Is this a rhetorical question? :wink: Can't speak to Breck, but Durango had lots o' beer at its Oktoberfest fund-raiser for a local nonprofit this past weekend, including the annual ceremonial tapping of the Bootleggers Society special Oktoberfest brew. :iluvbeer:

Breck ski resort has a pic of the festivities on their FB page:

Was up there on Friday, the weather was fantastic and so was the fall color near Hartsel and Hoosier Pass. Crowds were much more manageable compared to what I heard it was like on Saturday.

It appeared a tad early for the area around Woodland Park. I'm thinking head up there this weekend and have another Oktoberfest at Bierworks.
