Breckenridge Brewing joins the Earth Day celebrations

Plenty of restaurants and breweries across colorful Colorado are gearing up to give back this Earth Day with parties, clean-ups, fundraisers, and more. Denver diners aiming to participate have a variety of options to choose from - but don't worry, most of them include beer. Bounce around different breweries or choose from vegan and earth-friendly dinners. Either way, you can feel good about what you do; most establishments promise to donate a portion or all of their proceeds to local environmental organizations.

It is worth noting the Earth Day will serve as a last hurrah for vegan eatery Govinda's.

Note that this list is organized in alphabetical order. If you know of another Earth Day celebration that brings together restaurants and bars committed to making a statement on Saturday, April 22, leave a comment below with the details or send us a note through the tipline and we will consider adding it to this Mile High City area round up.
