Denver Beer Fest: Today's top picks include the Cheeky Monk, beer burlesque

Have you hit any Denver Beer Week events yet? No? Well, you're in luck, because things just get busier and busier from here on out.

Tonight at 8 p.m., check out the Cheeky Monk's third-anniversary party, which features a special beer, 3 Cheeks to the Wind, made by Avery Brewing just for the Monk.

Opened in 2007, the Belgian beer bar has recently taken an interest in Belgian-style American craft beers, and in a big way. Find out more here.

Also on tap tonight is Beer, Brats and Burlesque, which kicks off its clothes at 7 p.m. at Lannie's Clocktower Cabaret, 1601 Arapahoe Street. For $25, Avery Brewing will pour beer in between dancing by the Clocktower Clockettes.

The Bull & Bush get into the act as well, tapping a new rare or unusual brew each day this week. Today, it's Marriage Golden 2008 Vintage and Marriage Golden 2009 Vintage. Check their website for the whole schedule.

And if you're in the mood for a movie, Big Game Restaurant will be showing Caddyshack on its thirty-foot HDTV screen tonight at 10 p.m. Click here for details on Big Game's entire week of beer-soaked flicks.
