It’s the summer of seltzer, and Denver is celebrating this turn in alcoholic beverages with a festival that’s sure to impress.

Denver will be hosting the first hard seltzer competition and festival with “Fizz Fight.” The festival will have 20 contenders at the EXDO Event Center with two sessions of tasters testing unlimited hard seltzer. The tasters will be a celebrity panel from Colorado to determine the top seltzer in the United States.

The event will include local hard seltzers such as Wild Basin (from Oskar Blues), Snowmelt (from Upslope Brewing) and Elvtd at 5280, along with national brands Natural Light and Bon & Viv.

Tickets start at $33.45 for general admission to $54.66 for VIP. VIP will enjoy early access (and smaller crowds) and take home special swag from our sponsors. General admission will have unlimited 2oz samples of a variety of flavors plus entertainment throughout the day.

The event will also include local artists with live painting and interactive installations.
