Weekend off the Wagon – December 13-15

Weekend off the Wagon in your inbox, every Friday
FestivusCover_1024x1024-1 Did you buy your tickets already? I hope you did. Tickets went fast, and even Craigslist is pretty bare.

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, FactotumFormer FutureJagged 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!
