COVID has derailed everyone’s way of life. In addition to your personal plans being put on hold, small and large brewers alike have been forced to make tough decisions to adapt to the current climate. While most live entertainment and nightlife is far from being back to normal, some breweries are taking creative approaches to attract drinkers to their taprooms like hosting stand up comedy to coincide with their craft beer. Let’s be real, a good laugh and a beer might be more important now than ever.
When: Wednesday, October 5, 6-10 p.m.
Where: McNichols Building (Denver, CO)
One of the cooler and more unique events during Great American Beer Festival is back and closer to downtown than ever before. Renegade and Sexpot Comedy are teaming up again for the Offensively Delicious Craft Beer Comedy Show at McNichols Building in Civic Center Park. As an unofficial kickoff to GABF, which starts on Thursday, Offensively Delicious offers a miniature beer festival with brews from 10 great breweries and the comedic stylings of some hilarious local and national comedians.
In my opinion, Kyle Kinane is one of the best comedians currently on the circuit. He brought his own style to comedy, combining his enticing storytelling with an incredibly unique view on the world. Even if you don’t think you know who Kyle is, you probably do. Kyle is a nationally touring comedian with multiple specials including Whiskey Icarus. He’s been on Drunk History and won the internet on @midnight more than a handful of times. Also he is the gravelly voice of all the promos you hear on Comedy Central.
Coming up on Wednesday night, Kyle will also be the headliner at Offensively Delicious, a craft beer comedy show that kicks off a weekend full of Great American Beer Festival events (check out our preview here). Kyle gave me a few minutes to talk about his rise in the comedy world, his drinking preferences, and also his exciting upcoming projects.
The DC Improv Comedy Club decided it would bring DC Brau into its bar taps to happily fuel the crews and attendees of its late-night shows and support the local brew. Being creative souls, The DC Improv team wanted to have some fun with this effort.

The Hopped Up Hilarity event on Sept. 16 will not only debut pints of DC Brau (starting with The Corruption, an IPA with a 6.5% ABV), but will also feature drinking stories. Funny drinking stories. From amateurs.
Cincinnati Brew Ha-Ha is a treat for anyone who loves craft beer, laughing, and friends. If you hate fun, it’s probably not for you. I look forward to this event every year perhaps more so than even—and I am hesitant to admit this— Cincinnati Beer Fest.
50 Comedians, 100 Beers, One Million Laughs
For six years now, Sawyer Point has turned into a beer haven for two days over the summer. It’s an event that pulls from all demographics and introduces people to new things, something that always gets me excited. With 100 beers to choose from and 35 breweries represented, chances are there are a few brews that weren’t on your radar before.
