Inaugural Reds, Whites & Brews Festival comes to Avon Saturday
A brand-new wine and beer sampling event takes place in Avon Saturday, along with free live music. The spirit of Colorado and summertime come together during Avon’s inaugural Reds, Whites & Brews Festival, which features an afternoon of unlimited wine and beer tastings from up to 20 breweries and 20 wineries in centrally located Nottingham Park. The festival runs from noon until 5 p.m.The live music line-up includes Colorado bands Nate King and The Disintegrators (rock and blues), Finnders and Youngberg (bluegrass) and headliner Hillbilly Hellcats, one of the nation’s top rockabilly bands.”We feel it is important to keep the tickets reasonably priced so everyone can attend,” said Holli Snyder, general manager of NRC365 in Avon.Tickets will be sold at the gate – $30 for general admission and $75 for VIP tickets. VIP guests will enjoy a private area with catered food, anad wine and beer tastings from a keepsake glass commemorating the inaugural event. Brewers include local favorites Bonfire Brewing and Crazy Mountain Brewing, as well as Boulder Brewing, Aspen Brewing and Alaska brewing. Veraison Beverage Distributors will be on hand representing vintners from the U.S. and around the globe, including California and Italy.”This is not the average Vail Valley beer or wine fest,” said Danita Chirichillo, special events supervisor with the town of Avon. “Avon is friendly and welcoming and with amazing weather that makes summer in the Colorado high country so special. Nottingham Park is convenient to bus service, biking paths and several hotels, so everyone can enjoy the day, and evening, responsibly.” Eco Transit will offer free bus rides home to all attendees from 3:30 to 6:30 p.m. from the Beaver Creek lots and Avon Station.Tickets can be purchased at redswhitesandbrews.net.
