The Gang’s All Beer
Throw on a fancy suit and fedora or a beaded flapper dress and get ready to taste some legal booze at the first annual Prohibition Party & Brew Fest. Today’s Roaring ’20s-themed soiree is more than a celebration of the eightieth anniversary of the end of the booze ban; it’s also a chance to sample some of Colorado’s finest beer. Set inside the beautiful Oriental Theater at 4335 West 44th Avenue, the gathering will allow brew experts and novices alike to taste 150 craft beers from more than 25 local breweries while enjoying live swing and big-band music.
Put on by Denver Gourmet Eats, a local company specializing in walking tours around Denver’s foodie neighborhoods, the event gives craft brewers a chance to connect with a new crowd. “I think people have an adventurous spirit in Colorado, and we have a lot of innovation when it comes to food and beer,” says Chelly Vitry, owner of Denver Gourmet Eats.
There will be two three-hour tasting sessions; guests can sign up for slots at noon or 4 p.m. Baker St. Pretzels will offer snacks in-side, and Brava! Pizza, Capt’n Crabby, Route 40 Argentinean Grill and Crock Spot food trucks will be selling sweet and savory delights curbside. Tickets for the tasting are $40; designated drivers get in for $10.

Sun., April 7, 12-3 & 4-7 p.m., 2013
