From now until Saturday night, Fort Collins is celebrating its annual Beer Week with brews and events popping up around town, all of which lead up to this weekend’s Colorado Brewers’ Festival, the largest outdoor beer festival in the state of Colorado.


Odell, New Belgium and a variety of other craft breweries from Fort Collins all have something special to give to a week dedicated to their brews.

Many restaurants have special brews being tapped just for this week. Others are pairing food items with a variety of beers. Meanwhile, breweries in Old Town have events and games ready to celebrate the week with their own special and sometimes discounted brews.
