Blitzenbanger returns to Highlands

Mark your calendars: The Blitzenbanger party is set for March 8 at Aspen Highlands.

The annual birthday party for KSPN also will include a new beer festival with a Hawaiian luau theme, with live music from 1 to 6 p.m. at the mountain base.

On tap will be an unlimited-tasting beer festival with suds provided by 10 to 15 local and regional brewers. The list of attending breweries includes Aspen Brewing Co., Deschutes Brewery and Oskar Blues Brewery.

Brew-Au tickets for unlimited beer tasting can be purchased the day of the event for $20, from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., at the Aspen Highlands base area. All beer-tasting tickets pre-purchased by Friday include a complimentary Blitzenbanger T-shirt. A portion of the proceeds from the Blitzenbanger Brew-Au will be donated to the United Way of Garfield and Pitkin counties.

Additionally, Highlands Ale House will host a pig roast and barbecue on its deck, and Aloha Mountain Cyclery will showcase fat-bike demos with an on-snow course for guests to ride.

Music performances include Eminence Ensemble, The Starletts and more. An on-mountain scavenger hunt will be held for such prizes as a $500 guided backcountry ski tour from Aspen Expeditions; a season parking pass for Aspen Highlands, valued at $395; catering gift certificates from Heidi’s Deli; and passes to the Aspen Recreation Center, among others.
