Take a dip into history at the Wynkoop Brewing Co.

Support the independent voice of Denver and help keep the future of Westword free.

The blow-out, twentieth anniversary celebration of the Wynkoop Brewing Co., 1634 18th Street, continues today with the after-party for the Gorilla Run and then, at 2 p.m., an amazing (and potentially very icky) stunt: a dive into a giant bowl of artichoke dip.

Dozens of former Wynkoop employees who returned for the festivities have been taking their own dips into a river of memories -- and beer -- and you can join in the fun. And if you have enough fun, share your story here, where we've been collecting reminiscences of the Wynkoop. In honor of this weekend's activities (and potential for great stories), we've extended our deadline until Monday -- so spill your guts, and you may win free beer! -- Patricia Calhoun

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.
