Black Forest Biergarten Fundraiser
Friday, August 12th
6:00pm - 9:00pm
Black Forest Community Center
Tickets have SOLD OUT. Designated Drivers or those that want to see Wirewood Station can purchase tickets at the door for $5. These tickets include access to the event to see the band and a bottled water or soda.
We are excited to bring the 4th Annual Biergarten Fundraiser to the Black Forest again this year. The 2022 Black Forest Biergarten is a night out with music, beer and fun.
We are turning our fundraising efforts to further restoration of the Black Forest Community Center and to further recovery of the 4.7 acres of the Community Center that were devastated by the 2013 Black Forest Fire. After the fire, members of the community donated money and time to clear the burned trees; this reclaimed area is affectionately called “The Backyard.” The resilient Black Forest Community has put The Backyard to good use. The area now hosts community gardens and has been home to the Farmers Market, the Christmas Market, the Community Trunk-or-Treat, and the Black Forest Festival. The community has gotten so much use from The Backyard that we would like to further restore and develop the area. We hope you will join the 4th Annual Black Forest Biergarten Fundraiser to support the Black Forest Community Center and continued recovery efforts from the 2013 Black Forest Fire.
Since the current economic climate is challenging to so many people, we are reducing the tickets for the Black Forest Biergarten to $15 per person! This is less than half of the cost of tickets in 2021. The $15 ticket price will pay for musical entertainment from Wirewood Station, a custom souvenir pint glass from the event, and a fill of the pint glass with your choice of beer from one of our featured breweries. You can choose to fill the entire pint glass with your choice of brew, or you can try two different half-pint samples. Additional pints of beer, or additional half-pint samples, are available for purchase:
-(1) ticket for (1) half-pint, $3.00
-(2) tickets for (2) half-pints or one full pint, $5.00
-(5) tickets for (5) half-pints or 2 & 1/2 pints, $10.00
Sodas and bottled water will also be available for purchase.
Based on current guidelines, NO masks, social distancing, or capacity limits are required for the Biergarten this year! We have several featured local breweries. Our musical entertainment for the evening is Wirewood Station, voted “Best Band in Colorado Springs” three years in a row. Local food trucks will be there if you decide to have dinner in the Forest during the event. It will be a great evening out in the beautiful Black Forest with drinks, music, and food.

Thank You Colorado Springs Rugby Club
We would like to extend a very special note of appreciation to the Colorado Springs Rugby Club.
The Men’s Rugby Team, the Grizzlies, has provided security and peace-keeping to the Black Forest Biergarten since the event began four years ago.
We are very sad to have recently lost Beau Lee. Beau was a long-time Black Forest resident, Grizzlies Men’s Rubgy Head Coach, and Vice President for the Colorado Springs Rugby Club. Beau played all levels of rugby during his 35 years of playing, and played professional rugby in the US and Europe. Beau was passionate about the growth of rugby, especially in Colorado Springs and within our US military, and he worked hard to move the sport forward.
Members of the Grizzlies Men’s Rugby Team will be providing security at the Black Forest Biergarten again this year in honor of Beau. We wil make sure to raise a glass in Beau’s honor.
