Make that “spicy” beer.

The Snowmass Chili Pepper & Brew Fest promises all that and more Friday and Saturday at the ski resort town in the Colorado Rockies.

Here’s what will be on tap:

  • More than 100 craft beers, including some chile pepper-infused brews such as the notorious and limited Ghost Face Killah by Boulder’s Twisted Pine Brewing Co.
  • A Best Summer Ale Brew Fest 2011 competition, and a separate homebrew competition.
  • A chili cooking competition, with cooks vying for a spot in the International Chili Society’s 2011 World Chili & Salsa Championship and competing for more than $3,000 in prize money.
  • Music from Jamaican reggae legends Black Uhuru (Friday night) and the Tedeschi Trucks Band, featuring Grammy-winning slide guitar virtuoso Derek Trucks and his wife, Susan Tedeschi (Saturday). Opening bands are Boombox on Friday and Carbon Choir on Saturday.

Road Trips for Beer correspondent Ryan Whaley will be covering the festival (he’ll be judging, too). You can follow his live tweets here. We’ll have his review and pictures next week, and maybe even a video.
