Wherever you find yourself roaming around on Black Friday, just remember to be safe out there on those Denver streets. People be cray and they are out looking for deals and they are not looking for you carrying around your expensive new bottles for the cellar. Sometimes the best deals aren’t the ones you have to search high and low for.

We suggest going to Station 26, Parry’s Pizza for a crazy tap list and checking out the new brewery that just opened.
