We're taught in journalism school to never use the phrase "first annual," but here's hoping this new beer festival in Castle Rock becomes an annual event. The Rendezvous at the Rock, which is sponsored by Castle Rock's Rockyard Brewing and others, runs from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday and will feature beers from 30 breweries. All the usual suspects from the Pikes Peak region will be there, along with breweries from across the Front Range and music by Colorado Springs' Grass It Up. The festival will be at Rockyard's brewery, 880 Castleton Road in Castle Rock. Tickets are $35, $40 at the door, and can be bought at rendezvousattherock.net.
