Alternative Rock Group Flobots Headlines Loveland Oktoberfest

Flobots music group play at Loveland Oktoberfest.

Now back for year four is the Loveland Oktoberfest 2014 held at Thunder Mountain Harley-Davidson on Saturday, September 20th, 2014.  Northern Colorado sponsors keep making this Oktoberfest bigger and better every year.  The festivities begin at 11:00 am in the parking lot with Oktoberfest beers, foods and fun.   The music for the evening starts at 4:00 pm at the adjacent Thunder Mountain Amphitheatre.  The venue is located at 4250 Byrd Drive, Loveland, Colorado.

It was started four years ago by the Grimm Brothers Brewhouse.  Grimm’s is the oldest craft brewer in Northern Colorado and a two time medal winner at the Great American Beer Festival.  Oktoberfest was a natural given the many German style Lagers and Ales served at Grimm’s.  It didn’t take long for this event to take off in size.

Clear Channel Media and Thunder Mountain Harley-Davidson are but two of the sponsors for this years attraction.  Sponsors Best Western, Loveland Colorado, KissFM Colorado, Radio 94.9 and Big Country 97.9 will make sure the word is out on this event.

Beers companies include Samuel Adams, Grow Hop Brewing, Grimm Brothers Brewhouse, Loveland Aleworks, Big Beaver Brewing, Verboten Brewing, and Rock Bottom Brewery.  This should be a tasty event.

Loveland, Colorado is located just 45 minutes north of Denver.  It is at the foothills of the Rocky Mountain National Park.  The area has sunshine 300 days a year.  Now more than just an arts community, it features brewers and brewery tours, world class recreation, restaurants and shopping.

Loveland Oktoberfest Entertainment:

While entry into the Oktoberfest is free that nights entertainment has an $18 advance ticket price.  Featured music by the Flobots, Proverbial, and The Epilogues promise to rock the night away.  Seems strange to have an alternative rock group like the Flobots headlining an Oktoberfest.  However the environment is a big issue in Colorado so the Flobots with their environment themed social conscious agenda and music is really a perfect fit to attract a younger and larger crowd.
