Kick your weekend off right at the fourth annual Winter Brew Fest at Mile High Station, 2027 West Colfax Avenue. This don't-miss event for winter beer lovers will feature tastings of more than seventy samples from upwards of 25 breweries.
The general admission ($30 in advance, $35 at the door) festivities start at 7 p.m., but VIP admission ($40 in advance, $45 at the door) gets you in at 6 p.m., and also includes a special beer-and-cheese pairing from Sierra Nevada and Cabot Cheese. There will be live music by Jubal and the Rude Boys, a silent auction (where you can bid on Outlaw tickets, a cheese basket and even a condo in Winter Park), and everyone gets a souvenir glass to take home -- plus, Hotel VQ is offering special rates as well as free parking and transportation to the fest, just in case you taste a few too many brews.
