Street Pub, a giant beer pop-up, is coming to Denver on October 17 compliments of Deschutes Brewery. The craft beer block party, complete with a 402-foot custom bar, will pour Deschutes beers from 40 taps in the Ballpark neighborhood. The event will take place from 2 to 10 p.m. on 21st Street from Blake to Larimer.
The brewery's corporate executive chef, Jeff Usinowicz, has teamed up with Jake Grant of Euclid Hall and Carrie Baird of Brazen to create and offer dishes that complement the many beers being served, from the easy-drinking Mirror Pond Pale Ale all the way to the big and bold flavors of The Abyss.
A family-friendly event, Street Pub will include activities for the kids, special samplings and a live music lineup that includes Red Fox Run, The Outliers, Emily Clark & The Passing Fancy, and headlining act Fox Street.
The kicker is that it's all for a charitable cause. Deschutes Brewery donates 100 percent of the proceeds from Street Pub to local nonprofits and so far has raised more than $240,000 in 2015. In Denver, Bicycle Colorado, a nonprofit organization that encourages and promotes bicycling is the beneficiary.
