It’s already August, folks. What?! We’re upon the last month for summer festivals and brew fests, so pay attention!
If you haven’t heard of the Justice League of Street Food, I feel sorry for you, son. Their final bash is this Saturday with all of your favorite food trucks and a full bar alongside Avery Brewing’s finest. Bring your dog, your date, your mom or your pet rock. I won’t judge.
Want out of the city? Maybe cool off with some smooth tunes at Telluride’s Jazz Festival all weekend with Telluride Brewing Company keeping you company with their thirst-quenching offerings. Or check out the Renaissance Festival’s last weekend if you haven’t already (I know I haven’t had my fill of turkey legs and mead yet).
There’s a ton more events going on this weekend. Make it one that counts!
Also, SAVE THE DATE: tickets are on sale for Endless Summer, August 16. Proceeds go to Water for People (let’s help save water, yeah? We need that). Some of the breweries and distilleries attending are Great Divide, Ska, Odell, Breckenridge, Strange, Denver Beer Co, Crazy Mountain, Spring 44, Peach Street, Golden Moon, and many many more to look forward to!
