Denver Bacon and Beer Fest Recap

Did you hear the one about the couple who went to the 2014 Denver Bacon and Beer Festival, and wound up in a food coma that lasted a week? It left them unable to think about, much less write about, anything having to do with food or beer. No punchline here, but we’ll throw you a few puns: We would have written but we weren’t bacon any sense. All the delicious food and beer was bacon […]

Ska Brewing Company’s 19th Anniversary Recap

This past Saturday Ska Brewing Company celebrated another year of being bad-ass with their 19th Anniversary Party and Brewers Invitational at their headquarters in Durango, Colorado. We love this excuse for a road trip every summer, and this party seemed like the perfect reason to hit the road. Here’s a recap of this year’s shindig, or at least what we can remember of it…

Best Summer Camp Ever: Beer Camp Across America Comes to Denver

Sierra Nevada brought their Beer Camp Across America tour to Denver last Friday, and we were fortunate enough to attend.  Within an hour we’d already deemed this our favorite beer festival ever for a bunch of reasons, and that wasn’t just the beer talking.  There’s a lot that other festivals could learn from Beer Camp Across America.  Here are just a few things that made us fall in love with this awesome, traveling Beer Camp.

Review of Slue Foot Sue’s Shindig

We went to the Slue Foot Sue’s Shindig last night, and what a barn-burner it was!  Let’s not even pretend this is a review and call it what it is: proof that whenever Imbibe throws a party y’all need to go!  Imbibe throws parties that will knock your socks off.  In fact if you aren’t wearing any socks they will actually place socks on you just so they can knock them bitches off.  Okay perhaps […]

It’s Finally Here! GABF & Denver Beer Fest Week

It’s that time of year again: The Great American Beer Festival. This year the BMT crew didn’t buy tickets to attend, but we will be volunteering on the Brew Crew pouring beer all three days. We don’t find out until tonight what brewery we’ll be assigned to, but we aren’t worried. In our four previous years pouring for GABF we’ve never had a bad assignment or a lousy time. It’s the most fun you can […]

Malty, Hoppy-Scented Memories of the Fests That Were

It seems like just yesterday we just updated our blog with a flurry of posts, only to fall behind once again.  It’s really not our fault.  It’s summertime, and while the livin’ is easy, the blogging is sort of a pain in the ass.  When the weather is warm and the drinks are cold, it’s easy to lose focus.   It’s difficult to sit in front of the computer when the sunshine and warm breezes […]

A Tale of Two Beer Festivals

There is no lack of beer festivals in Colorado during the summer, that’s a fact. It a downright beerapalooza all summer long! There are beer festivals galore – big and small, indoor and outdoor, for profit and for a purpose. In seven days we managed to hit two separate beer festivals: the Breckenridge Summer Beer Festival in on Saturday, July 13, and the Hops for Habitat Brewfest on Friday, July 19. How did they stack […]
