Photos: Masters of the Brewniverse was rowdy fun

The Wynkoop Brewing Company presented its inaugural Masters of the Brewniverse Beer Festival and Brewery Pageant on Thursday night at the Oriental Theater. Guests got to sample lots of beer from more than fourteen breweries while watching reps and brewers from each brewery compete on stage for the crowning title of "Master of the Brewniverse."

Teams showcased the personality of their brand through various rounds of beer pageantry, and were graded on fashion, talent and interview. Westword photographer Scott Lentz was there; see all of his photos in our Masters of the Brewniverse slide show.
