Lone Tree launching inaugural Backyard Brew Bash

A new beer festival is coming to the City of Lone that aims to cater to beer lovers and bourbon enthusiasts alike.

The inaugural Lone Tree Backyard Brew Bash will begin at 1 p.m. on May 29 in the Lone Tree Arts Center parking lot. The event will also kick off Lone Tree’s outdoor event summer season.

Several breweries from throughout the south metro area will showcase their menu and conduct tastings. Colorado distillery The Family Jones will run bourbon seminars, with some help from Little Man Ice Cream, which is providing ice cream for bourbon pairings. Bluegrass bands including The Reckless Folk, Elle Michelle’s Grateful Holler and The Wooks will play live music.

The event is ticketed. People interested in attending can purchase tickets at lonetreeartcenter.org.

Event manager Allissa Dailey said the city hopes to support south metro and Colorado-based businesses through the festival while also offering people a fun outlet.

“We really wanted to find a way to bring the community together in a safe way,” she said.

The event will be outdoors with plenty of room for people to socially distance, Dailey said. The festival is also ticketed to prevent large crowds during the COVID-19 pandemic. Sales will end roughly one hour before start time, she said.

Nick Touch, partner and brand ambassador at The Family Jones, said seminars will educate people about what makes Colorado whiskey unique from other parts of the country, with hopes of encouraging people to support local Colorado spirits.

“Maybe they’ll think about not grabbing a bottle of Jack Daniel’s the next time they go to the grocery store and look at the Colorado section,” he said.

Dennis Slack is director of sales and marketing for the Lone Tree Brewing Company, which helped the city form plans for a beer event.

He hopes the event can become larger in future years and for now gets people familiar with amenities and businesses Lone Tree offers. People can attend this year’s festival to enjoy their friends and community again, he said.

“There’s plenty of elbow room at the event so I think it’s a nice way to ease into normality, if you will,” he said.
