Breweries at Denver Rare Beer Tasting II Announced

The preliminary lineup of breweries participating in the Denver Rare Beer Tasting II, a fundraiser for the Pints for Prostates campaign, have been announced.

“We have pulled together a heavyweight line up of breweries that will each bring a rare, limited release brew to the Denver Rare Beer Tasting,” said Rick Lyke, a prostate cancer survivor and founder of the Pints for Prostates campaign. “The brewers are generously raiding their private stocks to bring some incredible, exotic brews to the event. The reputation of the Denver Rare Beer Tasting spread rapidly after last year’s success. More than 60 percent of the tickets have been snapped up prior to the announcement of this tentative brewery list – and we’ve still not released the list of beers that will be poured.”

The attending breweries this year include:

Alaskan Brewing
Avery Brewing
Bell’s Brewing
Big Sky Brewing
Boston Beer
Brooklyn Brewery
The Bruery
Cascade Brewing
Cigar City Brewing
Deschutes Brewery
Dogfish Head
Foothills Brewing

Goose Island
Great Divide Brewing
Jolly Pumpkin Artisan Ales
New Belgium Brewing
Pike Pub & Brewery
Rogue Ales
Russian River Brewing
Sierra Nevada Brewing
Stone Brewing
Three Floyds Brewing
Upstream Brewing
Weyerbacher Brewing
Wynkoop Brewery

The event takes place at the Wynkoop Brewery on Friday, Sept. 17th from 1pm ~ 4pm. Tickets, on sale now, are $80 each and includes unlimited samples of more than 26 hard to find beers, a commemorative tasting glass and hors d’oeuvres. Only 500 tickets will be sold and it did sell out last year.
