Winter may be (sort of) on the way out, but snow is hanging on in our Colorado mountain destination – and that's good news for everyone in town for Breck Pride events happening this week through Sunday. The Breckenridge Spring Beer Festival is part of the fun on Saturday, so read on for details. (If you are here to ski, check out our parking guide here.)
What I love about Summit County is its wealth of small craft breweries; if you are in town for the week (or simply a local looking for something new to do), make sure you check out our high-country beer. Dillon Dam Brewery in Dillon offers a rotating tap as does Pug Ryan's Brewing Company, also located in Dillon. The Bakers' Brewery in Silverthorne is another beer-centric stop found off the beaten path; don't miss it!
Here are my top picks for Summit This Week.
