About the Event

Colorado Startup Brews is a celebration of the things that make Colorado the state it is today: entrepreneurshipcraft beer and giving.

Colorado Startup Brews, now in its fifth year, is the annual members’ conference (21 & up) of the Colorado Startup Brews Association (CSBA). It is an opportunity to connect with like-minded Colorado-area startups to secure bragging rights for making some of the finest homebrew in town, and to help an amazing cause with 100% of proceeds benefiting the Dear Jack Foundation. It is a networking event, a craft beer competition, and completely fun. We welcome any Colorado-based company with a startup mentality and a passion for brewing to join us.

How it works

Participating startups will be given a space and a table to serve their team brew and set up any promotional materials they like. Additionally, startups will be provided with a bucket (for kegs or bottles) and ice to keep their beer cold. In return, each startup must brew and provide at least 5 gallons of beer for the event. Startups, you are also responsible for staffing and serving your beer at the event. If you would like to be considered for the beer or label competitions, you must submit two bottles of your beer to Ombud by September 3rd.

The event is an open beer hall (think GABF for startups), so participants can mill around, visit with fellow startups, and enjoy all the great beer.

For more information on how the beer will be judged, see Judging & Awards.
