Festivus is back! May your beeriest dreams come true.

During this magical week of GABF, it’s also time to look into the future. Into our dreams. And into December, for the third annual Denver Beer Festivus, presented by Imbibe and Denver off the Wagon. Tickets go on sale tomorrow morning (October 2) at 10am, and tend to sell out, so get ready.

Festivus is December 13, 2014, from 3 – 6:30pm at the McNichols Building (144 W. Colfax). Each year, every brewery with a Denver address is invited. The first year, 19 breweries poured as a dance party raged on. Last year, 25 breweries gave you samples as you danced around the Festivus pole. This year, 36 breweries have already signed up, with the potential for more as the event nears.

Breweries new and old are present at Festivus. From some of the anchors of Denver, such as Great Divide, Breckenridge, and Wynkoop, to some breweries that haven’t even opened yet, like Mockery, Cerebral, and Declaration, you can enjoy all of Denver’s beer under one roof.

Tickets are $40 for general admission, which provides you with samples of all the beer while available – within reason, of course – and a souvenir tasting glass. Feat of Strength tickets are available for $65, and come with all the general admission offerings as well as 30 minutes earlier entry to sample, a food ticket, t-shirt, and specialized souvenir tasting glass.
