Colorado Craft Beer week tapped out on Sunday and the Craft Brewers Conference (CBC) doesn’t start until next week, so what are you going to do this week? Don’t get discouraged – your next craft beer is just around the corner.

Many beers released at Collaboration Fest, like Epic Brewing & Elevation Brewing’s Blackberry Saison, are making a second appearance at taprooms throughout the state so you can keep the craft beer celebration alive and kicking.

Here is a list of spots to snag a last sip of collaboration – well, until next week when Oskar Blues and the Colorado Brewers Guild’s Centennial Pale Ale hits local taps in celebration of CBC.

About Sarah Haughey

Editor, Denver off the Wagon. Sarah is a native of the "Napa Valley of beer," but her beer-drinking roots stretch all the way back to the Emerald Isle where Haughey (Haw-hee) is famous. Sure, our name may have got it's rap from the corrupt prime minister, but we like to think it stands strong due to our long-standing ability to pound a few too many pints. After stints on the East Coast and in San Francisco, Sarah came running back to Denver where her full-time job is exploring all the city's new craft breweries one sip at a time.
