Beer is as old as civilization itself. Saturday is a chance to get really civilized at the sixth annual Big Beers, Belgians and Barleywines festival.This year’s events are at Manor Vail Resort, a very civilized place.Events start Friday with a homebrew competition. A Friday brewmasters dinner is already sold out, but there are plenty of tickets left for the tasting, set for Saturday, Jan. 7 from 2 – 7 p.m.Small breweries from around the country are bringing their best “heavy” beers to the tasting. You’ll find refreshing, bubbly fermented malt beverages from: Anchor, Dillon Dam Brewery, New Belgium, and one called Delirium, which you have to love.In all more than 100 breweries will be at Manor Vail, helping the throngs get more civilized than they can stand. Tickets for the tasting are $22 in advance, $25 at the door. Best of all, a ticket to the tasting gets you a free pass on an ECO bus or a half-price voucher for High Mountain Taxi. Safety is a civilized thing, too.For more information, call 524-1092, or go to those trees!

Gypsum’s celebration is in the field just south of Columbine Market.Local fire departments and the Lions Club are the hosts for the evening.Be there and watch those trees go up in smoke!’Steamboat Spirit’A celebration of junior athletes and a dedication ceremony of a sculpture in memory of fallen ski racer Ashley Stamp will be held Saturday at 3 p.m. on Howlsen Hill in Steamboat Springs.
