Frequently Asked Questions


Date? Time? Place?

Sunday, July 16th from 12-5pm at the Tivoli Quad! Everybody with ANY ticket type gets to enjoy BrüFrouFEST 2017 for all 5 hours including a diverse & diggable lineup of live music from our main stage.


What's up with the GA Virtual Token System?

New for 2017! BrüFrou has always supported the hundreds of local Colorado craft breweries & eateries by compensating them for all the wonderful pairings they create at the event. And yes, we know that makes BrüFrou, with its "All-You-Can-Enjoy" VIP ticket, not the cheapest event out there.

The new Virtual Token System from Spigot Labs allows us to offer a "value" GA -ticket for less than 1/3 of the VIP ticket price to attendees by giving the choice of picking & choosing which pairings attendees would like to enjoy.

If you think you'll enjoy less then 40 craft beer samples paired with 40 one-bite dishes, then consider the GA ticket (see pricing guide below). If you would like to enjoy the cornucopia of flavors that the largest craft brewer & chef pairing event in the country has to offer including the extra special pairings exclusively available in the tented VIP area, then consider the "All-You-Can-Enjoy" VIP ticket using our Wristband system.

Either way, you can't go wrong with ALL ticket types including 5 hours of live music and lots of delicious fun for everyone!

Will there be any Gluten-Free or Gluten-Removed menu items?

YES! We have always had a decent selection of GF options, and we will undoubtedly have again. (check out the 2016 Menu to give you an idea)


Will there be any Vegetarian or Pescatarian menu items?

YES! We have always had a decent selection of dietary options, and with 50% more chefs (accessible with VIP ticket) on hand this year, we will undoubtedly have again. Besides, isn't beer vegetarian?!?! (check out the 2016 Menu to give you an idea)


What if it rains?

HEY NOW, let's keep positive— this IS Colorado after all. You know, 300+ days of sunshine a year. But even if the weather is inclement, it will still be great with a small portion of the event area tented. The show must go on!


How's the parking around the Tivoli Quad?

EXCELLENT! The TIVOLI GARAGE on the corner of Auraria Parkway & 9th Street has plenty of convenient parking spots right next to BrüFrou.


Any public transporation to the Tivoli Quad?

YOU BET! By BUS, go to the Auraria Parkway & 9th Street Bus Station (right next to BrüFrou). By TRAIN, Go to the Pepsi Center / Elitch Gardens Train Station (about a 5 minute walk to BrüFrou).


Do you have to be 21 years of age?

ABSOLUTELY! We will be checking IDs upon entrance to the building. Best to keep BrüFrou for the adults as we will NOT admit any kids of ANY age below 21 into BrüFrou :-)
