Forget decking the halls, forget the tinsel, lights and trees, forget the candles, the dreidels, the awkward office parties, the stockings, hell even the presents. The most festive part of the month of December involves the airing of grievances, feats of strength, a metal pole, nearly 50 Denver breweries, and a dance party so aggressive, that you’ll need to start stretching 5 days in advance.

Need a refresher course on how to properly celebrate Festivus?

Thats right folks, Denver Festivus returns this Sunday. This year’s event features nearly 50 Denver breweries serving as the premiere showcase of Denver’s booming beer culture. According to data provided by the Brewers Association 2015 has already yielded approximately 14 new brewery openings in the Greater Denver area with several more in planning.

Additionally the 2015 Denver Festivus will include the addition of Rare Beer Row, which features a host of rare, and small format beers. Upon arrival to Festivus, each attendee will receive one specially marked, time stamped ticket that is only valid in Rare Beer Row once, at a set time. There will be visible signage at the Rare Beer entrance (a chalkboard), and a volunteer stationed there, who will collect tickets and let people enter based those pre-determined shifts of time. Attendees will only get one tickets and once they’ve visited Rare Beer Row they won’t be allowed to re-enter.
