Yes, the Great American Beer Festival starts tonight, and although tickets sold out long ago, there are plenty of other beery events around town. Tonight's Barleywine Fest, for example. Don't be fooled by the name: Barleywine is actually a sweet and very strong type of ale originating in England in the nineteenth century. There are several varieties, ranging from little to no hops -- but all are very high in alcohol content. See also: The ultimate calendar to the Great American Beer Festival
Enjoy an unlimited tasting of twelve American and English barleywines at the Renegade Publik House from 6 to 9:30 p.m. tonight. Some of the featured barleywines include Avery Hog Heaven, Mad River John Barleycorn and Great Divide Old Ruffian. (See the full list on the Renegade website.)
Tickets are $30 and include a full-size souvenir glass, as well as various hors d'oeuvres from the Renegade kitchen. Purchase tickets online at imbibedenver.com.
