Get lit at a craft beer neon sign art show

Though it's your fault alone, you can blame Louisville's Zeon Corporation, if you want, for your drinking problem. They're the ones who make those mesmerizing neon beer signs that draw you in to bars and watering holes like flowers draw honeybees.

In fact, the company, which has been around since 1980, has a client list that reads like the tap list from a beer-lover's dream: New Belgium, Oskar Blues, Left Hand, Alaskan, Deschutes, Odell, Dogfish Head, Wynkoop Brewing, Flying Dog and many more.

Starting today, you can see about 25 examples of Zeon's handiwork on display in a giant windowfront at the Denver Pavilions as part of Denver Beer Fest. The Craft Beer Sign Art show will be on display there, next to NikeTown, through September 19, at least.

Just try to walk away not feeling thirsty.
