I love beer. Ales, stouts, pilsners, lambics I love them all. In the summer heat, my love affair with beer evolves into something like a full-blown obsession. Lucky for me, I live in Colorado, where a great many folks share that obsession, so I get to go to lots of events like the Summer Brew Fest, happening today in the main parking lot of Coors Field, 2001 Blake Street. From 4 to 7 p.m., the lot will become a beer-lovers dream, with more than seventy varieties of beer, all of them top-notch offerings from smaller craft brewers and microbreweries. We feel that Denver needs more of a microbrew event that focuses on craft brews, explains Bill Laughlin, event manager for the fest. We want people to come out, enjoy Denvers beautiful weather, sample these beers, listen to live music and visit some of our vendors.
The music comes courtesy of Angie Stevens and the Beautiful Wreck. And if music, beer and sunshine arent enough of a draw, consider that its a benefit for the Colorado Environmental Coalition: Youll be drinking for a good cause. Tickets are $25 in advance, $35 at the door. Visit www.denverbrewfest.com for tickets and more info.
