Breweries from across Colorado supporting Oktoberfest

Community

GRAND JUNCTION, Colo — Bringing breweries and a little taste of Germany to the Western Slope for a good cause.

Oktoberfest, a German tradition that started in the 1800s has found a home in the Grand Valley.

Adam Kinsey, COPMOBA Board Member, says, “especially for Oktoberfest and the German tradition, it’s really a social thing, bringing people together, the beer holes in Munich, the rest, craft beer, in particular, is great. There’s so many great craft breweries in the valley and throughout Colorado.”

The proceeds collected at this year’s event go to help fund trails in western Colorado.

One vendor is proud to give back.

Nate Levi, with Epic Brewing Company, says, “you know I’m a mountain biker, what I can do is give lots of free beer for great trail organizations.”

Thirteen craft breweries, some local and some from around the state made a stop in Grand Junction.

Kinsey also says, “the best part here is all the breweries have donated and it all goes to our local mountain bike trails, so we’re really excited about that.”
