The 2015 Fort Love Brewers Jamboree was created by the Loose Affiliation of Fort Collins Craft Brewers (LAFCCB) a group consisting of the craft brewers in Fort Collins and Loveland. This event is envisioned as a journey through craft beer at a slower pace. Our goal is to put craft into the festival experience with a focus on the great culture of Fort Collins and Loveland breweries. This premiere event is for brewers, beer lovers and family and will have an emphasis on beer tasting, education, and brewers telling the stories of their journey into the craft beer industry.
What’s beer without good food? Admission to the Fort Love Brewers Jamboree will include small plates of food to pair with beer.
Why not support a cause? The Cache La Poudre River and Big Thompson are vital natural resources to the communities in Northern Colorado. Also, water is a main ingredient in beer, which is why we are supporting water advocacy and the proceeds will support Save the Poudre.
The World Beer Cup is put on every other year by The Brewers Association, which is headquartered in Boulder, CO. The World Beer Cup is a popular event among brewers and brewing companies, as it brings together the best and brightest in the brewing industry. The 2014 World Beer Cup and Craft Brewers Conference took place in Denver, CO, and included a whopping 4,754 beers, 1,403 breweries from 58 countries and 94 styles of beer! Colorado brewers fared well at the World Beer Cup, bringing home 24 medals (10 Gold, 5 Silver, 9 Bronze).
According to The Brewers Association, “The mission of the World Beer Cup is to create greater consumer awareness around the world about the quality and diversity displayed by the various beers of the world. The World Beer Cup is dedicated to recognizing both the traditions and innovations shared by the entire brewing industry as well as those customs unique to specific countries and regions. The World Beer Cup also promotes the responsible consumption of beer as an alcohol-containing beverage and urges beer producers and distributors to encourage beer enthusiasts to savor the flavor of beer responsibly.”
