About Ginger Pelz

Ginger is a connoisseur of nothing, but a lover of everything tasty (by her standards, of course). She is perpetually logged into Facebook and Twitter from 9-5 (for work, promise!), and by night you can generally find her on Colfax or anywhere that offers a good time. She's a sucker for a good deal, jazzy eyeglasses and boys who drink pink champagne.

Colorado Coffee Liqueur Face-off!

Coffee Liqueur

Maybe I’ve only noticed this because I have a slight obsession with anything coffee-flavored, but there seems to be quite a few Colorado distilleries creating their own coffee liqueur recently. A few that come to mind include Leopold Bros (Denver), Roundhouse (Boulder) and one that I just discovered this past weekend, Richardo’s (Lyons). Well, it […]

Top 10 Tweets from Big Beers, Belgians and Barleywines

Top10

Wow. Another epic #BigBeers in the books. The Wagon has a hard time turning down a good beer festival, and not to mention one that is located in one of the most beautiful places on earth, Vail, Colo. Even more, we got to taste bevvies that we’ve never seen before and had quality conversations with […]

Pre-GABF Beer Dinner at Watercourse Foods

Some art from the Watercourse website.

It is around this time each year when Great American Beer Festival nears closer and we beer nerds find ourselves anxiously anticipating something that we consider better than Christmas and most definitely better than each of our 21st birthdays (for a variety of reasons).  Lucky for us (and you), our favorite vegetarian restaurant in Denver, […]

Make Your Own Skinny Girl Margarita at Home

Margarita

With today being National Margarita Day, you really only have two choices: 1) Head to your local drinking hole and pay $8ish bucks a pop on a questionable margarita OR 2) Make a delicious margarita at home with ingredients you likely have on hand. (Note: there is no option for not drinking a margarita today. […]

Denver Bars with Fireplaces

Fire

We Denverites don’t let a little cold and snow keep us from enjoying our social lives. Oh no. In fact, not a snowy weekend has gone by where I haven’t been involved in a frigid bar crawl in and around Cap Hill. Just last week, friends and I bundled up and trekked, albeit cautiously, to […]

If you didn’t get your fill of great out-of-state beer during GABF, you’re in luck. Deschutes Brewery, out of Bend, Ore., is taking over Denver and Boulder for “Base Camp,” a week of special beer tastings, beer and food pairings, and appearances by Woody, the brewery’s giant beer barrel on wheels. Deschutes describes its Base Camp […]

Ignite Denver Off The Wagon – A Boozin’ Good Time

Great American Beer Festival is no stranger to beer events a’plenty, just as Denver Off The Wagon writers (and readers) are no strangers to drinking beer a’plenty. Combine the two, along with a kick-ass Denver event called Ignite Denver, and you’ve got yourself a bomber (or 5) of a good time. As part of GABF […]

City O’ City Closes for Remodel August 1

cityocity

While recovering from a late Saturday night complete with a show at Benders, a slice from Benny Blanco’s, and dancing and downing tall boys of Red Stripe at Beauty Bar (don’t ask), the boy and I found ourselves at City O’ City on a Sunday afternoon sipping on some of the city’s tastiest blood marys. […]

Review: Linger – It’s Dead On

Linger Denver

It isn’t often you get to sit in a restaurant and wonder whether the odor in the air is drying glue from a brand new bar or remnants of 40-year-old embalming fluid from the previous funeral parlor tenants. Recently opened in the historic Olinger Mortuary, and boasting Denver’s chef-of-the-moment, Justin Cucci (also of Root Down), […]
