Denver Summer Brew Fest


So there’s 96 days until GABF (not that you’re counting), what are you going to do??  Lucky for you, it’s only the beginning of beer fest season!  It seems like there’s something going on just about every weekend to help get you through.  One in particular I’m looking forward to is the Denver Summer Brew Fest on July 22nd at the Mile High Station.

From the Denver Brew Fest:

The Summer Brew Fest at Mile High Station will celebrate craft beverages from around Colorado and other U.S. microbrews and feature live local music, food, and other vendors. This event benefits Swallow Hill Music Association.

Swallow Hill serves a large community with instruction and performance of musical art forms such as folk, blues, bluegrass, Celtic jazz, world, roots, and dance.

Still not sold?  Here are a few more specifics from their website:

  • Over 100 brews to sample from more than 39 craft breweries
  • Souvenir glasses, live music, food, and local vendors round out the event
  • Get funked with live music by Bop Skizzum

Tickets are available here and there are two ways to get in.  VIP Admission (6pm-7pm) gets a pint in your hand an hour earlier and allows you to beat the crowds for first pours ($40 in advance, $45 day of).  There will also be an exclusive beer + cheese pairing during the VIP session.  General Admission tickets (7pm-10pm) will still allow you to sample all of the 100+ craft beer offerings, live music, and food for a slightly lower price tag ($30 in advance, $35 day of).

Perhaps it’s time to start a new countdown… because 28 is way less depressing than 96.

I’ll be at the Denver Summer Brew Fest so make sure you come find me so I can get some pictures of our fans doing what they do best… drinking!  What brew fest are you most looking forward to before GABF?
