Quick Details


The annual Rails & Ales Brewfest combines our favorite things: classic rail equipment, a rustic Rocky Mountain setting, live music, and handcrafted brews from the region’s best breweries. There’s something really special about hopping on a train with your friends and riding to the wide open space we call Fir Station — our little piece of heaven custom-built for the railroad.

Fir Station highlights how nature and music can come together and perfectly complement each other. Every year, the Rails & Ales Brewfest brings together brewers and their devoted fans, a hardy group that understands the simple truth of this event — you can only get here by rail, and it doesn’t get any better than this.

Hop on the train and join us for this year’s Rails & Ales Brewfest! Enjoy some of the best brews around and spend a great day in the mountains. It’s a Colorado experience like no other.
