Passport Closing Party, Opening the Book on BrewHa!Ha! Today
The Denver Public Library has teamed up with two local breweries, Fiction Beer and Denver Beer Co, and author Kevin Hearne to make two beers that will be tapped as part of a month-long DPL series called BrewHa!Ha!, which "celebrates all things brewed," from coffee to kombucha. Hearne, author of the Iron Druid Chronicles, provided "the initial style inspiration for this project drawing on the habits of his main character in his novels," the library says. Both breweries will make cream ales. Fiction's will be spiced with caraway seed (a nod to the origins of Hearne's main character, the Irish Atticus O’Sullivan), as well as pears. Denver Beer Co will make a kettle-soured cream ale with yogurt and black currants. Denver Beer Co will tap its beer today at 3 p.m. Remember to bring your library card for $1 off your pour, and ask for Sour 641.23. There will also be “Kombucha With the City Librarian” from 4:30 to 6 p.m. today at Happy Leaf Kombucha.
