Wynkoop Brewing’s Day of Darks Festival Pour List

Wynkoop Brewing’s Day of Darks Festival Pour List

As much as we may try to deny it, and as much as recent Colorado weather may contradict, cooler days are creeping on the horizon. One sure sign of this changing of the guard can be seen through the corresponding shift from fresh hop and pumpkin beers to the dark and roasty stouts and porters that’ll inevitably be dominating liquor store shelves for the next three to four months.

For those who have come to welcome the liquid equivalent of flannel sheets, dark beers ranging from Black IPAs to Dark Lagers, Bourbon Barrel-Aged Stouts, to adjunct Porters will all be on full display this Saturday at Wynkoop Brewing’s Day of Darks Festival. The yearly celebration of opaque beers will once again treat attendees to unlimited tasters of over 30 Colorado breweries and a handful of national brands as well.

Proceeds from the now sold out event will benefit local health organizations Movember Foundation, Colorado Cancer Research Program and Drink for Pink doing good in the Mile High City.
