23rd Annual Mountain Brewers Festival

Listen up! One of our favorite "local" beer festivals, the Mountain Brewers Festival in Idaho Falls, Idaho is just around the corner and there are some big changes that you need to know about.

First off. The ticket sales ($40) are advance purchase only and are limited to 5,500 attendees – no ticket sales at the gate. Here is the link to get your tickets. There will be tickets available at some of our local SLC/Ogden breweries. When those go on sale, I'll give you the when and where. They're usually at Uinta, Roosters and Bohemian.

Hotels: They are aware that this is a big weekend in Idaho Falls and their pricing is starting to reflect this. Start shopping around and book your rooms soon!

The week prior to the beer fest is Idaho Craft Beer Week (May 28 - June 3). If you can go up early you'll find a shload of special events, special tappings and tap take-overs. If you want to get you beer geek on, there's plenty happening.

There will be free buses to get you to and from the festival on saturday. Locations in Idaho
Falls/Ammon:
Bowlero
Buffalo Wild Wings
Hilton Garden Inn
LaQuinta Inn
Firehouse Grill
The Frosty Gator
Sam’s Club
Shilo Inn
Snow Eagle Brewing
The Zone

This is still a 21+ event, so don't bring the papoose(s). I hope to see you there!

We're now in the Sweet 16 Round of the Low Point Utah Beer Challenge. This is when things start to tighten up in the voting. There are quite a few tough choice this round and there is a rainbow of styles represented. Voting for this round will last 48 hours as well and will end Saturday morning. As you can see, the ballots are in the column to the right.

Cheers!
