Hi everyone. Is it finally feeling like Fall where you are? Seriously it’s been a fall kind of week here in Denver. Full of cloudy and rainy days (boo) I miss the sunshine. But thankfully the weather is looking up for the weekend. It’s been a busy week of doctors appointments trying to figure out the mystery that is my health. Hoping to have some answers for myself this week, and then hoping to share them with all of you soon. BUT on a lighter and more flavorful note, I wanted to chat with you about Telluride Blues and Brews Festival. If you saw my instagram, I had a great time in the mountains a few weeks ago with my friends from Texas. The festival was all over my stories, but I’m excited to share the true pictures with you guys on the blog.
My friends came in town on Thursday evening, and on Friday we spent the morning walking around Wash Park in Denver and hitting up a few of our favorite spots. We left a little later than expected, but we enjoyed the morning. We made the 6.5 hour drive to Telluride while stopping for lunch in Palisade, Colorado. Palisade is known for their peaches, and we stopped at the cutest cafe along the way.
Friday afternoon, we checked into our Airbnb and we walked around town. It was pretty quiet because a lot of people were at a concert. We ended up eating dinner and getting cocktails at a Thai restaurant called Siam, the food was decent, but nothing to write home about.
Thai Green Curry (but I think I make better)
My friend got a scallops entree over rice with sauce, it was the best thing we had there!

Saturday morning, we walked to town again and grabbed breakfast at The Butcher and Baker cafe. It was so cute! The food was really good too, and my friends loved their coffee! I would definitely go there again, I got their chilaquiles and they were so tasty! After that we stopped in a few stores and I got a new Patagonia jacket that I’m really excited about. I have cuter (aka less warm) fall jackets and then I have winter coats. But my new Patagonia is shaping up to be a great in between coat for chilly mornings.
Afterwards, we got ready and went down to the festival. The festival is in Telluride Town Park, and there is beer tasting from 56 different breweries and 170 different beers. There is also live Bluegrass music on the stage all day. We didn’t attend any of the headliners, but the Bluegrass music was great for the beer tasting. We tried to many beers from our taster cups, and they were delicious. What are your favorite types of beers? I like blondes, wheats, and sours!
Sunday morning, we went on a hike to Bear Creek Falls (it was a pretty moderate hike that was mostly uphill). The waterfall was really pretty. After the hike, we went to brunch at the Hotel Sheridan, where I got chilaquiles again and then we headed out of town.
Telluride was a really cool town and I will definitely be back! Have you ever been to Telluride?
