If you’re not suffering from the grim spector of illness like so many are from the change in weather, then I suggest you go out and enjoy the Denver Oktoberfest festivities starting tonight.
Obviously, Prost Brewing Company has already started early, but it’d make sense to visit them at some point, being Denver’s most authentic German brewery, right? I’ll “prost” to that!
Saturday is a big day for Epic Brewing. They’ll be opening their doors to their Denver location to the general public around 2 p.m. David was one of the lucky ones to get a sneak peak of the brewery yesterday. I’m pretty sure he’s still feeling his enjoyment from the 25 beer selection today.
Now go bundle up and check out this weekend’s lineup!
Starting Friday, 5 p.m.
Grab your stein, throw on your lederhosen and get ready for Denver’s 44th annual Oktoberfest!
