While Snowmass gears up for this summer's Chili and Brewfest, nearby Carbondale launches its First Annual Bread and Brew Fest to get those pallettes started. Mountain Groove Productions brings music, food and suds to the area this weekend, June 1-2. Homemade, handmade gourmet breads from local bakers, regional brewers and microbrews extraordinaire, and a full line-up of live music from Dan Sheridan, David Bromberg, reggae greats The Itals, and more.
June 8 and 9, it's another flavorful weekend of spicy food, beer and music. The 2012 Snowmass Chili and Brewfest comes to Fanny Hill, featuring a new 3-hour beer tasting, chili sampling of tastes from all over Colorado, and live music Friday evening and Saturday afternoon.
The weekend's music lineup includes Gogo Bordello, Sierra Leone Refugee All-Stars, The Congress and...the return of Galactic!
The early summer Chili and Brewfest has become one of our area's primary seasonal festivals, so get your tickets early and make it a full weekend on the hill.
This Saturday, while driving around the beautiful Roaring Fork Valley countryside, head to the stunning scenery of the Crystal River Valley and explore the Historic Redstone Castle tour. Built in 1900, the ornate Redstone Castle was John Cleveland Osgood's chef d'oeuvre, featuring original furnishings, Tiffany decor and historic paneling.
And listen closely to your tour guide...spirits of the olden times may be accompanying you on your tour, as well.
