The holiday lights are lit, the cocoa is hot, and the 30-foot inflatable snowman is back – it’s beginning to look a lot like Brewery Lights at the Anheuser-Busch Biergarten and Tour Center in Fort Collins! The fifth annual Brewery Lights celebration begins Nov. 15, with guests of all ages invited to spread holiday cheer at a variety of festive activities during the wonderful holiday experience.
To kick off the holiday season, the community is invited to a festive lighting ceremony on Nov. 15. The world-famous Budweiser Clydesdales will be in town to help Mayor Wade Troxell and Brewery General Manager Gene Bocis “flip the switch” at 5 p.m. to officially mark the start of this year’s Brewery Lights celebrations.
The Budweiser Clydesdales will be available for photos during the opening ceremony until 7:00 p.m. For those who can’t wait until opening night, the Clydesdales will be available for photos on Sunday, Nov. 10 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. ahead of the Brewery Lights kickoff. The Clydesdales will also be available for photos after Brewery Lights is underway, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Nov. 17, 23 and 24.
Outside of these photo opportunities, the Clydesdales will be in the stables and out in the paddock for guests to view and enjoy during regular hours at the Biergarten from Nov 7-24.
Brewery Lights is open every Friday through Sunday, from 5 to 9 p.m. Nov. 15 through Dec. 29. New this year, guests can participate in a unique 4D holiday photo opportunity that puts them in the center of an oversized lighted present.
