Create Your Own Big Beers 2022

We are lifting our glasses in a toast to the amazing breweries who have made Big Beers what it is today over the past 20 festivals in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado.

Wherever you are in the world, we give thanks to you for participating and supporting the art and craft of brewing. These special big (7% abv+), Belgian in style (or actually Belgian), and experimental beers are worthy of note, and our mission to open the eyes of the casual beer drinker continues as we move forward with you to 2023.

We hope to see you in person in Breckenridge to celebrate our 21st Anniversary (January 5 – 7, 2023). Please save the dates on your calendar!

There are so many ways to celebrate and support our breweries. Browse the list below for something near you
