Keystone Bluegrass and Beer Festival
August 4 - 5, 2018Keystone, CO
Keystone brings the wonders of Appalachia to the Rockies. Down-home cooking, frothy flavors and mountain music are just pieces of the pie. In a whirlwind of hillbilly luxuries, folks gather while 40+ craft breweries from Colorado and beyond showcase their unique blends of hops and barleys while 14 national and regional bluegrass acts entertain on three different village stages.
Mountain music rings throughout the River Run Village under blue August skies. Sound enticing? This year’s 2018 rocking Bluegrass Line-Up includes Monocle Band, Old Salt Union, Ragged Union, Masontown, Cicada Rhythm, The Lonesome Days, Head for the Hills, White Water Ramble, Brett Cobb, The Lil Smokies, and Mandolin Orange taking the bluegrass stage both Saturday and Sunday! Nothing compliments bluegrass like the tapping of hundreds of kegs filled to the brim with some of the best craft beer around. You’ll find beer enthusiast favorites like New Belgium in attendance as well as some up and comers like the local Baker’s Brewery hailing from Silverthorne, Colorado. Brewery tents adorn every nook and cranny of the village perpetuating that never ending love affair between Colorado and its beer. So raise a pint or two and toast the 22nd year of Colorado’s longest running beer and bluegrass festival.
