Win two tickets to DStill's American Craft Spirit & Cocktail Showcase

coloradorye.jpg
Next Wednesday, April 3, Denver will be raining small-batch spirits: vodka, whiskey, gin, bourbon, brandy, grapa, absinthe and more at DStill's American Craft Spirit & Cocktail Showcase, which runs from 6 to 10 p.m. and takes place at the McNichols Building at 144 West Colfax. There are 44 distilleries participating in the event, including Leopold Bros., Spring 44Distilling, Peak Spirits, Peach Street, Dancing Pines Distillery, Distillery 291, Downslope Distilling and Overland Distillery, and if you're lucky enough to snag a ticket, you'll undoubtedly be sloshed by the time the bottles run dry.

"When the American Distilling Institute announced that its annual spirit conference would be in Denver, distillers were excited about the opportunity to engage other top American craft spirit distillers," says Rob Masters, head distiller of Spring44 and president of the Colorado Distillers Guild, which is organizing the event, along with the Colorado Bartenders Guild and EatDenver, which will pump out "inspired bites" to go along with specialty cocktails featuring Colorado spirits. "DStill is going to be a serious celebrating of the best craft distillers in America, all here in Denver," Masters adds.

"It's a great trifecta of people," Masters says."It's one big circle that really makes things special." Tickets are $40 at www.dstill.co/, but you can win two tickets -- one for you and a guest -- by entering our contest. Here's what we want to know: There are 44 distilleries signed up to pour at DStill. How many individual products are those 44 distilleries pouring?

The Cafe Society commenter who comes the closest to the actual number without going over, will win the tickets. To enter, please leave your guess, your name AND an e-mail address in the comments section below. If you don't leave an e-mail address, you can't win.

We'll announce the winner next Tuesday.

My official guess after pulling out the TI-89 and crunching some hypothetical numbers would be around 159. This answer took me over 2 full minutes involving equations not currently known to mankind. Best of Luck to All.

Trick question. There are only 40 participating distilleries (per the website), each distillery is pouring one product, so 40 individual products. If that's not the answer, I call Shenanigans for publishing inaccurate information. - John Maurer jwmaus@gmail.com

@jwmaus Hi John. Lori is correct—we're in the process of updating the DSTILL site with the three unlisted distillers' info. Site should be updated in the next hour or so. And yes, many of the distillers are pouring multiple products.

@jwmaus That's not the answer, John (and according to the PR team, there are 44 distilleries, so my guess is that the website hasn't been updated). And several of the distilleries are pouring more than just one product.
