Sat., Jun. 3, 1-5 pm: Awaken the Intellect Tapping at Fiction Beer Company (7101 E Colfax Ave, Denver)

‘Awaken the Intellect’ is a Cream Ale fermented with coffee whose beans were bourbon barrel aged, then roasted and cold brewed just for Fiction Beer by Copper Door Coffee Roasters.
The beans: A small, medium density Colombian bean.
The barrel: Bourbon.
The process: Green coffee beans were aged in our bourbon barrel for 3 weeks. The green coffee beans were then roasted and brewed into a cold brew concentrate by Copper Door Coffee Roasters. The cold brew was then added to the fermenter.
The result: A unique Cream Ale. The coffee has added aromas of oak, vanilla, dark fruit, cedar and coconut.
A subtle aroma of bourbon; similar to a freshly finished glass of bourbon. These aromas and flavors meld with the light crisp character of the Cream Ale to make a surprisingly unique and fresh take on a classic style.
Copper Door will be onsight for the release with samples of the coffee used in this brew, talking about coffee roasting and the processes used to make these beans.
More details coming soon.

The Post

24 American classics from Stephen Tebo’s private collection plus Post Brewing Co. beer, BBQ off the grill, and fried chicken
The Post Chicken & Beer is hosting an American Classics Car Show & Auction on Saturday, June 17 from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. 24 classic American cars from the 1950’s, 60’s, and 70’s from Stephen Tebo’s private collection will be on display in The Post’s parking lot, and several of them will be up for auction.
Entry to the car show will be free to the public and food and drinks will be sold a la carte. Specials will include $12 fried or BBQ chicken plates and $4 chicken biscuits. The restaurant will also be open and serving the regular Post menu in addition to drink specials (such as $2 canned Post Brewing Co. beers) and the BBQ and fried chicken plates being served in the parking lot.
Mr. Tebo, founder and owner of Tebo Properties in Boulder, started building his collection in the year 2000. Currently it consists of nearly 400 classics from around the world—including famous cars like the Batmobile, the taxi from Seinfeld, John Lennon’s white Rolls Royce, and John F. Kennedy’s hearse. While the private collection is not open to the public, Mr. Tebo does allow local non-profits access it for fundraisers throughout the year.
Of the 24 American Classics featured in the Car Show, several will be auctioned off Dutch-style. An initial asking price will gradually be lowered until a bid is made, or until it reaches a predetermined reserve price. Dutch auctions are typically faster-paced than other styles, since only one bid is required to sell an item.

Fri., Jun. 30, 7:30-10:30 pm: The McNichols Project #2: Wild West Project at The McNichols Building (144 W. Colfax Avenue, Denver)

An era of lawless westward expansion. The West was largely unexplored and full of rebellious characters and high stakes. Gold and land were up for grabs, and the saloon provided a social hub in the many booming towns popping up across the plains. For the second event in the series, The McNichols Project explores the culture of Wild West via frontier-esque drinks, food, music, and decor. 
The Art: 

Diverse Voices of the Modern West | 3rd Floor

In this exhibition, Denver artist Rochelle Johnson has brought together a group of Colorado artists representing gender, ethnic, race, and cultural diversity.  Historically left out of the mainstream art scene, the artists in this exhibit show what true inclusion can look like. Artists included in the exhibition are Sean Gray, Dawn Williams Boyd, Kaz Umezono, Jenna Almond Williams, Josh Armijo, Yee Tseng, Deborah Jang, Joel Cook, Allister Bane, Sylvia Montero, Tony Ortega, Ron Hicks, Michael Gadlin, Karen Divine, James Dixon, Ella Maria Ray, and Andrea T. Kemp.

Diversity in the Wild West: Buffalo Bill posters | 2nd floor

2017 marks the 100-year anniversary of William F. “Buffalo Bill” Cody’s death in Denver. In honor of this centenary, Denver Arts & Venues highlights the diversity in his grandiose Wild West shows by borrowing from the poster collection of the Buffalo Bill Museum and Grave in Golden. Through his show Buffalo Bill, rightly or wrongly, has made an indelible imprint upon American history and culture. Buffalo Bill’s Wild West shows were based upon Cody’s own experiences as a white man growing up in the American West, and people saw “Indians” from his perspective. He advocated for equal rights, and ensured that American Indians and women were treated fairly and received the same pay as all other performers. The show eventually became one of the most popular traveling shows in the world, employing performers from every continent (except Antarctica). 
Tickets are $30 per person. Guests receive a choice of western inspired cocktails or craft beers, along with live music, and art. Complimentary snacks will be available along with additional food for purchase from some of Denver’s favorite food trucks. 
Stay tuned for the brewery and distillery lineup.

Sat., Jul. 8, 2-6 pm: Great Divide’s 2017 Block Party at The Square on 21st (2062 Larimer Street, Denver)

Great Divide is getting back to its roots with a summer block party at the Square on 21st Street, a newly created urban green space on 21st Street between Larimer & Lawrence streets. The event will be a relaxed affair with music, lawn games and plenty of delicious beer in a unique outdoor venue. Think of it as a sort of “not an Anniversary-party party”. Wait, that didn’t help, did it?
Because we know there is a lot going on in this great city of ours, we’ve taken the stress out of committing to a day-long event by offering different tiers of participation. The capacity at this venue is limited so if you’re committed to your relationship with Great Divide, we encourage you to get your tickets in advance.
Here’s the breakdown:
Tier 1: Put A Ring On It – $40
For our Yeti Mafia-worthy fans who have no problem committing to a great time, $40 will get you unlimited 4 oz. pours of rare, specialty and core beers along with a commemorative glass, Great Divide limited edition Hop Disciples pin and VIP status for fast-tracked beer service. You will also have access to exclusive, limited beer tastings not available to other attendees.
Tier 2: Going Steady – $10
Not ready to pop the question? Since space at The Square is limited, this $10 ticket ensures that we will save room for you to join us, and it gets you a free Denver Pale Ale upon entrance, just to remind you what a good thing you’ve got.
Tier 3: Don’t Tie Me Down – $5 at the door
For those simply looking for a casual hang, $5 will get you in the door along with one free Denver Pale Ale. Please note there is no guarantee of entry day-of. Giving you the option to keep it casual means we don’t know how many people to expect to show up. If you can’t commit to us we can’t commit to you. You understand, right? If you want to reserve your space at the party, just wear our varsity jacket already and get that “Going Steady” ticket. Don’t make us play hard to get.
Once inside, beer tokens will be available for purchase, unless you committed to the $40 unlimited tasting experience ticket. Beer list coming soon…
Great Divide is teaming with Ballpark Neighborhood Association and Levitt Pavilion Denver to make this event happen and proceeds will go to benefit Levitt Pavilion Denver. This event is 21+.

Live music from 7 bands, 3 food trucks, beer tents, 3 collab beer releases, rare beer releases, kids zone, fun, and more!
Don’t miss the biggest party Edgewater has ever seen! We are once again shutting down 25th Ave in front of the brewery, and this year is will be closed almost to Benton. We’ll have more space than ever to spread out and load up the fun.
Instead of one anniversary beer, we brewed THREE different anniversary collabs with Elk Mountain Brewing, Little Machine Beer and Hogshead Brewery. If you buy a pint of each of the collaboration beers, you’ll receive a special edition commemorative glass! We’ll also have a rare beer tent with some aged specialties, including 5 different versions of our Tour Time Barleywine. Full beer lineup to be announced the week of the party.
The stage will be in the parking lot across the street from the brewery this year, so you’ll be able to sit at our garage doors and get a perfect view of the action.

12 – 1 PM: Johnny Tarr
1:30 – 2:30: Full Of Mirrors
