Breckenridge Craft Spirits Festival: Still on the Hill, Oct. 20-22, 2017

Craft distillers gather each year in Breckenridge for the Craft Spirits Festival, which features a grand tasting, restaurant specials, a downtown pub crawl and historic saloon tours.

Born of Colorado’s – and the nation’s – rapidly-growing artisan spirits industry, the Breckenridge fest is the first of its kind in Colorado and last year added new bar glass art sessions and cooking demos. Family tip: Leave the kids with relatives and make this trip all about Mom and Dad.
