Mockery Brewing One Year Anniversary & Block Party

Mockery Brewing, 3501 Delgany St.

The only thing the folks from Mockery take seriously is beer. Join them for their one year celebration with limited barrel aged beer releases, live bluegrass, food and commemorative glassware for the first 500 people. Come down and enjoy what will probably be the last block party there is for the rest of the year!

Grist Second Anniversary Party

Grist Brewing Company, 9150 Commerce Center Cir., Ste 300, Highlands Ranch
Noon – 11 p.m., Free to Attend

It’s a big day for Grist on Saturday! The fine folks over there will be announcing the winner of their second annual home brew competition, tapping hourly brews until 8 p.m., releasing their barrel aged Russian imperial stout, giving away raffle prizes and opening access to their brew house for home brewing fans to ask their meaty and insightful questions to the head brewers! It’s going to be ridiculously awesome, so get your butts down there!

Denver Bacon and Beer Brewer’s Dinner

The Lobby, 2191 Arapahoe St.
6-9 p.m., $79.74 

Join the EatBoston and Imbibe team for an intimate evening featuring five breweries and restaurants from the Denver Bacon and Beer Festival.

Sole Mates Collaboration 5K & Brewfest

Left Hand Brewery, 1265 Boston Ave, Longmont
10 a.m., $30 for 5K

The second annual Sole Mates Collaboration 5K is co-hosted by Shoes & Brews and Left Hand Brewing. Running and beer, two of their favorite things combined into one amazing event! They believe that not many things pair as well as a run/walk with friends along the beautiful St. Vrain river followed by a party with great beer, music socializing, and awesome giveaways. The collaborative race will begin at Left Hand Brewing, run along the St. Vrain greenway paths and then make its way to end at Shoes & Brews. After the race at S&B, there will be a one-of-a-kind race expo including free beer tasting, music, giveaways and vendors.

Sunday, November 8

Pump[KY]n Release

Avery Brewing Company, 4910 Nautilus Ct. N., Boulder1
1 a.m., Free to Attend

What’s in a name? Sometimes the simplest can be the most descriptive, and in this case, derisive and divisive! After much internal debate (ad nauseum! Bourb[KY]n, anyone?), the Avery folks decided a single letter change was the best way to embody the bourbon barrel-aging that adds layers of complexity to an already exquisitely spiced pumpkin porter. Pump[KY]n comes in at 15 percent ABV and will be bottled on Nov. 7.

November Bluegrass Brunch

Station 26 Brewing Co., 7045 E. 38th Ave.
11 a.m, Free to Attend
