The Vail Craft Beer Classic, one of the valley’s favorite beer-tasting festivals, returns on Friday, June 26, and Saturday, June 27.

Each year, the festival pairs some of the state’s best suds with outdoor activities. Events can include a hike up Vail Mountain to a lunch with beer pairings, for example. There’s also the Toast of Vail event, the biggest tasting of the weekend, scheduled for from 3-6 p.m. Saturday.

New last year, the Rocky Mountain Burger Festival kicked off a weekend of beer tastings by challenging local restaurants to craft the best burger. Winners were determined by popular vote. The event is back again, scheduled for Thursday, June 25.

The full schedule has not been released but will unfold as the event approaches.
