Where to Sample Some of the Best Dark Craft Beers

January 15 2010, 9:58 AM
I've been reviewing dark beers for the past few months---from Great Divide's Yeti to AC Golden's Winterfest to Oskar Blues' Velvet Elvis---but if you haven't had a chance to try them at home yet, tomorrow offers an opportunity to catch up. Wynkoop has anticipated our needs and is hosting the Parade of Darks this Saturday from 1-5 p.m. They'll be featuring over 25 big, dark beers, such as barley wines, stouts, and porters from some fantastic breweries like Lost Abbey, Back Country, and Boulder Beer, to name just a few. The sampling takes place upstairs in the Wynkoop pool hall. Admission is free, and samples are $1 each. A $25 wristband will allow you sample as much as you like. 1634 18th St.; 303-297-2700
