“We kept asking about that piece and eventually decided to build our whole event around it, and around the fun side of art,” says Casey Berry of Imbibe Denver, which has organized Slue Foot Sue’s Shindig in conjunction with the City of Denver. Created as a way to showcase The New West: Contemporary Perspectives of the Rocky Mountain Region, an exhibit on display inside the McNichols Building in Civic Center Park, the Shindig is also a mini-beer festival and Rockmount Ranch Wear trunk show.
Participating breweries include City Star, Backcountry, Great Divide, Station 26 and Jagged Mountain. There will also be barbecue from Moe’s, live country music from Casey James Prestwood and the Burning Angels, and the opportunity to buy shirts, accessories and posters from Rockmount. The party runs from 6 to 10 p.m. at the McNichols Building, 144 West Colfax Avenue; tickets, $10, include three tokens each good for a twelve-ounce beer, and are available at imbibedenver.com/sue.
