Keystone's Bluegrass and Beer Festival - August 3 & 4, 2019: 1PM-5PM Daily, River Run Village, Keystone, Saturday, 03. August 2019

What’s on tap in August? Beer, beer and more Colorado beer. The 23rd Annual Keystone Bluegrass and Beer Festival will serve up more than 100 brews from 40-plus Colorado breweries August 3rd & 4th. 
Keystone brings the wonders of Appalachia to the Rockies. Down-home cooking, frothy flavors and mountain music are just a piece of the pie. In a whirlwind of hillbilly luxuries, folks gather while 40+ craft breweries from Colorado and beyond showcase their unique blends of hops and barleys.  Live music kicks up on three stages and the “best of the best” grace us with their presence throughout the two days.
