Slated for March 18th and 19th, we’ve set this growler of a fest to be a 2-day event for Friday and Saturday bringing in some of the region’s best craft breweries at the base of the mountain. Get ready for tents over your head, wood chips at your feet, and of a course a beer in your hand!

OUR VISION OF CRAFT EPICNESS
Beer Goggles intermingles the finest craft breweries, thirstiest beer enthusiasts, and hungriest powder fans at one of North America’s finest resorts for a weekend of fun and foam. Last year was a rousing success with the expansion of the festival lasting 2 days. “Beer Goggles is not simply a beer festival, but a celebration of the craft beer industry,” says Don Thompson, GM of RED Mountain Resort. “And RED is kind of the ‘craft beer’ of ski resorts: better taste, less filler! We really feel a common bond with many of these breweries and respect their daring independence and devotion to making people happy.”
So, if you want to join the Craftbrew Mob and (responsibly!) combine your love of pints and powder, beers and boards, this is the excuse you’ve been waiting for. Tickets are available online or by visiting guest services in the base lodge (open 8:30AM – 4PM daily). Must be 19+ to attend the Beer Goggles Craft Beer Festival and must provide proper identification for entry.
