A sneak peek at Wynkoop’s Beers of the Year

There’s one thing for sure: Wynkoop knows how to throw a party.  I mean, our Governor used to work there.  So it’s no wonder that they have some big headliners, reserve listers, and some hush-hush advanced sips of The Chancellor (single malt, single hop, barrel-aged strong ale that they’ve been aging in whiskey barrels since it was brewed in January).  Sounds like a grand time.

Beers of the Year 2011, Oct. 22 from 1-4:30 PM, upstairs at Wynkoop Brewing Company.  Tickets are $25 in advance and available at www.wynkoop.com . Day-of-show tickets are $30 at the door.  Advance ticket buyers are entered into a drawing for two pairs of tickets to Wynkoop’s December 3rd Parade of Darks holiday/dark beer tasting and fundraiser for local food pantry Metro CareRing.
