Booty -- both kinds -- at BrethrenCon, Denver's first-ever pirate convention, over the weekend

Did booty mean something different to pirates than it does today? Attendees at BrethrenCon, touted as Denver's first-ever pirate convention, pondered that question, as seen in our BrethrenCon photo gallery. It's on view, along with shots of incredible beer nerds at the Great American Beer Festival and American classics from Mountain Sun, on our picturesque slideshow page.
