“We’re so thrilled to bring Top Shelf Harvest to life by celebrating the top Colorado craft distilleries, as well as the culinary techniques of some of the most popular restaurants in Vail. We want our guests to enjoy the inventive cocktails deliberately prepared to be paired with delicious food surrounded by autumn colors, live music and entertainment in the heart of Vail,” said Laurie Asmussen, event producer of Eagle Valley Events.

Top Shelf Harvest will also feature a mixologist contest showcasing old school and modern cocktails, as well as a chance for people to vote for their favorite cocktails and cuisine.

Additionally, there will be demonstrations by top mixologists and chefs, allowing people the chance to see the masters at work while enjoying live music.
