Wynkoop turns to the Dark Side for their 3rd Annual Parade of Darks

Winter was made for the burly man.  Men shave less, chop firewood, and drink manly beer when it gets cold.  Gone are the months where a nice pint of blonde, pilsner, or hefeweizen would hit the spot; now beer geeks are turning to the dark side: stouts, porters, barleywines and others of that ilk.  Where can a macho, dark-beer drinking dude go to hang out with others of his kind?  Wynkoop‘s 3rd Annual Parade of Darks, that’s where!

The event will be held on Saturday, December 3rd at Wynkoop.  Over 50 beers from Colorado, other parts of the U.S., and Belgium will be at the party and none of them will be wimpy, yellow ones so, men, grow a beard, smoke a cigar, and come to Wynkoop to bask in the masculinity.  Despite my posturing, ladies are also most welcome.

The event starts at 1pm.  Tickets are $25 if bought early and $30 if bought at the door.  100% of the ticket sales go to Metro CareRing.  Admission is limited to 300 people.

    Lest anybody get confused, the event is indeed on the 3rd. The official poster says the 4th but, what can I say, its wrong. Saturday the 3rd.

    Since the tickets are sold online through Ticket Alternative, does the $2.75 “service charge” go to Metro Carering? Not trying to nit pick, but if my options are to spend $30 at the door and give 100% of that to the charity, I’ll do that instead of spending $27.75, and having $2.75 of that go to Ticket Alternative. Just trying to maximize my charitable contribution!

      I can’t say for sure but I would imagine that the $2.75 does indeed go to Ticket Alternative. If you are looking to contribute as much to Metro CareRing as possible, I’d play it safe and pay at the door. Of course, the flip side is that only 300 tickets are available and, if you come too late, none of your money will go to charity.
