The first rule of Beer Fight Club is "definitely talk about Beer Fight Club" — at least if you want the brewery throwdown to return for another year. Larimer Beer Hall put eight breweries —  Beryl’s Beer Co, Black Shirt Brewing, Mockery Brewing, River North Brewery, Blue Moon, Epic Brewing, Jagged Mountain and Zephyr Brewing — on the fight card on Saturday, February 4, for a no-hops-barred brawl to the last sip. River North came out the champ, with a bold beverage called Hooray for Hops, which will soon hit liquor-store shelves in cans. For more photos, see our complete Beer Fight Club slideshow.

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
