Ray received an email from Jake, one of the minds behind the very amusing graphic you see above. Jake explained that the graphic was created out of Colorado state pride and to commemorate the upcoming Great American Beer Festival, and would be honored if we shared it. So why the heck not?
Today we get on a plane for the Mile-High City and have a semi-busy schedule for the first few days leading up to the AHA members-only session of GABF that we’ll be attending on Saturday afternoon. We’re looking forward to visiting Great Divide’s tap room again, where this time we’ll be able to enjoy some food from Appaloosa Grill that uses some of GD’s amazing beers in the dish. Reading the menu makes my mouth water.
There are a ton of events throughout the entire city that I’m sure we’ll trip upon, but Friday morning is reserved for a very special event. Ray and I will be attending the Ladies of Craft Beer Beer for Boobs Brunch at newly opened Freshcraft. I’m excited to meet some of my fellow LadiesOCB face-to-face, and am even happier to see 50% of each ticket go toward breast cancer awareness. Aside from a stellar buffet, deals on pints and a great crowd, the sold-out brunch will feature special guest Sebbie Buehler—the face of Rogue’s Chocolate Stout. She will be presenting as an exclusive keg of Double Chocolate Stout to be tapped. Excitement!
Then after GABF, Ray and I have an entire week to play in Denver and the surrounding areas. We plan on going back to Boulder, possibly making it up to Fort Collins, and basically checking out all of Denver’s nooks and crannies (Thomas English Muffin style!), as we discover more about the city that wowed us on our honeymoon last year and convinced us it should be our new home.
