This weekend is rather slow as far as organized events, though perhaps it’s the calm before the storm, as April looks big. Of course there’s never a bad time to check out your local craft brewery, though the weather’s not looking cooperative for patio afternoons. Maybe that’s a sign to fill a growler and curl up at home with a movie.
Saturday 30: In north Denver Oasis Brewery celebrates a year of serving beer with their anniversary party featuring food, live music and of course a special tapping.
Saturday 30: Down in DTC Two Penguins Tap & Grill will hold their Hop Wars from 3 – 6 p.m. featuring the Imperial IPA Double Smackdown with beers from six local craft breweries. Get a flight and blind-taste all six, then vote for your favorites. Your vote puts you in the running for prizes, and for extra credit you can try to guess which beer came from which brewery.
Saturday 30: If you’re looking for some cheap (free, really) entertainment, Westfax Brewing Company is holding their free monthly comedy show starting at 8 p.m. Get their early for a seat and enjoy some Westfax beers and the food truck.
