Vail Craft Beer Classic 2018 dominates Father's Day Weekend in Vail

By Caitlin Row | Tuesday, June 12, 2018

Father's Day is Sunday, June 17! For all those beer-loving dads out there, this is the perfect time to escape to Vail for a long weekend. 

The Vail Craft Beer Classic kicks off on Thursday, June 14, with the Brewers Dinner. Then it runs all weekend with special events like Sip at the Summit on Friday, June 15, the Toast of Vail Grand Tasting on Saturday, June 16, and Father's Day Beerunch on Sunday, June 17.

Weather this weekend may be a little rainy, but that's OK. Thunderstorms are predicted for Saturday evening, and Sunday may likely be a little wet. Bring a rain jacket and dress in layers. Click here for the 10-day forecast.

With that in mind, here are my top picks for Vail Valley This Week.
