Now the guys from Krewe have created their own firkin of brew at Breckenridge Brewery, and they want to let you try it -- for free. Rumor has it, it's a strawberry rhubarb agave wheat concoction, so you better get down to Krewe early, to ask the brewmaster how they came up with that.

Two-Day Civic Workout: Show Us Your Muscles at Buntport Theater (Tuesday-Wednesday, free) Warm Cookies of the Revolution is constantly putting on events to make us think and kick our civic duties into overdrive -- and this week the agenda is so intense, it's two days long.
