How big is this craft beer thing in Colorado? Find out Saturday at the seventh annual All Colorado Beer Festival, where 64 brewers - a third of them making a first-time appearance at the event - will pour unlimited tastes in the hall of Freedom Financial Services Expo Center, 3650 N. Nevada Ave. in Colorado Springs. Sessions are 1-4:30 p.m. and 6:30-10 p.m. The first tends to be for the beer geeks, while the night session turns into more of a party. Tickets are $35, $30 for active-duty military. A limited number of early entry tickets are on sale for $40, granting access to the hall an hour early. Proceeds benefit TheatreWorks, The Gazette's Empty Stocking Fund and The Home Front Cares. Details: allcoloradobeerfestival.com.
