It's a benefit for the San Juan County Historical Society.
At an elevation of 9, 318 feet and surrounded by 13,000-foot peaks, Silverton is known for its natural beauty and Old West heritage. Returning for a second summer, it’s also known for hosting one of Colorado’s newest outdoor beer and music festivals.
Beginning at 1 p.m. on Saturday, June 11, bands, breweries, vendors, locals and visitors will fill the softball field at the entrance to town to enjoy the early summertime with friends, family and the local community.
The live music will be provided by some of Southwestern Colorado’s finest rock ‘n roll bands, headlined once again by Durango’s own Lawn Chair Kings. For your dancing pleasure, two more Durango bands, Old North State and The Last Bus will kick things off.
Among the breweries that are confirmed to attend are the Silverton Brewery, SKA Brewing, Carver Brewing Co., San Luis Valley Brewing Co., Ouray Brewery, Ourayle House, Durango Brewing Co., Pug Ryan’s Brewery, and Horsefly Brewing Co. 
Also coming up for the festival will be Vail Brewing, Main Street Brewery and Gunnison Brewery, for a total of 12 breweries on tap.
The event will run from 1 to  6 p.m. and tickets are only $30, which includes a commemorative tasting glass and unlimited tastes.  Designated drivers (and non-drinkers) pay only $15, and kids under 12 are free!  
Tickets are available online by visiting RockinBrews.com.  Following the day’s activities, visitors can attend the official (and free) after-party at the Silverton Brewery with the Old North State beginning at 7 p.m.  
Purchase tickets early online and save $5 !
All proceeds from Silverton Rockin’ Brews will go to support the San Juan County Historical Society.
