.

‘Excited and Proud’

“We’re excited and proud of this expansion coming to fruition. It has been in the works for quite some time and should really enhance the Bonfire experience, especially in the warmer months,” explains Bonfire co-founder Andy Jessen. “Full utilization of our space, enhancing the entry to downtown Eagle, and hopefully bringing more people to town and our tasting room is a great accomplishment by our team, our construction partners and town staff.”

Bonfire Brewing is formulating plans for a party this coming spring to celebrate the grand opening of the new patio.
