Strings Ciders & Sours
September 28-30, 2018
Main Street Station and Other Locations Throughout Breckenridge
It was only a few years ago that ciders were an outlier, not in the mainstream, only for those that can’t handle a ‘real’ beer; but not any longer. Cider is now one of the most beloved and versatile beverages that is storming the liquor industry with uncountable varieties. To honor the newly loved alcoholic beverage, Breckenridge hosts Strings, Ciders & Sours - a Rocky Mountain mix of quintessential bluegrass and unique flavors set to a backdrop of the beautiful Tenmile Mountain Range.
Taste your way through a vast array of cider, ale, and sour samplings on the afternoon of September 29th. All inclusive Grand Tasting tickets are only $40 in advance, so pick them up soon.
