Karin B. is ResortQuest's event planner and true Breck local — she loves to ensure all our guests enjoy themselves, so check out her insider knowledge!
One of the best things to do during Spring Fever in Breckenridge will be the Breckenridge Beer Festival April 9th at Main Street Station.
You really need to spend the entire weekend in Breck, check out the nightlife the night before and, of course, spend the night of the Beer Fest — because with 24 brewers sampling their specialty brews, you'll want a comfy bed to return to!
This year the Breck Beer Fest will feature three bands. Openers the Holden Young Trio and Something Underground set the stage for headliner Elliott Brood and are all sure to keep your feet moving with their grooving music!!!
By buying a $65 VIP (presale) beer mug, you can begin your unlimited beer sampling one hour earlier (noon – 5pm) and will gain you access into a VIP lounge for a nice lunch catered by Harvest Catering. An unlimited-tasting regular mug price will run you $25 (presale) and will get you sampling from 1-5pm. Entry into the event for music is FREE.

So now, where to stay? They say that location is everything, so let's start with the closest lodging to the event. The Breck Beer Fest is located at Main Street Station in the plaza at the center of the complex. I would say that to be right in the mix, staying at Main Street Station in one of the rooms overlooking the plaza would be ideal. You would be able to watch the live music right from your balcony and venture down to sample the brews as you wish. Book This Property Now!
If you are looking for a little more peace and quiet, but still want fabulous luxury, the next building over is Water House on Main Street. It is new, incredibly decorated, and the end units have spectacular views of Peak 9 and Maggie Pond. The night before the event, take advantage of the amenities Water House has to offer: fitness center, swimming pool, hot tubs and eucalyptus steam rooms. After the event is over, you can walk to the many restaurants on Main Street, as Water House is located on Main on the south side of town. Book This Property Now!
For a more economical lodging choice for Beer Fest weekend, try River Mountain Lodge. It is clean, comfortable and located one block from all of the action of Main Street, Breckenridge, in the center of town. It, too, has a fitness room, swimming pool, hot tubs (some units have their own private hot tub) and bar lounge. A short 5-minute walk will bring you to the Festival. Book This Property Now!
Of course, I truly recommend staying anywhere within walking distance, because between the 24 brews being served and the 10,000 feet above sea level, you surely will not want to drive. There is a wide range of lodging options located all within a 5-minute walk to the Beer Fest.
