The time is here. Saturday is the day you can try all of Denver’s breweries in one spot for your drinking pleasure at the Denver Beer Festivus. Exciting new breweries will be there, such as Diebolt, Factotum, Former Future, Jagged Mountain and Station 26.
It’s also time to break out those ugly sweaters, people. They’ll get you into a few events this weekend, and maybe even some prizes if it’s especially horrendous.
Christmas shopping is stressful. Drinking isn’t. Take a load off and check out what’s going on this weekend. Cheers!
