Fun’d Fest

Stoney’s Bar and Grill, 1111 Lincoln St.

Did GABF wear out your beer taste-buds? Deep Eddy Vodka presents Fun’d Fest for The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation  – all proceeds will go directly to CFF. Indulge in an evening of live music, comedy and fundraising as mixologists concoct fresh libations with the help of 10x column distilled Deep Eddy Vodka from 7 p.m. to midnight. Also, if the urge to donate strikes, there will be a silent auction to benefit The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.

Bourbon 101

Join Berkeley Untapped and Garrison Brothers Distillery for an exclusive preview of Garrison Brothers Fall 2014 Straight Bourbon Whiskey. For $20, enjoy samples of the Fall 2013, Spring 2014 and new Fall 2014 vintage Bourbons. Charlie Garrison will be present to discuss the three Bourbons, the history of whiskey in America, the proper way to sample Bourbon, and how Garrison Brothers is making its whiskies. There are no reservations necessary and this event is open to the public.

Refreshment for a Cause

Parry’s Pizza, all Colorado locations (Highlands Ranch, Greenwood Village and Castle Rock)

All day, all Parry’s Pizza locations will be holding “Refreshment for a Cause” to benefit St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. For every pint Parry’s sells of Landon’s Wanna Walk Wheat, they’ll be donating 25 cents back to St. Jude. Some of your favorite breweries have also pitched in to make this an even sweeter deal by donating kegs for this party – all sales from these kegs will also be donated to St. Jude. Expect to see Avery Brewing, Odell Brewing, New Belgium Brewing, Paradox, Uinta, Blue Spruce, Twisted Pine, Renegade Brewing, Breckenridge Brewing and Grist Brewing brews for this charitable cause.
