Take your pick of events this Saturday, from music festivals to biking and Halloween to facial hair. Sadly the rest of the weekend is rather bare, or perhaps a good excuse to hit the local craft brewery for a quiet one.
Friday 27 – Sunday 29: This year Sesh Fest and the Underground Music Showcase have teamed up for a weekend-long beer and music event. Kick back with low ABV pours from over a dozen breweries and enjoy some great music at various venues and stages along broadway. Two breweries are even hosting events – Baere Brewing Company and Banded Oak Brewing! Note: This is a ticketed event.
Saturday 28: The rubber hits the road again this month at the West Side Brewery Bike Loop circling between Westfax Brewing Company, Joyride Brewing Company, Hogshead Brewery, and Seedstock Brewery. Pick up a punch card at any of the stops for $1 off a beer at each brewery and when you complete the loop you get a free future beer. This month has a beach theme so dress accordingly!
Saturday 28: Dig out last year’s costume or create a new one for Ursula Brewery’s Halloween in July. Ursula will have individual and group costume contests, candy, Halloween crafts, and even themed games. If you’re feeling particularly ambitious you can even bring a carved pumpkin for the jack ‘o lantern contest.
Saturday 28: Beer, Bacon, and Bluegrass take the stage on Black Shirt Brewing Co.’s back patio. No ticket necessary, just show up after 2 p.m.to eat, drink, and enjoy!
Saturday 28: Why beat around the bush with a fancy name? Thirstyfest says it all as they bring over 15 breweries to the McNichols Building in Civic Center along with entertainment and food. Festivities start bright and early at 11 a.m. Note: This is a ticketed event.
Saturday 28: The final entry on the festival list pulls together IPAs from seven breweries at West End Tavern’s JUL-IPA in Boulder. From noon to 3 p.m. they’ll have beer and bourbon tasting, food, music, and an auction of beer-related merchandise. Note: This is a ticketed event.
