Westword: The Ten Best Colorado Craft-Beer Events in September
“Did you feel that? It was a slight breeze on a hot day, but it carried with it just a tiny hint of cold temperatures, and it made you shiver. And that shiver set off a chain reaction in your brain that let you know fall is on its way. Football, golden leaves, chile peppers, pumpkin pies, sweaters, ski-pass sales — they’re pushing against the door, and it would only be polite to let them in and pour them a delicious beer.
That’s an easy task in September, which is full of fall seasonals, from Oktoberfest lagers to pumpkin beers to fresh-hopped wonders. Two of those Oktoberfest parties are listed here, along with three anniversary parties, a big new beer fest and some special releases. So crack one open, let the cold winds blow, and find some fun at one of our ten best Colorado craft-beer events in September.
