American Craft Beer Week in Denver

10 May

A fellow craft beer blogger, PJ Hoberman of the “Off the Wagon,” did my job for me this week. He’s rockin’ it with the most comprehensive American Craft Beer Week list of events happening here in Denver and also our sister cities, Boulder and Fort Collins. Check out his list by visiting denveroffthewagon.com.

I’m hoping to grab a taste of the Funky Cougar – a first-time-ever  tap at the Bull & Bush. It’s a sour beer aged in a Folk Machine wine barrel.  (4700 Cherry Creek South, Denver)

If you haven’t gone yet, stop by Strange Brewing Co. for a flight. Throughout the week Drew from Hops & Pie (a proud supporter of this blog and Ladies of Craft Beer) will be grilling pizza on site. (1330 Zuni, Unit M, Denver)

It also just so happens that we’re throwing a lil’ birthday gathering/moving to the Midwest party on one of the last days of ACBW at one of Denver’s coveted beer bars: Falling Rock Tap House. Ne’er a Coors Light tap can be seen–with more than 60 taps from amazing craft brewers nationwide. Check it out and support your local brewery May 16-22.
