Fort Collins Area Viewing of the 119th Army-Navy Football Game

Posted: 10/30/2018

Fort Collins area Army & Navy alumni will gather at the The Biergarten in the Anheuser-Busch Brewery, Fort Collins, on Saturday, December 8, for the Second Annual Viewing of the Army/Navy Football Game!  The A-B Brewery is located at 2351 Busch Drive off of Mountain Vista Drive (I-25, Exit 271) in Fort Collins, Colorado.

A-B has seating for 100 people, and RSVP’s will be on a first-come, first-served basis. A final headcount must be submitted by 12/1/18, so reserve your place ASAP. Overflow beyond the first 100 people will be standing room only, up to an additional 85 people.  A-B will be hosting a 5K Sweaty Sweater fun run from 0800-1200 on the 8th. Reserved seating for the A/N game viewing will open thereafter at 1200. Food and drink will be off of a limited menu, with each group responsible for its own tab.  The first round of Budweiser or Bud Light will be on the house for all veterans in attendance. Likewise, A-B will extend a discount for The Biergarten (food and bar) and Gift Shop.

There are several activities to enjoy at the brewery alongside the A/N game viewing.  The last tour of the brewery is at 1600. A-B will also host its Brewery Lights from 1700 to 2100, which includes light displays, complimentary beer tasting, a lighted Christmas tree maze and $1 Christmas train rides for the kiddos, a life-sized Lite Bright, fire pits, and opportunities for the kids to make s’mores over the fire ($10 for two people)!

A-B supports Folds of Honor (, a non-profit charity that provides educational scholarships to the children and spouses of fallen and disabled service members. All attendees are encouraged to bring a donation for this worthy charity as a thank you to A-B for hosting our viewing again this year.

We hope to continue to grow our Ft Collins area group and to make this viewing an annual event we can be proud of.  To RSVP or if you’d like to make a donation toward the purchase of lanyards, decorations, and spirit gear, please contact the event organizer, Shannon Bican Sharrock, USMA ’97, directly at (970) 556-4089;
