Denver Beer Festivus served brews from breweries located within Denver city limits to ugly-sweater wearers on December 14, 2019. Additionally at Mission Ballroom, check out the two-day “Denver Comes Alive” event with Yonder Mountain String Band, Lettuce, Word and many more. When you’re here, you’re surrounded by people who care about breweries and independence.
Organizers who claim their beer fest can update the listing’s details, sell tickets, add photos and more. At the beginning of each month, we deliver a food and beverage-based itinerary for the best ways to eat and drink your way through the city — including what’s recently opened and what’s worth celebrating for no reason at all. As ’23 begins, now is not the time to play it safe or resort back to all the same places you visited last week. Instead, the Eat+Drink Denver Pass is the perfect way to broaden your tastebuds and plan a date or night out with friends without breaking the bank. With Denver’s diverse and extensive culinary scene, many locals search for ways to make the most of the unique dining opportunities surrounding them.
The event also included Lucha Libre, comedy, a silent disco and a holiday market. Six food vendors and more than 50 breweries and cideries kept those bellys full like a bowl full of jelly. Last year’s festival featured 19 breweries with roughly 500 craft beer enthusiasts and a dance party. This year’s Festivus will feature at least 24 breweries, from established breweries beer drinkers have come to know and love, to the breweries that are just opening their doors. Holiday parties are taking over the food and drink scene in Denver this week.
In a holiday season littered with White Elephants, tinsel and ugly sweaters, I think it’s safe to say what we really care about is cutting straight to the booze and debauchery. Denver Beer Festivus, which returns on Saturday, December 14 from 3-6 pm., cuts to the chase with a host of Denver-based breweries in attendance. This year’s event taking place at Major Studio will also feature a silent disco floor from SoundDown, part luchador-style wrestling and comedy from Lucha Libre and Laughs, a holiday market, food vendors, and plenty more surprises. The seventh annual Denver Beer Festivusunited craft beer, tasty treats and 1990s nostalgia for one big non-denominational partay.

Although the temperatures are dropping here in Denver, there is no short supply of your favorite beer festivals. The Denver Beer Festivus celebrated eight years this past Saturday afternoon. We have always maintained this one of our favorites, nothing changed as a slew of local breweries were on hand to sample some of their favorite brews.
Beer drinkers were decked out in their favorite ugly sweaters and holiday attire making for some amazing outfits (we even saw multiple Cousin Eddie’s from Christmas Vacation). This years edition spread out over several rooms making it easy to navigate from brewery to brewery with little to no del mar beer fest lines. Food was a plenty as a food court had everything from warm pretzels to pizza for you to enjoy. A silent disco was on site providing for some amazing tunes by some of Denvers best DJ’s. If you have never been to one of these we highly suggest you put it on your radar for next year.
With nearly fifty local breweries in attendance, this year’s Denver Beer Festivus was a huge success. It marked the eighth year of the Seinfeld-themed party put on by Two Parts, who invited every craft beer maker within Denver city limits. Feats of strength, the Festivus pole, the airing of grievances and a whole herd of ugly-sweater wearers made for the weirdest non-traditional holiday party in town.
Whether you’re a wine-o, a beer geek or prefer spirits there is an event for you. Lefebvre is usually on-site one week per month, during which time he stays at the hotel and keeps the overall vision of his restaurant steady. But the day-to-day operations are handled by chef de cuisine Jeff Schwing. So while it may be Lefebvre filling the menu with classics like Escargot and Duck Confit and new plates like Chilaquiles, it’s Schwing who keeps the execution consistent.
