Festival news

WinterWonderGrass recently announced the addition of bluegrass legends Leftover Salmon to the Colorado lineup. For more than 25 years, this band has been delivering authentic, passionate live shows to fans across the country.

The band will perform on the main stage and infiltrate the beer halls, side stages and late nights, delivering spontaneous collaboration with other WinterWonderGrass artists. Leftover Salmon also exemplifies the synergy between bluegrass and craft beer, having released a collaboration brew this past summer with Breckenridge Brewery for its 25th anniversary celebration.

In addition to the festival’s two presenting brew partners, Great Divide Brewing and Crazy Mountain, WinterWonderGrass has announced 18 Colorado breweries that will be pouring their signature brews from 2:30 to 5:30 p.m. each day of the festival in the two heated beer tents. Tasting partners include Aspen Brewing Co., Ska Brewing, Oskar Blues Brewery, Odell Brewing Co., Left Hand Brewing, Telluride Brewing Co., Avery Brewing, Vail Brewing Co., Upslope Brewing Co., Mockery Brewing, Bonfire Brewing, Breckenridge Brewery, Roaring Fork Beer Co., Elevation Beer Co., Epic Brewing Co. and Crooked Stave. Both brew tents include side stages surrounded by hay bales and whiskey barrels, hosting raucous bluegrass jams.

All three-day festival tickets include a commemorative festival beer mug, three hours of beer tastings and live music from 3 to 10 p.m. on four stages. Children younger than 12 are free. All tickets are on sale now at http://www.winterwonder for a limited time.
