It’s not like I need an excuse to down a few spiked seltzers, because ya know, #WhiteClawSummer. But give me one (like, say, an event that revolves entirely around the beverage) and I’ll drop any and all responsibilities to go.
This isn’t some pipe dream either! Fizz Fight, the first-ever spiked seltzer festival, is a one-day Denver-based affair promising three full hours of unlimited booze, over 60 seltzer styles, and a whole bunch of food trucks (hello, drunchies!).
“While it has been the summer of White Claw, we’re excited to be able to give a platform to locally produced craft seltzers, too,” a rep for the event said. “From Oskar Blues to Upslope, there are innovative flavors coming out every week that consumers would never hear about if it wasn’t for a crazy one day party.”
Here’s how it works: Buy a ticket (they’re on sale today! $30 for regular and $50 for VIP!) and choose a session. General admission will get you a three hour tasting window while those exclusive VIP passes have a three and a half hour time frame. There will be 20-plus brewers present, more than 60 styles to choose from, art exhibits, food, vendors, and more.
Though the September 14 kickoff event is located in Colorado (RIP to the rest of us), Fizz Fight does have expansion plans. Which means Austin, Atlanta, Los Angeles, Miami, New Orleans, San Diego, and Tucson events are all in the works.
