Can’t-Miss Colorado Events During GABF

September 28, 2017 | Avg. Reading Time: 7 min

For one week a year, Denver and the surrounding metro turn upside down for the Great American Beer Festival. While the festival floor is a great place to sample hundreds of beers from all over the globe, the city really lights up with so many other opportunities to support craft beer. There are a lot. Like hundreds. Events popping up at your local restaurant, at your local brewery, at your local craft beer bar. Separate festivals all together have broken off of GABF. So, to help provide some perspective and frothy guidance, we have made that navigation a bit easier with our calendar of events. Make sure you check that out here. Too much to sort through and choose? Don’t worry, chuggernaut, we got you covered.

Event Recap | Rocky Mountain Cigar Festival 2017

August 30, 2017 | Avg. Reading Time: 3 min

We came. We roasted. We toasted.

But we did it. We puffed and chugged our way through our fourth Rocky Mountain Cigar Festival on Saturday, August 26th, after enjoying a day in the sun to sip suds and puff clouds of grey smoke. As the festival ‘wrapped’ up, we reminisced about our favorite pour, favorite puff and the many take-aways a festival like this can present. As we ventured out to document the festivities and to bring back some new recommendations for you to try, with our lungs charred and our palates shot, we come back with hope you take a few moments to check out these great photos showcasing the event and hope to see you there next year!
