Quick guide to brewery hours on the 4th of July

Before these go off en masse, take note of when the breweries are closing shop for the holiday.

Happy Fourth, everyone! As a public service, we did our best to compile the times all of our craft breweries are closing today, if different from normal, and noting which breweries are closed for the day. We want to make sure that if you are going to the source for your craft beer needs on this holiday, you do not show up too late or waste a trip entirely.

If a brewery is not listed below, that is because no info was found online. We would advise you to call them before driving/biking/walking over.

One celebratory craft beer option is the beer garden at the Freedom 4th celebration tonight at Balloon Fiesta Park. Attending local breweries and distilleries will include Abbey Brewing, Bosque, Boxing Bear, Broken Trail, Canteen, Hollow Spirits, La Cumbre, Left Turn, Lost Hiker, Marble, Quarter Celtic, Red Door, Starr Brothers, The 377, Toltec, and Tractor. Admission is free for the event, but you will have to pay by the beer/cider/cocktail.

The most important thing to remember today/tonight is to be safe. Do not risk yourself or others. Use a ride-share service, find a sober friend, or just ask nicely if that couch is a good spot to fade away. We want all of you back at your favorite breweries this weekend, safe and sound.

Now if you will excuse us, Franz Solo is grilling up a metric ton of ribs and bratwursts, so we are off to get fat and happy.
