PorchDrinking’s Weekly Denver Beer Beat | September 13, 2017
The Denver Beer Beat sheds light on news of brewery openings, special tappings, firkins and one-off batches, bottle releases, dinners, pairings, etc.
It’s me, Cory Pellicle, on top of all things beer (see what I did there?) for this week here in the Denver area. I’m filling in for Jeremy while he is out on vacay. He is probably skulling coldies right now and hiking hills and doing all kinds of other ill shit. Well deserved, Jeremy, well deserved.
But don’t worry! Jeremy will be back next week and we will be continuing to flesh out the 2017 GABF calendar. We just put up a shipload of events. Go peep ’em out, beer nerds. And keep coming back for more GABF coverage on the site!

Beer Dinners/Brunch – If you are headed to Palisade for Wine Week and you have tickets to Black Project’s beer dinner, then you already know what you are in for. You lucky bastard(s). If you are still in the metro area, head up to Loveland to hang with Grimm Brothers as they are getting barbaric AF with their first every Barbarian Dinner but do remember it’s a BYOK “Bring Your Own Knife” function. Srsly, you can only eat with a knife. How doperide is that? Skål!!!!! The Walnut Room is also hosting Victory Brewing on Tuesday night for some hops and nosh. Get it!
