The Biergarten is a great time and for a great cause as all proceeds go toward the community club’s roof fund.

We are excited to bring the 3rd Annual Biergarten Fundraiser to the Black Forest Community again this year. All proceeds go toward the “Raise the Roof” campaign to help provide a desperately needed new roof to the Black Forest Community Center.

The Black Forest Community Center is a log-building that was built by the community in 1924 and still stands at the corner of Black Forest and Shoup Roads. The Community Center has been the site of many events over the years, including concerts, weddings, dinners, holiday celebrations, craft fairs, and the Black Forest Festival.  We hope you can attend the Black Forest Biergarten, you will have a great time while helping to maintain a pivotal force in the heart of our community.

Based on current guidelines, NO Masks, social distancing, or capacity limits are required this year! We have a selection of beers, meads, ciders, and even wines from local breweries to sample. We are excited to have Rocky Mountain Brewery, Pikes Peak Brewing Company, Black Forest Meadery, JAKs Brewing Company, Lost Friend Brewing Company, and Storybook Brewing confirmed so far (and we are working on a few more!). Our musical entertainment for the evening is Wirewood Station, champs of the “Best Acoustic Band in Colorado” at the Rocky Mountain Music Festival as well as winning the “Best Band in Colorado Springs” by the readers of the Gazette for 3 years in a row!

It will be a great evening out in the beautiful Black Forest with drinks, music, and food.

Tickets are required and can be purchased online via Eventbrite. Tickets are capped at 280 to maintain our cozy forest feel. If the event does not sell out, tickets can be purchased at the door. Each ticket includes:

  • Souvenir Beer Sampler Glass
  • Unlimited Beer Samples

Born out of our love of brewing, Rocky Mountain Brewery has established itself as a World Class Brewer with best in class winners that never fail to please. Our continued excellence begins with finding the right, high-quality ingredients to create our amazing line of Brewed Wonders.  

We established our Monument, Colorado brewery in 2011 as a place for our community to connect and come together. At Pikes Peak Brewing, we believe the best beers are ones shared with friends and we hope that wherever you find a Pikes Peak Beer, it finds you in good company.

Our winery is nestled in the Black Forest Colorado. The company was created in 2007, and our sons help in the planting of the vines. Black Forest Meadery is a winery that is 100% Colorado. Everything we sell is made here in Colorado. From wine to cheese, we have everything you need. We invite you to come out to enjoy our sunsets with friends and family. 

At JAKs, we draw our traditions from two great Air Force legacies, those of the 26th Space Aggressor Squadron (26 SAS) and the 310thBombardment Group (today, the 310th Space Wing) in which our founders proudly served. So, while JAKs makes “Aggressive Beer for Aggressive Beer Drinkers,” we are unapologetically family-focused, community-oriented, and proud of our roots. We show it in our emblem, our motto, the images on our walls, our never-ending quest to brew and serve the perfect pint, and our desire to share it all with you.

We want the Lost Friend Brewing Company to be your neighborhood brewery, even if you don’t actually live in our neighborhood. We work hard to make quality beer that appeals to people from all walks of life. We pride ourselves on being very dog friendly, though we also welcome other well-behaved, leashed pets.We aim for you to be able to enjoy our beer and bring in a friend who doesn’t drink beer; we’ll have something to change their mind. Through it all we will stay grounded with a solid foundation and passion for the science of brewing, and having a true community conscience. 

Storybook Brewing is a Colorado Springs based nano brewery with a 15 barrel brew house. All of our beers are hand crafted with the freshest ingredients. We may be into fantasy, but we use real ingredients. Our Story begins with balanced classics like a porter or kölsch while using innovating techniques and ingredients to keep it interesting.

Both dream and reality: As a local family business, Storybook Brewing could never have happened without the help of family and friends. After all, what is beer if you cannot share it with friends and family.

Black Forest Brewing Company began with a passion for brewing and a love of community. We are proud to be a truly local brewery where you can bring your whole family to enjoy new things around familiar faces. At the Black Forest Brewing Co., you’ll find pieces of the Black Forest in everything we do – whether it’s from our bar shelves – handcrafted from reclaimed wood from the Black Forest Fire – or from the local ingredients in our brews which we get from local farmers and businesses. 

We are proud to call the Black Forest home, and we invite you to gather with us. 

BEST FOOD TRUCK2017, 2018, 2019!

The Black Forest Chew-Chew is a locally owned Gastrotruck offering weekly changing menus featuring International Comfort Food as well as catering for off-site events.

We are a family owned and operated bakery. We primarily sell our baked goods at farmers markets and festivals. We make about 15 kinds of bread, Bavarian pretzels, sticky buns, apple strudel, stollen, scones, and an amazing bread dipping sauce. Hand made gourmet breads from Styria Bakery are made with a natural starter, reducing the need of commercial yeast and any number of preservatives added by other bakeries.

What do you get when you put a Classical Violinist (now fiddle player), a couple of  Bluegrass Guitarists and a Jazz Bassist in the same room… Award winning WireWood Station!  This eclectic group of musicians are the reigning champs of the “Best Acoustic Band in Colorado” at the Rocky Mountain Music Festival as well as winning the “Best Band in Colorado Springs” by the readers of the Gazette for 3 years in a row!

The Colorado Springs Rugby Football Club will be providing security and crowd control at the Biergarten. The Club was formed in 1969 and adopted the ‘Grizzlies’ as its mascot.  The club has a long and proud history – including winning the 2017/8 Rocky Mountain Men’s Championship – and in 2019 we celebrated our 50th year. 

The club proudly trains and plays hard and has a lot of fun away from the pitch.
