Plenty on tap outside of #GABF on the calendar this week

Categories: Culinary Events

The 2011 Great American Beer Festival.
The Great American Beer Fest will fill the Colorado Convention Center this Thursday through Saturday. Tickets to the seminal celebration of craft beer sold out in record time this year, and Cafe Society will be offering up comprehensive and "professional" coverage throughout the week -- as well as a couple of contests to get those coveted tickets.

In the meantime, here a taste of the rest of this week's culinary calendar:

The taps at Falling Rock

The world-renowned Falling Rock Tap House is hosting its traditional GABF Kick-off party at 5 p.m. today. The dean of Denver beer bars will tap ten special kegs it's been saving; call 303-293-8338 for more information.

It's pint night at Lucky Pie, 1610 16th Street, featuring five limited- edition beers from Oskar Blues Brewery. Call the restaurant at 303-825-1021 to check availability, and to learn more about the rest of the week's beer events.
