Where to Sample Some of the Best Dark Craft Beers


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
