Bars have become the meeting places of choice now that libraries, public parks, and desolate midnight crossroads are all under Prohibition.

Reveling in the righteous synergy of food and ale, the first Colorado Beer Week seeks to soak hop-heads’ taste buds in a plethora of peerless beers while educating them on their versatility and depth. The Cruiser Crawl takes advantage of Denver’s bike-friendly streets, with participants placing themselves upon their self-provided cycles to travel to each of the four pubs primed for patrons. Pedal in for a pint at Freshcraft, Star Bar Denver, Cheba Hut, and Paramount Cafe, burning calories and forging friendships along the way. Like an invisibility cloak or invincibility suspenders, the VIP wristband grants its wearers special privileges, such as one free Ska Brewing Company Beer and $1 off each Ska Brewing Company beer purchased (prices vary by location). Those opting for both a VIP wristband and a T-shirt will be able to take to the streets in style, attracting the attention of pedestrians and the envy of display-window V-necks.
Colorado Beer Week
A year after Scott Kerkmans created the role of Chief Beer Officer for the Four Points by Sheraton hotels, it began to get around that Denver was the "Napa Valley of Beer." As NPR later reports, the rumor is a culmination of a life spent steeped in beer culture. Before creating Colorado Beer Week and beating out more than 7,000 applicants for the title of CBO, Kerkmans was on the production side at Alaskan Brewing Company. He’s since authored articles for Draft Magazine, taught at Cook Street School of Fine Cooking, and judged burped renditions of the Pledge of Allegiance at the Great American Beer Festival. He shares his taste in microbrews with more than 140 hotels and restaurants worldwide through the Four Point's beer program, but keeps his feet planted firmly on his home turf during his nine-day spring festival, which highlights the finest pours from Colorado breweries including New Belgium, Oskar Blues, and Ska Brewing Company.
