Strawberry Days in Glenwood Springs began as a picnic back in 1898, and today is the oldest, continuously held civic celebration west of the Mississippi River. As the mining community was on its way out, and the city was transitioning to a steadier family oriented environment, this celebration brought those same families and acquaintances together. Over the years the celebration has grown significantly and people from all over Colorado, and even other states, come to celebrate this annual tradition – the 3rd weekend in June every year.
Once a year, for only a week or more, Glenwood Canyon Brewing Company brings you Strawberry Daze Ale. This beer is packed with tons of strawberries late in fermentation, providing a wonderful flavor and aroma unlike anything you’ve tasted. This beer will go quickly, so be sure to stop by around Strawberry Days to fill your growler and have a pint.
