It’s the merriest and brightest season of the year, especially at Anheuser-Busch Fort Collins’ Brewery Lights, where thousands of twinkling lights illuminate the brewery. There’s something for everyone at this magical holiday experience, including new family-friendly activities and theme nights, delicious food, festive entertainment and of course, beer for adults over 21.
Now in its fourth year, Brewery Lights is bringing back beloved traditions, including a light show synchronized to holiday music, s’mores roasting at the outdoor fire pits, a holiday tree maze, Brewery Express train rides for the kids and three complimentary beer samples for guests 21 and older. If you’re on the hunt for the perfect holiday gift or Brewery Lights mementos, visit the gift shop to find the perfect present for friends and family, including warm winter gear like beanies, sweatshirts and jackets. Guests of all ages are invited to warm up with hot cocoa and festive food for purchase in The Biergarten.
If this isn’t your first time visiting Brewery Lights there are new things to enjoy this year, too. The brewery will be hosting special theme nights each Thursday, where the best-dressed, theme-appropriate guests will win prizes. We can’t wait for the Ugly Sweater Theme Night on Dec. 20! For guests young and old, there will also be family nights each Sunday with live music, face painters and a new kids craft area.
Also, guess who’s coming to town, pulling a big red wagon? The world-famous Budweiser Clydesdales! Everyone’s favorite gentle giants are trotting back to the brewery to join in the holiday festivities. Brewery Lights-goers can visit the Clydesdales in their stables from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. on Thursdays through Sundays and also from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Mondays and Wednesdays. Guests looking for a unique holiday photo can also snap a picture with a Clydesdale on Clydesdale Camera Day on Sunday, Dec. 16 from 1 to 3 p.m.
