6th Annual Hops + Handrails Beer Fest & Rail Jam

LONGMONT, CO • February 21, 2018 – Back for its sixth year, Hops + Handrails Beer Fest & Rail Jam, returns March 24th & 25th to Longmont, Colorado. Left Hand Brewing Foundation takes this winter wonderland up a notch with two days of beer fest samplings of 55+ craft breweries, two days of live music, and two days of spring snow.

Day 1 will feature a 40’ high snowboard ramp & rail jam competition with the support of Winter Park Resort. Only at Hops + Handrails can guests enjoy unlimited samplings of over 55 craft breweries while soaking up the Colorado sun in front of a four-story ramp in the middle of town. Skiers and boarders will throw down big air and their gnarliest tricks on the ramp, trick rails and keg wall in men’s and women’s categories.

After the Finals & Award Ceremony, Longmont will bring the funk to center stage for an electrifying performance. Headlining Saturday, Karl Denson, member of the touring party for the legendary band The Rolling Stones, will unleash soulful funk with his band Karl Denson’s Tiny Universe, regarded as one of the best live bands on the planet.

Day 2 will be a family-focused winter wonderland featuring a sledding & tubing hill. For the first time, entry for kids 12 and under is free. Want to get your little one on a board? Check out the Riglet Park, presented by Burton Snowboards & Satellite Board Shop, with junior boards and instructors on site.
