Playboy's Best of Colorado Beers and Upcoming Sudsy Events

There's lots going on in Denver's land of beer.

Jessie Levine

For bold flavor pairings and award-winning beers, head to Colorado Plus Brew Pub on Thursday June 4 at 6:30 p.m. for a five course beer dinner with Cannonball Creek Brewing Company. Nationally recognized and locally loved, Cannonball Creek will collaborate with the kitchen at Colorado Plus to create a food and beer pairing event that is sure to be phenomenal. Buy your tickets asap as the event will sell out.

Summer beer festival season is underway and notable events every week showcase the artisanal craft beverages that our state is producing. On Saturday June 6 from 2 to 6 p.m., Highlands Ranch Beer Festival will be pouring beer from all over the country with food trucks, lawn games, and live music to boot. This outdoor festival features some of the best breweries in the country in the stunning Civic Green Park  (Ridgeline Blvd, Highlands Ranch). More information is available here.

Playboy's beverage columnist took notice of Colorado's burgeoning beer scene with a recent article on the ten best beers in the state right now. Included on the list are some beloved mainstays as well as some crafty newcomers. TRVE's Stout O))), Comrade's Superpower IPA, Station 26's Cream Ale, and Funkwerks' Tropic King are a few of Playboy's top picks. What are yours?
