Over 15 local breweries will compete for the inaugural title of “Master” on Thursday during a beer pageant (yes we said pageant), […]

Embracing Winter at Parade of Darks

IMG_6478-Copy

For the life of me, I’ll never understand why people in Colorado bitch about the snow.  For one, this is Colorado and this sort of meteorological phenomenon ought to be expected; if we were living in Key West during a blizzard then I’d understand the surprise—not so startling when we’re situated at the base of […]

White Snow and Black Beer: Wynkoop’s Parade of Darks

ParadeofDarksflyer2013-featured

Fresh, flitting snow—delicately alighting upon the earth with its virginal whiteness—pairs best with the teeth-staining, belly-busting corruption of a stout, barleywine, or black IPA.  Indeed, when the seasons turn cold, when the blizzards roll in, and when the nights outweigh the days, it’s time to put away the crisp, light lagers so well-suited for the […]

Libations and Wellness: Beer for Yogis

625414_200549946775605_612491824_n

What does practicing yoga and drinking beer have in common? Lots, which is why a few local breweries have started yoga clubs. Yoga and beer have many similarities. Yoga is about finding the balance within oneself, where as when a brewer is brewing beer, they are looking for a balance in the flavors. Both can […]

If heaven was a four course dinner… Vonnegut’s evening at Wynkoop

(Photo by Shannon Berner, @shannonberner)

Poe-tee-weet, Sharoooook, Barooong! So it goes, Wynkoop knocks another beer/food pairing dinner out of the park. This time featuring a pork-centric line up to feature the rarely-brewed Vonnegut Mile High Malt beer. April 11th was abuzz with this memorial event (Vonnegut died on April 11th, 2007, so it goes) which left me satisfied, but not […]

A Festivus for the rest of us…to remember

Pouring of beer at the Denver Only Beer Festivus

Let’s be honest, Denver isn’t lacking in the celebration department when it comes to exalting craft beer. We are all too familiar with the likes of the Denver Beer Fest, Winter/Summer Brew Fest, and the incomparable Great American Beer Festival to name a few. But when it comes down to it, none have really put […]

The best compliment to bacon is […]

The Dark Side of Wynkoop

Plum Sour and Blueberry Sour; possibly the best beers at the Parade

Join the dark side.  They’ve got great beer! No, I haven’t been spending time with Darth Vader and my soul is no more corrupted than usual. In fact, my propensity for darkness helped raise $14,000 for Metro CareRing, a local food pantry, during Wynkoop Brewing Company’s Parade of Darks. Parade of Darks is Wynkoop’s annual celebration […]
