NEW for 2014! The Beer Garden

This year we bring you our all new Beer Garden! Beer gardens are taking over the US as “the new coffee shop” and we wanted in. We’re building our very own beer garden on the tree-shaded Crescent Terrace for the first time this year. Travel around the terrace tasting beer after beer, including our local and seasonal favorites. Chefs will also be preparing house-made “bar snacks” to pair with our picks. Prost!

Tickets for the Beer Garden may only be purchased in combination with other ticket options.

Sake

TY KU Black Sake
TY KU Sake Black’s refined flavor profile balances peach on the nose with a subtle hint of spice underneath. The depth and body pairs well with lighter Western fare (grilled white meats and cooked fish), yet is dry and delicate enough to complement Asian cuisine. Recipient of the prestigious 5 Star Diamond Award, Gold Medal at the San Francisco Wine Competition and Platinum Medal (Best in Show) at the World Beverage Competition.

TY KU Silver Sake
TY KU Sake Silver has a fresh, slightly sweet taste with subtle pear notes; its rich flavor is soft & silky on the palate. Although it complements sushi & Asian cuisine, its well-rounded body pairs well with a variety of lighter Western cuisine. Recipient of the Platinum Medal (SIP), Gold Medal (NY Wine & Spirits), 90pt rating (Tasting Panel) & the HOT, NEW, NOW Award (WSWA).

Beer

Breckenridge Brewery
Back in the 1980s, founder Richard Squire was your typical ski bum – with one significant difference. He had a knack for making extraordinary home brews. For years, only his closest friends were able to enjoy his creations, but it didn’t take long for Richard to realize that his talents needed to be shared with the world. So, in February of 1990, Richard opened the doors of Breckenridge Brewery, Colorado’s third craft brewery, in charming and historic Breckenridge. He wanted to serve fresh, quality beer and homemade food in a relaxed atmosphere that everyone could enjoy. It didn’t take long for locals and visitors alike to appreciate these simple values, and within a few short years Breckenridge Brewery was the highlight of Main Street.

Brooklyn
1987, former AP Middle East Correspondent Steve Hindy and banker Tom Potter quit their day jobs and started The Brooklyn Brewery in Upstate New York. In 1989, they purchased their first truck. With a team of stalwart salesmen, they began peddling Brooklyn Lager in the streets of New York City. In 1996, Mayor Rudy Giuliani cut the ribbon to open their new brewery in Brooklyn’s Williamsburg neighborhood. Today, the Brooklyn Brewery is among America’s top 40 breweries, and Brooklyn Lager is among the top draft beers in New York City.

Highland Brewing Company
From their flagship Gaelic Ale to one-off Barrel Aged Smoked Cherry Wood Chocolate Cherry Stout, Highland believes in every beer they make. It has to be a beer they want to drink, made with the finest ingredients and crafted with care for their product, employees, customers, and our environment.

New Belgium
We’ll set the scene. 1989. Belgium. Boy on bike. (Ok, make that a young man of 32.) As our aspiring young homebrewer rides his mountain bike with “fat tires” through European villages famous for beer, New Belgium Brewing Company was but a glimmer in his eye. Or basement. For Jeff Lebesch would return to Fort Collins with an imagination full of recipes and a handful of ingredients ready to embark on a whole new journey. And then there was beer. Jeff’s first two basement-brewed creations? A brown dubbel with earthy undertones named Abbey and a remarkably well-balanced amber he named Fat Tire. To say the rest was history would be to overlook his wife’s involvement. Kim Jordan was New Belgium’s first bottler, sales rep, distributor, marketer and financial planner.

Oskar Blues
In the beginning…Great canned beer? The term has been an oxymoron for craft beer lovers used to getting their full-flavored beers from bottles only. When Dale Katechis decided to turn his restaurant (in tiny Lions, Colorado. Pop. 1,400) into a brewpub in 1999, he had no idea that what started out as a small side project would turn into a huge success. Customers were diggin’ the beer, and wanted more. In 2002, Dale and his crew decided it was time to start packaging their beer. And they felt there was no better package for his craft beers than a CAN. In November of 2002, he launched the “Canned Beer Apocalypse” by putting his 3-dimensional Dale’s Pale Ale in a can. 10 years later, they are still rockin’ craft beer in CANS!

Samuel Adams
With over 30 styles of beer, Samuel Adams has been brewing quality beer since 1984 and is proud to be an American Craft Brewer.

Cigar City
Cigar City Brewing was founded with two goals in mind. The first to make the world’s best beer and the second to share with people near and far the fascinating culture and heritage of the Cigar City of Tampa. From its past as the world’s largest cigar producer to its Latin roots and the many other diverse peoples that call it home, Tampa draws on many sources to develop its unique culture.

Swamp Head Brewery
Swamp Head Brewery is a craft brewery based in Gainesville, Florida. Offerings include Wild Night Honey Cream Ale, Cottonmouth Belgian Witbier, Stump Knocker Pale Ale, Midnight Oil Oatmeal Coffee Stout, and Big Nose IPA along with many different seasonal and limited release beers. Swamp Head focuses on using Florida ingredients in their beers whenever possible.
