Good beer, good cause: Top craft brewers pour their best brews tonight at the Wynkoop to fight prostate cancer

The Great American Beer Festival officially kicked off at 5:30 p.m. last night, but between the hours of now and 5:30 p.m. today, there's a lapse in the suds, which is the perfect time to head over to the Wynkoop Brewery, 1634 18th Street, for a rare and exotic beer tasting, all to benefit the Pints for Prostates campaign.

The tasting, which runs from 1 to 4 p.m., is $55 per person in advance, or $65 at the door and includes unlimited beer samples from more than 20 of America's top craft brewers, plus appetizers and a commemorative tasting glass. "We wanted to create a unique event that would give beer fans a one-of-a-kind experience where they can sample some of America's best beers and get the chance to meet some of the biggest names on the beer industry," says Daniel Bradford, publisher of All About Beer magazine and a host of today's tasting event.

Tickets can be purchased at and at the Wynkoop. For more info, call 303-297-2700.
