Pour List | 2018 Denver Festivus Brings Out the Best Holiday Beers

Pour List | 2018 Denver Festivus Brings Out the Best Holiday Beers

In a holiday season littered with White Elephants, tinsel and ugly sweaters, I think it’s safe to say what we really care about is cutting straight to the booze and debauchery. Denver Beer Festivus, which returns Saturday afternoon from 3-6pm with a VIP hour at 2pm, cuts to the chase with 60 Denver-based breweries in attendance. This year’s event taking place at the former Sports Authority Sports Castle at 1000 Broadway, will also feature a silent disco floor from SoundDown, part luchador-style wrestling and comedy from Lucha Libre and Laughs, a holiday market, food vendors, and plenty more surprises.

General Admission tickets and Feats of Strength VIP tickets are currently still available. This VIP treatment gets you early admission to the fest, a free food ticket, and a commemorative glass. The folks at Two Parts who put on Denver Beer Festivus were kind enough to provide us with a pair of Feats of Strength tickets to give away.

For your chance to win just email “A Festivus for the Rest of Us” along with your First and Last Name to [email protected]

By email you will also subscribe to PorchDrinking’s monthly newsletter that will also include some sort of boozy themed giveaway each month!
