Craft Your Own Big Beers 2022
We are lifting our glasses in a toast to the amazing breweries who have made Big Beers what it is today over the past 20 festivals in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado.
Wherever you are in the world, we give thanks to you for participating and supporting the art and craft of brewing. These special big (7% abv+), Belgian in style (or actually Belgian), and experimental beers are worthy of note, and our mission to open the eyes of the casual beer drinker continues as we move forward with you to 2023.
We hope to see you in person in Breckenridge to celebrate our 21st Anniversary (January 5 – 7, 2023). Please save the dates on your calendar!
There are so many ways to celebrate and support our breweries. Browse the list below for something near you
How It All Began
In 2010 Lisa Marcus, a restaurant and bar manager visionary, met Eric Sterling, a software engineer, on an OKCupid date. Just three months later on March 23rd, 2011 in Portland Oregon, DigitalPour was born.
It was on this first date that Lisa discussed the challenges of her job of managing beverage inventory. If you ask Eric, he will say that he was trying to impress her by showing up with sample code on the second date. Lisa was indeed impressed with Eric’s code skills and the ability to translate her vision with numbers and slanty lines in the sky.
Eric spent many an hour moonlighting on DigitalPour at his favorite craft beer bar — Baileys Taproom. With the help of the Baileys team, Lisa’s industry knowledge and many months of writing code, the very first digital beer menu hit the market in August of 2011 at Baileys Taproom.
In October of 2011 we were showcased on the cover of Beer Advocate. Since then we have enjoyed unique partnerships, industry accolades, and hundreds of satisfied customers all over the world.
