September 2010 Colorado Beer Festivals

Here is a list of the upcoming Colorado beer festivals, beer dinners, tapping parties, seminars and related events that are known or planned for the month of September 2010. These listings are updated every week, so stop back often to see the latest happenings with beer in Colorado. Dates and events are subject to change. If you know of a Colorado event that you don't see here, please leave a comment and let us know. I'll be happy to add it.

Note: Most dates for September 2010 events have not yet been finalized. The following list is intended to give an indication of the recurring events that are typically held each year.

GABF Week Events
Stay tuned for all the dozens of events surrounding the 2010 GABF.

Great American Beer Festival (GABF)
September 16-18, 2010
Colorado Convention Center
Denver, CO
The 29th annual GABF is even earlier this year! Don't miss out on one of the biggest beer festivals on earth. Last year over 470 breweries and 2400 beers were on hand along with 45,000+ fans. This year is expected to be as big as ever. Get your tickets EARLY starting in late June as this event usually sells out by late-August. Hang out after the fest each day in LoDo for several before and after GABF parties. If you can only attend one Colorado beer festival this year - make it this one!

Denver Rare Beer Tasting II
September 17, 2010 (Fri)
Wynkoop Brewery (tentative host)
Denver, CO
Downtown Denver will once again host a premier tasting of rare and exotic beers on Sept. 17th from 1:00 to 4:00 p.m. at the Wynkoop Brewery to benefit the Pints for Prostates campaign. The 2nd Denver Rare Beer Tasting is taking place in Mile High City during the annual Great American Beer Festival when thousands of beer fans will be in the city. The event will feature a select group of more than 20 of America’s top craft brewers each pouring a legendary beer. These very special, rare and exotic beers will be presented by the brewers who created them to an extremely limited audience. Money raised by the event goes to support the Pints for Prostates campaign, created in 2008 by Rick Lyke, a drinks journalist and prostate cancer survivor. The campaign uses the universal language of beer to reach men with an important message about the need for regular prostate health screenings.

Roughly 450 tickets will be available for the event. Admission, which includes unlimited beer samples, hors d’oeuvres, a commemorative tasting glass and the chance to meet some of America's top brewers, is $55 in advance and $65 at the door (estimate). Tickets can be purchased online (info TBA) and at the Wynkoop Brewery. For information call 800-977-BEER or visit

Additional events will be added as they become known. Please report additions or corrections to Chipper Dave (see email on the side column).
