American-style sizzle: Bacon and Beer Festival

While the pairing of bacon and beer might not get the same billing as cheese and wine, one event raising awareness of this important combo in spite of the recent processed meat slandering World Health Organization report is the Denver Bacon and Beer Festival. Now in its fourth year, the 2015 celebration of cured pig […]

The Denver Bacon & Beer Festival

It is now a well-known fact that bacon and beer go together like grilled cheese and tomato soup, especially in Denver where pairing pork with craft brews has become a kind of artisan religion.

Denver Beer Co.’s Beer, Bacon, & Coffee Fest celebrates the breakfast beer

As many a St. Patrick’s Day and other generally unimaginative drinking t-shirts claim: “You can’t drink all day unless you start in the morning.” However true this may be, since you’ve graduated from your wild college days and have henceforth been marching steadily into adulthood and real responsibilities, killing a keg before noon in the […]

Beer, Bacon, & Coffee Fest coming to Denver Beer Co.

An event centered on beer, coffee, and unlimited bacon pretty much sells itself.  I mean, what else do you need to know before snagging your credit card and making reservations in the next five seconds?  Even if the event is being held at the bottom of the ocean, and all the profits fund the Prohibition […]

Tom’s Urban 24 Opens Today, Oct 31

Tom's Urban 24

This review is a collaborative effort of the PJ Hoberman, Ginger Pelz, and Jim Halligan powerhouse-diner-trio.   It’s 2am. You’ve left the bar willingly after that last necessary shot. And you’re hungry. Really hungry. For bacon. Bacon! And a water. So much water. And mac n’ cheese with green chili and carnitas. In my face! […]

Sweet Lady Beerventure

It all started innocently enough with a simple comment from my boss: “So apparently Alan down at Phantom Canyon made a sour mash cherry beer.”  I was intrigued, and needed this in my face. Colorado Springs really isn’t that far away and there are some other breweries down there.  One could make a nice little day […]

Weekend off the Wagon – April 20-22

Weekend off the Wagon in your inbox, every Friday What’s the booze equivalent of 4/20? Hmm.. There are specific holidays that rise above the “let’s drink because of that Saint in Ireland” or “this day has a Spanish name for the fifth of May, let’s drink!”. For example, the day prohibition was repealed (December 5th, FYI). Or, […]

Caffeine, Alcohol, And Bacon Fat. A February Miracle

By Chris Washenberger and Chris Bruns Denver Beer Company held a coffee beer fest on Saturday morning and my wife and I were lucky enough to attend. It was an excellent morning. As we pulled up to park, something seemed strange. There was tons of parking and probably about 20 people lined up outside. This […]

Denver Beer Co. to host Coffee Beer Fest

How do you like your coffee?  Black?  Cream?  Sugar? Personally, I like my coffee how I like my women: loaded with beer. Apparently, Denver Beer Co. feels the same way: they’re hosting the Coffee Beer Fest in their taproom this Saturday, February 18, 9am – noon. With a $25 ticket, attendees will receive a breakfast burrito […]

Piggy and Vino, a recap.

I’m going to be honest here.  I don’t remember much of this night.  Part of that because it was several weeks back.  The other part? There was a lot of wine.  A lot of pig, too.  But also a lot of Colorado wine.  The pictures and the food porn/orgasm menu had to be posted, too. […]
