Four Excuses to Enjoy a Brew

BY Muriel Perez | September 26, 2017 | Feature Features

Colorado is a hub for craft beer companies, creating unique brews that embody the health and sustainability conscious mantra of its locals. Oktoberfest has kicked off in Germany and beer lovers around the world are happy to celebrate too. Every day in the mountains is a good day for a beer, and these four upcoming events will give you reason to indulge in one of Colorado's favorite pastimes.

Nudes and Brews
Aspen Shakti hosts a monthly drinking and drawing session at its new space on Hyman Avenue. This month's is tonight, Sept. 28. The new studio is already a town favorite. With ample space and a zen aesthetic, the calming room is the perfect place to meet your mat. Hone your drawing skills by sketching the human body in all its glory. If your artistic abilities are not on par, an adult beverage might help. 7pm $15, $5 extra to borrow supplies, 555 E. Hyman Ave., aspenshakti.com

Historic Pub Crawl
The Aspen Historical Society will be wrapping up its summer tours on Oct. 7. That means just two more chances—Sept. 28 and Oct. 5—to take part in the pub crawl to learn some juicy bits of history while enjoying the best local spirits on tap. Meet at the Red Onion and plan to make stops at Justice Snow’s and Aspen Brewing Co., finishing on a high note with the fascinating stories at the J-Bar, and perhaps an Aspen Crud. 3:30pm, 420 E. Cooper Ave., $20, aspenhistory.org

14er Film Fest
On Nov. 3 the 14er Brewing Company presents “Denver’s Hoppiest Action Film Fest.” The organizers have curated their top five action films, featuring work by Colorado artists. Get inspired to plan your next adventure with the help of some liquid courage. Specialty drinks will be served, including a Maroon Bells Hibiscus Guava and Mt. Massive IPA. 7pm, $20, beer included, 2801 Walnut St., Denver, eventbrite.com

Fall Back Beer Fest
Sit and sip as small-batch breweries and local beer connoisseurs provide background about each brew. The Nov. 4 festival will feature Colorado breweries, including Estes Park’s own Lumpy Ridge and Rock Cut. Denver bluegrass band Mountain Meadows will serenade guests with their unique sound, and the unlimited tastings will kick off with a pre-fest yoga session led by Brooke Larson ($15). Half price admission for designated drivers. $35, 12pm, 1125 Rooftop Way, Estes Park, fallbackbeerfest.com
