The Springs Beer Fest, presented by CraftWorks Foundation, announced that Bristol Brewing Company will be launching a signature beer for its 10th anniversary event taking place on August 6, 2016 at America The Beautiful Park in Colorado Springs, Colorado.

It will compliment this year’s impressive brewery lineup perfectly.

With 64 kegs brewed, Springs Beer Fest Kolsch is one of a select few beers in the area claiming the All Colorado Certified title with the hops, malt, water, and yeast all come directly from the state of Colorado.
