Real Ale Real Love Firkin Fest Returns to Loveland

LOVELAND, CO – Grimm Brothers Brewhouse and Verboten Brewing are thrilled to announce the return of Real Ale Real Love Firkin Festival on March 4th. RARL will be a small intimate event (only 250 tickets available) held in The Garden Room at 697 N. Denver Ave, just behind the Grimm Brother’s taproom. This unique festival will showcase one-of-a-kind-beers by some of the best local breweries Northern Colorado has to offer. The small amount of beer used to make the firkins allows the brewers to push the envelope and try new experimental flavor combinations that wouldn’t be cost effective on a larger scale.

We designed RARL with the guest’s interest in mind. We wanted to give people the unique opportunity to interact with the brewers that made and designed the beers they’re drinking. People at the festival will have the opportunity to chat with the brewers about the beers they made and the flavor profiles they were hoping would come out in the firkins. People’s choice will determine the winner of The Best of Show, and that winner will be the proud owner of the RARL trophy for an entire year. Look for promo events in Loveland and Fort Collins throughout February for chances to win tickets, they can also be purchased at either Verboten or Grimm Brothers, or online at
