Vail, CO – Two months after celebrating its one year anniversary on April 1, 2016, Vail Brewing Co. (VBC) is ready to open its second tasting room in the Solaris complex of Vail Village. The new tasting room will open the beginning of June and will be the first stand alone brewery-owned location in Vail since the Kaltenberg Castle Royal Bavarian Brewhouse and Hubcap Brewery in the early 2000’s. The new tasting room will share the same mountain aesthetic of the original taproom connected to the brewery but brings VBC’s fine, hand-crafted ales closer to the guests that visit Vail throughout the year.
In its first year VBC earned a reputation for great beer delivered with expert customer service in a terrific environment for both chatting with friends or catching a live show. Owner Scott Harrison is hoping to transfer that same reputation over to the new location, “Obviously any time you scale up there are risks but we saw this opportunity and knew we had to seize it. We have a great team here at the brewery and we are excited to bring our brand of fun into Vail Village.”
The new tasting room will feature up to 32 taps and apres live music will be a staple. The new tasting room is located above Bol in the Solaris complex of Vail Village. Hours are 11:00AM – 12:00AM Sun-Wed and 11:00AM – UTC Thur-Sat. Hours may change during peak seasons.
