Hops and Handrails

LONGMONT, CO • February 2, 2017 – Left Hand Brewing Foundation is bringing the mountain to the people! In its fifth year, Hops+Handrails features the best of Colorado, pairing a 65+ craft brewery festival alongside a 40’ high ski & snowboard ramp & rail jam competition! Returning on March 11th to Longmont, Colorado, the unique hybrid event gives attendees a taste of what Colorado does best – craft beer, winter sports, and live music. Closing on a high note, the rock & blues band Chris Robinson Brotherhood will headline Hops + Handrails 2017.

Doors open at 11am at Roosevelt Park, with riders starting their runs and the beer fest fully underway by noon! Guests can sample a wide variety of the nation’s finest craft beer from over sixty breweries. A $40 sampling pass provides attendees unlimited tasting during the session. The rail jam will feature a four story ramp loaded with trick rails including a keg wall! The competition will be fully underway by 12:45pm, with Colorado’s best riders competing in the Open and Women’s & Junior’s categories. The Hops + Handrails stage will be lively and rocking featuring Grant Farm at 1pm, and headliner Chris Robinson Brotherhood (formerly of the Black Crows) performing at 4:30pm.

Hops + Handrails welcomes all ages. Want to get your little one on a board?
