A few notes about tickets, as well as reminders and details about the festivities:

Tickets
**PLEASE NOTE: As a thanks for their early commitment to 2020's canceled fest, those who purchased tickets to last year's iteration will get the first chance to purchase tickets before there is any full, public sale.

Everyone who purchased tickets last year will receive an email on Tuesday, 6.29 with a special link and unique Eventbrite ticket code for 2021 tickets. These tickets will be offered in the same quantity as the original purchase last year, meaning if you ordered 2 tickets last year you can order up to 2 this year, etc. This pre-sale will start Thursday, 7.1 at 6pm MST and run through Wednesday, 7.7 at 6pm MST. We will also give first shot at the DoubleTree hotel block to 2020 ticket holders, and info about that block will go out on Friday, 7.2 at 10am MST to allow time for ticket sales prior to opening up the block.

**IMPORTANT: due to a number of limiting factors, we've reduced capacity at this year's fest by more than 25%, meaning approximately 500 tickets will be sold for each session. This further means that, depending on what demand ultimately looks like, there is no guarantee for tickets this year even if you purchased tickets in 2020. If you are interested in attending this year's fest, we recommend being online and ready to purchase right at 6pm MST on Thursday, 7.1.

If there are any tickets remaining after the pre-sale is over, those will go on-sale Saturday, 7.10 at 10am MST. We will update everyone via social media as to whether any tickets are actually left and, if so, approximately how many. We thank everyone for their patience with this method, as we only felt it fair to give preference to those who purchased in 2020.

Code of Conduct

Please contact conduct@weldwerks.com if you believe you’ve observed or experienced a violation of this Code of Conduct, and WeldWerks Invitational Festival staff will work to assess the situation and to respond as soon as possible. A phone number to reach WIF staff directly will be provided ahead of the event.

The WeldWerks Invitational Festival (WIF), first and foremost, is about showcasing both the best of craft beer as well as the amazing community that has sprung up and flourished around this ancient beverage. To that end, we at WeldWerks feel a responsibility to ensure the comfort and safety of every single individual involved in the fest, and so we have created the following Code of Conduct that every single participant - be it brewer, staff member, volunteer, attendee, or sponsor - is required to abide by. We want nothing but fun, relaxation and fellowship throughout the entire weekend, and this is one small way of helping to guarantee that for everyone.

Everyone deserves to operate and co-exist in an environment where each individual is treated with dignity and respect. WIF is committed to providing an environment free of discrimination and from abusive, offensive, or harassing behavior. Therefore, all WIF participants, defined as staff, brewers, volunteers, attendees, sponsors and other representatives, must:

  • Treat all individuals and groups respectfully, recognizing their human dignity, regardless of their diverse human characteristics.
  • Contribute to a positive environment that is free of hostile and offensive behaviors in any form, i.e. free of harassment. Harassment is not necessarily sexual in nature although it may be. 
  • Take proactive steps to prevent and stop such behavior. It is not sufficient for participants to merely refrain from engaging in this type of behavior. Refraining from this behavior while knowingly allowing others to engage in it constitutes implied encouragement or tolerance. Participants therefore have an affirmative obligation to speak out against such behavior wherever and whenever they see it.
  • Speak out without fear of retaliation when the actions of others violate the rights of any individuals or groups. Participants that engage in retaliation against those that speak out against harassment are equally as culpable as those that engage in harassment.
  • Respect the opinions of others and address conflicts in a positive and constructive manner.
  • Treat all individuals and groups professionally and respect their personal property.


All event participants agree to abide by this Code of Conduct as a condition to participating in the WIF. WIF may take action in its discretion to address any individual(s) or group(s) it believes fail to meet the standards set forth in this Code of Conduct, including, without limitation, revoking the violating parties’ credentials without refund.

Responsible Alcohol Consumption

  • In consuming alcoholic beverages, participants must adhere to principles of responsible consumption.
  • Participants must protect the reputation of both the WIF and the brewing industry generally by taking steps to ensure no member, including themselves, will break any laws in the process of sharing or consuming of alcohol beverages in association with WIF.
  • Should any participants consume more than a reasonable amount of alcohol and either are or appear to be incapable of functioning, either legally or appropriately, WIF participants accept their duty-to-act to keep those impaired members from breaking any laws and from harming themselves or others.

Reporting

  • Please contact conduct@weldwerks.com if you believe you’ve observed or experienced a violation of this Code of Conduct, and WeldWerks Invitational Festival staff will work to assess the situation and to respond as soon as possible. A phone number to reach WIF staff directly will be provided ahead of the event.
  • Notifying WIF staff does not constitute or replace a notification to local law enforcement. All suspected violations of the law should be reported to local law enforcement. For emergencies, immediately dial 9-1-1. For non-emergencies, the Greeley Police Department is available at (970) 350-9600.

Cool Places in Greeley You Should Visit

909 8th Ave, Greeley, CO 80631
Don’t let the name fool you, Patrick’s is more than your typical Irish Pub. With 25+ taps and a fantastic liquor selection, this is a favorite spot for everyone. The staff is extremely knowledgeable and friendly and Patrick’s offers a one of a kind ambiance. Food trucks are typically available on the weekends.

Plenty of great beers to choose from, in addition to a stellar bourbon selection.

Plenty of great beers to choose from, in addition to a stellar bourbon selection.
817 8th Ave, Greeley, CO 80631
The best spot to catch a flick in Greeley. It is also a full-service bar and restaurant with some of the best cocktails and food in town.

What to order: The Old Fashioned and the charcuterie board are must haves.
728 16th St, Greeley, CO 80631
Roma is a Greeley institution. They have been serving Pizza, Pasta, and Calzones for 30 years. This is a classic college town pizzeria.

What to order: The Caroli is their version of a calzone. Crust made from scratch with 35 different topping options. The Nutty Idea is a local favorite. We also recommend going off menu for the “Bacon Cheeseburger” Meatball, Bacon, Tomato, Cheddar, and Dill Pickles. Start the meal with pepperoni cheese bread and wash it down with a 32oz bazooka beer or cocktail.
813 8th St, Greeley, CO 80631
Brix’s large open windows and garage doors provide a comfortable brew pub experience in downtown Greeley. 60 taps feature a variety of offerings from Colorado breweries with a few out of state gems mixed in. The food menu is dialed in to satisfy any craving.

What to order: Pair a crispy lager with their traditional pub style pretzel or order a few tasters to pair with the brewers board that features three styles of sausage plus cheese and fresh grilled bread.
505 14th Ave, Greeley, CO 80631
This taqueria is tucked into a small market near downtown Greeley. Los Comales has developed an almost cult like following among patrons visiting WeldWerks from out of town.

What to order: Tacos. Tacos. Tacos. All of the selections are served traditionally with onion and cilantro. The Asada and Pastor are phenomenal and the salsa bar takes it over the top. Start your meal with some gooey queso fundido.
2501 8th Avenue, Greeley, CO 80631
Another Greeley institution. Generations of patrons have grown up on Burgers, Fried Chicken, and Root Beer Coolers here. The griddle has cooked millions of burgers.

What to order: The Double Double is the signature burger. It’s a double cheeseburger with all the usual toppings and thousand island dressing. The fried chicken here is cut daily. An order of waffle fries will feed a crowd, and a Root Beer Cooler will take the edge off even a 95 degree afternoon.
806 9th St, Greeley, CO 80631
Luna’s scratch kitchen always strives to serve the highest quality natural ingredients, sourced locally when possible. Luna’s features an innovative menu that pays homage to mexican flavors with a respect for authenticity and a passion for creativity.Their salsas, sauces, and fresh-squeezed juices are hand-made fresh daily in house. The bar serves only the best tequilas, imported and local craft brews, Mexican-style beer, and offers the finest craft tequila-based cocktails.

What to order: Signature tacos, Yuca fries, house Marg, Lulu Old Fashioned and the late night menu if you happen to still be going strong! Two signatures tacos should get you pretty full, order three if you go the street taco route!
722 5th Ave, Greeley, CO 80631
This place truly is a hole in the wall lunch spot. Very limited seating, but within walking distance of the hotel and brewery. Only open until 3pm and closed on the weekends.

What to order: Cheeseburgers. That’s it here, but it’s the best burger in Greeley. The Bob Burger tops their double cheeseburger with grilled ham. It’s a game changer.
1645 8th Ave, Greeley, CO 80631
Colorado based sandwich chain serving toasted subs, salads, and homemade desserts. The patio is “cannabis friendly.” The bar staff here is very engaging and friendly. There are about 10 taps and they also serve cocktails.

What to order: The AK-47 (French Dip) is a favorite. Add their chipotle mayo to bring it over the top. The White Widow and 5-0 are also staff favorites. The salads here are fresh and delicious if you’re looking for a lighter option.
2704 8th Ave, Greeley, CO 80631
Delicious wings and fries. Nuff said.

What to order: The sauces here run the gamut. The Bear Hot sauce WILL ruin your day. Go for the garlic hot. And don’t be afraid to mix sauces. Teriyaki and garlic hot is always solid. The sauce of the month is always fun. We recommend you order some fried cheese or fried mac and cheese as well. You only live once.
829 9th St, Greeley, CO 80631
Looking for some great Colorado-based Mexican food and margs? Look no further. The Rio is your spot. Everything here is made with fresh, local ingredients.

What to order: Any one of their numerous margaritas. You can’t go wrong with the Pork Green Chile or Angus steak burritos.
1702 8th Ave, Greeley, CO 80631
Traditional Japanese fare served in a relaxed college atmosphere.

What to order: Northern Colorado isn’t a seafood mecca, but the sushi here is fresh and priced right. The Bulgogi is also tender and delicious. The noodle offerings will satisfy that craving if it arises.
801 9th St, Greeley, CO 80631
Colorado based diner chain serving all the breakfast and lunch classics in a clean, fun environment. They also serve Mimosa and Bloodies if you need some hair of the dog.

What to order: Huevos Soccoro with Chorizo will cure your festival hangover. The Papas are filling potato scrambles. The omelettes are huge and cooked to order.
715 10th Street, Greeley, CO 80631
Expansive coffee house and a favorite study place for local UNC Students. This is the location of the Brewers Dinner on Thursday, June 21st. Zoe’s staff and owners are close friends of the brewery. Closed Friday-Sunday.

What to order: All of the coffee is sourced from Peru and roasted in small batches. You can’t go wrong.
709 16th Street, Greeley, CO 80631
Local coffee shop serving locally roasted offerings from Novo and Allegro. Relaxed coffee shop vibe that also showcases local artists.

What to order: Order a pour over of one of the offerings from Novo Coffee out of Denver. The cold brew is also great if you’re looking for something on ice. Tea selection is also good as well.
817 8th Avenue, Greeley, CO 80631
Enter through the Kress doors, walk downstairs and flip the switch at the bottom left of the stairs. Leave the light on, someone will come get you! This awesome hidden cocktail bar specializes in seasonal offerings using the highest quality ingredients.

What to order: If it is on the menu you’ll be in good shape…

What To Do In Northern Colorado

75 Minutes West of Greeley on Highway 34
Estes Park is a vibrant mountain town at the gates of Rocky Mountain National Park. The town has extensive shopping and dining. We recommend Wapiti Pub, Grubsteak, and Smokin Daves BBQ if you’re hungry. Rocky Mountain Saltwater Taffy is a can’t miss stop. You can unleash your inner child here too with go karts and putt putt golf.

Rocky Mountain National Park is one of the jewels of Colorado. The park can be explored by car or along the many trails. You can drive Trail Ridge Road to the 12,100 foot apex and enjoy wildlife and wildflowers from your car. The park does have a $25 entrance fee per vehicle.
Most outfitters will depart from LaPorte which is a 35-45 minute drive from Greeley
The Poudre is a great little run for a half day rafting adventure. Amateurs and veterans will enjoy the class 3 and 4 rapids. The snowpack was light this year, but there should still be plenty of adventure to be had the week of the festiva

l.A bonus of the rafting trip can be lunch at Mishawaka Amphitheater. They have a great deck overlooking the river and serve delicious traditional bar food.
Downtown Greeley and Lincoln Park
Friday Fest is a weekly celebration in Downtown Greeley featuring live music. The city closes down the downtown area and patrons can purchase a “go cup” which they can fill with any number of beers and cocktails from restaurants and bars downtown. Who doesn’t like drinking in public?

WeldWerks is sponsoring the Friday Fest on June 22nd. The musical guest that week is Gasoline Lollipops. We highly encourage you to come down to the Invitational Tap Takeover at Patricks and enjoy one of the best parties in Northern Colorado.
680 10th Street.
Open until 4pm, $10 Admission

It may sound odd we’d recommend this to our visiting brewers, but this museum is really a fantastic place to visit. You’ll be hard pressed not to feel like you’re 8 years old again on Christmas morning.
902 7th Ave
Open Saturday at 8am

Located in the old Greeley Train Depot this is a great spot to stretch your legs and enjoy a cool Colorado morning. You can grab any number of breakfast treats and coffee, or some local honey, jam, or jerky to take home.
Trailheads located at various points in Greeley. Visit http://www.poudretrail.org/ for detailed information.
This extensive trail system runs along the Cache la Poudre River from Greeley all the way to Windsor. It is great for walking. We recommend the walk from the Signature Bluffs Natural Area to the Poudre River Learning Center. Sightings are rarer in the Summer, but you may catch a glimpse of a Bald Eagle soaring above the river or perched above the trail.
1 mile south of WeldWerks
UNC is a cornerstone of the Greeley Community. The school has grown rapidly with Greeley over the last 20 years and boasts over 12,000 students. Many Graduate and Doctoral students spend their off hours at WeldWerks. The “Old Campus” just south of the brewery is well manicured with many walking paths and features diverse types of architecture.
802 9th Street
Intimate concert venue located in Downtown Greeley. Visit https://www.moxitheater.com/ for event and ticket information
Island Grove Regional Park just northwest of WeldWerks
This year marks the 97th year of the famous rodeo and concert series. Roughly 250,000 people visit Greeley during this 12 day party. Country artist Dustin Lynch will play on Friday night, and Darius Rucker will take the stage Saturday after the Festival. The Carnival and Food Court offer all of the guilty pleasures you’d expect. Parking is $10 and admission is $5.
