WeldWerks Brewing Cancels 2021 WeldWerks Invitational
(GREELEY, CO) —WeldWerks Brewing Co. has made the difficult decision to postpone the 2021 WeldWerks Invitational to 2022. The brewery has been closely monitoring public health concerns and after receiving feedback from participating breweries, in which nearly half had expressed that they either would not be attending or on the fence, WeldWerks came to the conclusion that this year’s iteration of the Invitational would not be the world class experience that has become synonymous with the festival.
“Having the makers and the doers from some of the most esteemed breweries across the country be able to pour their best while mingling with beer lovers—that’s what makes the Invitational so special,” says WeldWerks Director of Experience Jake Goodman. “Once we realized that we’d be losing certain aspects of the festival, in addition to the relevant safety concerns, we decided to postpone the festival so that it can be enjoyed to its full effect the following year.”
All ticket holders will be automatically refunded in full. 2021 ticket holders will have the first right of refusal for 2022 tickets. The 2022 WeldWerks Invitational is currently slated for the mid-year.
“The metric that we always measure when it comes to the Invitational is preserving the overall experience of every person involved,” says Goodman. “We’re saddened that we couldn’t pull it off this year but we look forward to an amazing Invitational next year.”
