The fourth annual Denver Beer Festivus lured beer lovers and their ugly sweaters to Wings Over the Rockies Air & Space Museum on Saturday, featuring only breweries with a Denver address — nearly 50, in total. Guests got into the spirit of the fake holiday — originally created for an episode of Sienfeld — with plenty of good brews amid the vintage airplanes of the museum. The event was sponsored by Falling Rock Tap House and Argonaut Liquors; a portion of the proceeds were donated to New Era Colorado.
Photographer Danielle Lirette was on hand to capture the feats of strength and the holiday outfits. For more photos, see our complete slideshow.
