It’s time to get punk in drublic again! Created from the slightly insane mind and, probably dying, livers of NOFX’s front man, Fat Mike and craft beer fanatic and occasional festival promoter, Cameron Collins, the Punk In Drublic Craft Beer & Music Festival is actually a series of events that take place in various cities across the US and also makes a few stops in Europe over the summer. Featuring the very best in punk rock music and regional craft beer. Punk In Drublic Colorado will be held at Fiddler’s Green Amphitheatre in Greenwood Village and will feature up to three hours of craft beer tastings showcasing an impressive selection of craft beers, including some of the region’s best and local favorites.

Aside from that, a short note from the festival creator, Fat Mike saying, “I’m really looking forward to playing these shows for many reasons, I literally spent minutes calling bands and putting this line up together… So if you’re gonna go to one punk show this year…go to one of these; they’re outdoors!” The lineup for Punk In Drublic, Colorado, 2022 is festival headliners NOFX, along with Pennywise, Circle Jerks, The Suicide Machines, Adolescents, T.S.O.L., Dwarves, The Bridge City Sinners, Bad Cop/Bad Cop, PKEW PKEW PKEW, Cheap Perfume and All Waffle Trick.
Punk rockers, NOFX formed in Los Angeles, California, in 1983. They are, lead singer and bassist Fat Mike, guitarist Eric Melvin, drummer Erik Sandin, and lead guitarist and trumpeter El Hefe. NOFX’s mainstream success coincided with increased interest in punk rock during the 90s, though, unlike many of their contemporaries, including Bad Religion, Green Day and The Offspring, they have never been signed to a major label. They have released fourteen studio albums, sixteen extended plays, and a number of seven-inch singles. The band rose to popularity with their fifth studio album, Punk in Drublic, in 1994, featuring some of their biggest hits like “Linoleum,” “Don’t Call Me White” and “Leave It Alone.” It is the bands most successful album to date, peaking at number 12 on Billboard’s Heatseekers chart, and is their only release to receive gold certification by the RIAA. The album has received positive reviews and is now considered a classic punk album by fans and critics alike.
“Punk in Drublic Craft Beer and Music Festival – the huge punk music and beer festival – blows away previous Punk in Drublic shows every year because each festival is bigger and better than the one before. That is really hard to do since each one is filled to the brim with talent and tasty brewskies. These incredible festivals are the brainchild of NOFX’s Fat Mike and festival promoter/craft beer fanatic/ Rad Brat/Rad Beer co-creator, Cameron Collins. If you’ve ever experienced a festival put on by Collins, you know they are well thought out and nothing is overlooked. Ample bathrooms? Check. Plenty of food choices? Check. Delicious beer and drinks? Check. Radical tunes for your musical pleasure? Check.” – by Rachael Contreras for OC Music News.
