Countdown to GABF 2017: The Dates You Need To Know

This past Tuesday, June 20th was the Summer Solstice, aka the longest day of the year. We love that summer is finally in full-gear, but it’s also a bit sad that we’ve already passed the halfway mark. From here on out days will slowly get shorter until, before you know it, summer turns into autumn. Before you think we’re being all Debbie-Downer about summer ending, we’re not. We know there are plenty of warm, sunny […]

Collaboration Fest 2017: The Biggest and Best Yet

Last Saturday we attended the 4th Annual Collaboration Fest at the National Western Complex in Denver. As promised, this year’s Collaboration Fest was bigger and better than previous years. The expanded space allowed for more brewers, more beer, and more thirsty beer drinkers. It was just generally more fun! There was so many great beers to be enjoyed, that we couldn’t even get to them all. There were over 100 beers and despite our best efforts, we just couldn’t […]

Event Preview: Denver Winter Brew Fest

We used to write about how the summer months in Colorado were Beer Festival Season. When the weather is sunny and warm, the number of beer festivals are staggering.

2016 Sesh Fest Preview

There is nothing like beer in the summertime. Don’t get me wrong – we like beer all year round – but there is just something about enjoying a delicious, cold beer on a hot, sunny day. The only problem is that those beers can go down mighty easy when it’s hot out, and we don’t bounce back as quickly from a hangover as we did in the past. That’s why summer is the perfect season to enjoy some […]
