Weekend off the Wagon (Intern Edition) – June 21-23

Weekend off the Wagon in your inbox, every Friday

Greetings, folks! The Wagon intern here–PJ thought I could take a break from making bacon runs for the office to updating you on this upcoming weekend.

So here goes nothing!

The weekend forecast is calling for clear skies and high temperatures, so I’d check out the 24th Annual Colorado Brewer’s Festival to sip & sample the 80+ local beers that will be featured there. The event’s tip-off, the All Brewers’ Eve, will be tomorrow at 7 p.m. where you can try some very special and unique brews along with delicious and locally sourced food. The festival itself starts on Saturday and ends at 6 p.m. on Sunday. Go (responsibly) enjoy some good drinks, food and music for me!

Beer not your thing or want something to do in Denver? Then stay tuned and keep reading, friends!
