One of the cooler and more unique events during Great American Beer Festival is back and closer to downtown than ever before. Renegade and Sexpot Comedy are teaming up again for the Offensively Delicious Craft Beer Comedy Show at McNichols Building in Civic Center Park. As an unofficial kickoff to GABF, which starts on Thursday, Offensively Delicious offers a miniature beer festival with brews from 10 great breweries and the comedic stylings of some hilarious local and national comedians.
Starting at 6:00pm, those attending Offensively Delicious can get unlimited samples of 20+ beers from 10 breweries. This year, the representing Colorado breweries are Renegade, Alpine Dog, Fort Collins, Great Divide, and Liquid Mechanics. The other breweries from across the country are New Holland, Lakefront, Shmaltz, and Brooklyn.
The comedy portion of the night, hosted again by Andy Juett, starts at 8pm with a quick round of Uncalled Four, which combines the raunchiness of Cards Against Humanity with the unfiltered creativity of comedians. Following that, a representative from each brewery showing their comedy chops with a 2-3 minute set. This has been an incredible feature of the event for the last 2 years and the brewery reps have not disappointed.

CCADV is a great advocate that does incredible work and we are happy to work with them.”
