August Beer Events
There are far too many events in any given month to post here, so for even more events, see my Facebook page!
Sat., Aug. 1, 12-8 pm: A 3rd Anniversary Celebration! at Purpose Brewing and Cellars
Join us for fantastic beer, great live-music, and delicious food in celebration of our 3rd Anniversary.

Music by The Accidentals and Belgian-Cajun menu by Little Latitudes. See you there!
Wed., Aug. 5, 11 am-10 pm: Denver Beer Co’s 5th Annual Beer & Ice Cream Pairing! at Denver Beer Co
Cheers Denver! We are finally bringing you your favorite summer time treat! Beer & Ice Cream with Little Man Ice Cream!
Our Virtual Pairing Series will have a very limited option for in house- well in patio seating! Beer and Ice Cream: fun for the whole family! On Wednesday, August 5th, we’ll reserve our entire extended patio for social distance pairing guests as well as host a guided virtual beer and ice cream pairing for those of you at home. Simply pre-order your pairing pack for pickup at our taprooms. At 5 p.m. on Wednesday, our head brewer Jason Buehler will lead a guided tasting alongside Little Man Ice Cream Chefs via our Facebook live stream.

Thur., Aug. 6, 3-9 pm: Seedstock’s First International Pilsner Association Day at Seedstock Brewery
We’re rebranding beer’s most popular social media holiday. On National IPA Day on Thurs., August 6, we are flipping the script a little and hosting our first International Pilsner Association celebration.
Each of our pilsners – the Northern Bohemian Pilsner and the flagship Czech Pilsner – will be just $4. Seedstock has also created a special t-shirt for the occasion.
Pre-order your t-shirt here: https://seedstockbrewery.com/online-store
After years of only offering a single IPA, we wanted to create a fun, light-hearted event that highlights our mantra – just because it’s “clear”, doesn’t meant it ain’t craft.
We’ll be celebrating pilsners from 3-9 p.m., and will most likely be transforming our permit-approved parking lot into a patio for the occasion.

Fri., Aug. 14-Sat., Aug. 15: Vail Craft Beer Classic 2020 at Vail Village
The Vail Craft Beer Classic presents the beer fest you’ve always dreamed of – crowdless! We’ve found the silver lining of social distancing with a no-wait beer tasting nestled in the heart of Vail Valley. You’ll get quality beers you’d expect from the Classic, poured alongside scenic views of the mountains and smells of the hops you’ve missed so much. Your favorite breweries have missed you and can’t wait to meet you in the mountains!
Safe Sips – How It Works
The safety of our guests and brewers is our top priority! To keep you safe, we’ve implemented a few rules for a safe event.
- Masks will be required in some areas of the festival when mingling and chatting with brewers.
- Collect samples from the breweries on your tray and take your beers back to your area to remove your mask and drink your samples with your group.
- Brewers will be required to wear masks and gloves, handing out single use cups for samples.
- Hand Sanitizer will be readily available all over the event.
No one under 21 will be admitted, must show a valid photo ID. The Classic urges all adults to consume alcoholic products responsibly.
Sat., Aug. 22, 2-11:59 pm: Black sky 7th Anniversary at Black Sky Brewery
We have no clue what August will bring, so stay tuned for updates.
Sat., Aug. 29, 12-10 pm: 10 Years Never Looked So Strange at Strange Craft Beer Company
This May, Strange Craft Beer Company was planning to celebrate 10 years on the corner of 13th and Zuni. The now-infamous Covid-19 Pandemic unfortunately, had different plans for 2020. After thousands of crowler and growler fills, air hugs and socially-distanced high fives, Strange Craft Beer Company is ready to celebrate not only the achievement of a decade in brewing and pouring pints, but also everything their tight-knit community has had to postpone.
On Saturday, August 29th, Strange Craft will host three seatings at 12, 3 and 6pm. Tickets are sold by table only and will include, per person, two 16 oz beers, lunch or dinner provided by Barrett and Pratt Provisions, and a cupcake from Valhalla Cakes that is paired with a birthday shot of Dr. Strangelove Barleywine. Additional beers also available for purchase.
“We had this whole year planned out for our 10th: multiple events, a bunch of collabs with all of our industry friends, new beers and revisits of old favorites,” says Founder and Head Brewer Tim Myers. “Then Covid slammed the brakes on all of it. This celebration is for everyone that missed their birthdays (including us) because of the pandemic. Tyler, Erin and I have worked hard to create a Covid-safe event that should allow all of us to gather safely and celebrate our birthdays together. So put a table together and come celebrate your birthday and ours! Cheers!”
“Over the last few weeks I have been joking about how Strange opened during a Recession and now is celebrating 10 years during a pandemic,” adds Bar Manager Tyler Schilz. “That little joke has really made me think about all the wonderful strangers that are now friends and family. On the 29th, I am excited to host a party to thank everyone for the last decade while also celebrating many more years to come at Strange”
Tickets are on sale Thursday, August 6th at https://10yearsneverlookedsostrange.eventbrite.com for tables of 2,4,6 and 8 at three different time slots. We are booking by tables as part of our Covid-safe efforts.
