It’s almost my favorite time of year again: GABF week! The Great American Beer Festival is something to get very excited about. But even for those not attending the festival, there are endless other great beer events going on before, during and after it. Over the past couple of weeks I’ve been reading about dozens of upcoming tappings, dinners, and more, and there are too many to keep track of. However, there are several that stood out to me, and I would like to pass along my picks to you.
I decided to keep it to Denver-based events only, though there are plenty of other happenings in Boulder, Ft. Collins, and other surrounding areas.
My top picks:
9/29 Annual GABF Tapping Party at Falling Rock
9/30 Beerfest at Paramount Cafe
10/2 Trve Brewing’s GABF Kickoff Show at Summit Music Hall
10/3 Beers Made by Walking Festival
10/3 What the Funk!? CBC Denver 2014 (sold out)
Freshcraft has a bunch of special tappings:
- 9/29 Breckenridge Brewery
- 9/30 New Belgium
- 10/1 Upslope
- 10/2 Elevation, Cigar City, Ska
- 10/3 Stone, Green Flash, Odell, Boulevard
- 10/4 Surly, Firestone Walker
Again, there are numerous other beer events that will be going on in the area the week of September 28th-October 5th. These are just the ones that are particularly interesting to me. I hope you all get out there and enjoy some of these wonderful events!
