Still on the Hill returns next weekend in Breck

Heads-up, spirit-lovers.

No, not you religious types. I'm talking about hooch — booze — spirits! (Though God-fearing drinkers are, of course, welcome.)

The Breckenridge Craft Spirits Festival returns Oct. 5 through 7, with its very worthwhile Still on the Hill grand tasting taking place from 4 to 7 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 6. (Tickets here.)

Check out an extensive look at the event I provided around this time last year, here.

Breckenridge Still on the Hill Craft Spirits
  • Matthew Schniper
  • Breckenridge Distillery helps host spirit-makers from around the region for an awesome tasting at Breck's Riverwalk Center.

The deal: $20 gets you admission and a souvenir tasting glass, unlimited samples and gourmet snacks all set to the tune of live bluegrass.

And here's some more info on the larger weekend, via the Breckenridge Resort Chamber's Rachel Zerowin:
