If you’re like us here at the Wagon, then you probably dread any and all shopping experiences during the next week and onward.
If finding yourself in the middle of a tug-of-war match with a stranger over the last turkey doesn’t sound ideal to you, then we suggest getting it out of the way early, or better yet, have someone else do it while you take on the important job of stocking up on the booze this holiday season.
This time of year always means it’s the time for holiday brews to start making their way to our hearts and pint glasses. American Craft Beer Radio is hosting their annual Holiday Beer Bash to put a few of them in one place for you. Thirty breweries will be pouring nearly 100 beers for you tonight from 6-9 p.m. at Mile High Station along with food from local chefs.
A personal favorite haunt of mine, Denver Bicycle Cafe, is also celebrating its 2nd Birthday this Saturday with special pint glasses designed by the amazing Jackie herself. Lots of good and unique beer will be on tap, and your ticket already gets you two draft pours. Get your bike snow-ready and head on down to party town.
