Brewfests are becoming synonymous with summer in Colorado, with smaller communities not wanting to be left out.

As craft brewing continues to rise in popularity, Erie will host its first brewfest in downtown Erie Saturday afternoon. Their website states "we'll have beer tastings from at least 10 Colorado Breweries as well as food availible from several food trucks." For a $30 ticket, participants will get a 4-ounce tasting glass, with which they can sample beer from as many breweries as they want.

While the Erie Brew Fest is not a multiple day event like the nine day long Denver Brew Fest - which you can check out below, Erie has the trump card. It's happening today! You can purchase tickets here.

You can find a list of beer-related events nation wide here.
