March Events @ Denver’s BookBar

March 3rd, 2018

This is the idyllic spot for anybody who loves reading, eating and drinking, especially altogether. Imagine combining the frugal indulgence of happy hour with silent reading, literary trivia, a featured reading, or book club. You can do all of this (& more!) at BookBar. This trendy spot features a delicious menu riddled with clever item names (that also serve as literary allusions), such as Much Fondue About Nothing, Melville Melt, and Egg-ar Allen Pesto and libations including a list of local options.With its impressive array of events, BookBar is certainly a hub that both hosts &... Read More

Guanella Pass Brewing Company

February 9th, 2018

Each and every fall, right when the colors start to turn, I head for the hills—more accurately, for one of the best aspen-viewing routes in the state, through Guanella Pass scenic byway. In the summer, the road to Mount Evans summit opens, and provides a prominent 14er—the highest summit in the Front Range. In the winter months, however, Mount Evans summit is closed for the season, and despite more warm sunny days than snowy ones (especially this year so far), the road does not get nearly as much traffic than it does when the Rockies are ablaze with fall colors or warm weather welcomes summer... Read More

Joyride Brewing and a Little Sip of History

December 8th, 2017

On a busy corner of Sheridan Blvd with views of Sloan’s Lake lives a neat little brewery rooted in some interesting history. This side of Sheridan is technically the city of Edgewater; a bright-lighted arch welcomes you to this quaint sandwiched suburb, a literal stone’s throw from Denver proper across the street. In recent months, developers have sought to build up the Sloan’s Lake area into another hot Denver neighborhood, with the ever-popular Highlands and Lo-Hi areas bordering all the other sides of the lake. The businesses of Edgewater only serve to benefit from this potential... Read More

Brewery Rickoli: Where Everybody Knows Your Name

December 1st, 2017

In the quiet suburb of Wheatridge off 44th and Wadsworth, lives a brewery that embodies the bordering community: laid back, friendly, unpretentious, and true to itself. Wheatridge is unlike the other surrounding suburbs of Denver; there are no large plots of track developments, in fact, no construction at all (talk about a breath of fresh air!). You won’t find a Chili’s or Olive Garden; it is as if someone cast the city in a time-freezing protection bubble and somehow, all the mom-and-pop establishments operating for the past thirty years are still thriving, nestled in still-full... Read More

Drinking Consciously This Holiday Season

November 24th, 2017

I hope everyone has survived their Thanksgiving or Harvest holiday meals yesterday, or are pushing through if yours lasts through the weekend! For me, Thanksgiving marks the first day of the holiday season—a period of time at the end of the year for self-reflection, closure of the previous year, spending time with family, and giving a little extra back to the community at large. Taking the time to recognize one’s own little privileges and blessings in life and expressing gratitude can actually go beyond just donating money, toys and food, or volunteering time over the holidays with those in... Read More

New Image Brewing: Beer With a Purpose

November 17th, 2017

New Image Brewing has caught my eye for a while now, with nothing more than their sleek, classy branding on well distributed cans throughout local shops around the greater Denver area. Their product is always a solid choice, and bringing a six pack of New Image beer to a get together as my kind contribution has been a choice I’ve made more than once, the beer itself never disappointing. Which is why I was pleasantly surprised to learn after my first visit to their taproom in Olde Town Arvada recently, that their passion and purpose expands beyond the borders of a craft beer and just another... Read More

Stem Ciders: The Unofficial Drink of Winter

November 10th, 2017

 I’ll be totally transparent and begin by mentioning up front that Stem Ciders is my favorite tap room in Denver. Since 2014, Stem changed the way I thought about cider, and has never stopped impressing me since. Whether you are already a cider fan, are cider-phobic, or have never tasted cider other than from a bottle out of a variety pack from the liquor store, you owe it to yourself to visit Stem. Located in the heart of RiNo, Stem Ciders opened its doors right before the RiNo arts district boom, and in the past (nearly four) years now, they have seen a lot of changes. Fortunately for... Read More

Fall Festivities in Lafayette: Liquid Mechanics

October 20th, 2017

We have less than two weeks until Halloween: has everyone taken their annual trip to the pumpkin patch yet? If not, have no fear; there are plenty of places in and around Denver that are great for picking pumpkins, either for your kids or for the kid inside you that still carves a bitchin jack-o-lantern every October. And even better to note, the suburbs and small towns that surround Denver have been spontaneously poppin’ out plenty of good beer to satiate your needs when you venture out of the city. This year, we adventured at the very popular Anderson Farms in Erie for our pumpkin picking and... Read More

GABF 2017

October 13th, 2017

I hope everyone enjoyed GABF week and all the activities, tap-takeovers and special events that led up to the Fest, even if you did not get a chance to attend an official tasting! This year was jam-packed, with an estimated 60,000 plus attending over the weekend, flying in from all over the country. It always seems to take about a full week to recover, swear off beer for the rest of the year, and then gradually come back to the senses by the following weekend, beer in hand. With 800 breweries and over 7,000 beers entered, this was GABF’s biggest event yet. This year, the greater Denver area... Read More
