Crash Course

With 200 craft breweries in Colorado, it’s no surprise that out-of-state outfits want to cash in on this state’s thriving beer culture. Tonight in City Park, the Boston Beer Company will host the Samuel Adams Brew & View, where audiences can play lawn games, graze food-truck offerings and sample beers, including Boston Lager, Rebel IPA and Summer Ale, while watching Wedding Crashers. “It’s just a really fun, casual atmosphere and a great place to drink beer and watch a movie,” says Boston Beer’s Michelle Diamandis.

And you don’t have to crash this party: Admission is free, but you’ll want to secure tickets at

It all starts at 6 p.m.; take your blankets and lawn chairs to the southeast quadrant of City Park. The movie will begin when the sun goes down, and Uber cars will be available in case you sample too much beer. For more information, go to
