You've already heard about beer for breakfast, beer burlesque and beer improv.

Here are ten more top options during the second annual Denver Beer Fest, which takes place September 10-19 in conjunction with the Great American Beer Festival.


10) Beer Floats Yes, they're insanely delicious. Four you should try: the Vanilla Porter float at Breckenridge Brewery, 471 Kalamath Street; the Yeti Imperial float at FreshCraft, 1530 Blake Street; the Malted Stout Ice Cream Float available all week at Elway's inside the Ritz-Carlton downtown, 1881 Curtis Street; and the Cherry Bomb Stout Float, available only during the Steuben's Strange Brewing Brunch on September 12.
