5th Annual Fort Collins Beer Week Brewers Olympics || Go West T-Shirt Company

Max here. I'm sort of the other half of Sonja K Photography, and I am going to write the blog today. Sorry! Sonja will be back soon, I promise. 

Fortified Collaborations puts on a bunch of great events here in Fort Collins and one that is near and dear to my heart is the Fort Collins Beer Week Brewers Olympics at Go West T-Shirt Company.  The event consists of a bunch of local breweries competing in beer-centric events for bragging rights and sweet trophies for their tap rooms. The event has evolved a bunch over the years and this installment was better than ever. The party was fantastic with lots of local food, local beer, and local celebrities. The Mayor of Fort Collins even showed up to be a guest judge! Our friend Chris from Troubadour Maltings was there spinning records, and the one and only Zach Yendra of Yendra Built was the legit Master of Ceremonies.  This year The Fort Collins Brewery broke through and won the Gold after taking Silver and Bronze the past two years respectively.

The Brewers Olympics is a great time and an awesome event that is not to be missed if you are in Fort Collins. Best of all- The money collected goes to help out a local family with The House That Beer Built II.  We are really honored to be part of such an awesome event.  Thank you so much to Kristina, Malia, all the sponsors, and all of the volunteers for putting on such a great time.  We can't wait to do it again next year!

If you have never been to one of the farm dinners that they put on you have to check it out. 

Here is a sweet video Sonja made for the event.
