The Great American Beer Festival flows through Denver today through Saturday, bringing with it 580 breweries, 2,700 beers and 49,000 thirsty beer lovers. Aside from the action at the Colorado Convention Center, there are hundreds of other craft beer-related events going on around town, including an Oskar Blues "It's All About the Package" party at Blake Street Tavern tonight at 9:30 p.m.
The GABF after-party includes lots of "big, badass" beer, live music from Halden Wofford & the Hi Beams, and a chance to review a new beer -- and its new can. The party is free, but to get in, you need to print out an invite from the Facebook page or show it to the doorman on your smartphone.
