Festivus 2013!

There is nothing like a beer festival to bring holiday cheer! People gathered together Saturday evening in their most festive holiday attire and best Christmas sweaters for the 2nd annual Denver Beer Festivus.

As more and more breweries pop up in Denver, this beer festival will continue to showcase the local breweries. Denver Festivus grew in size this year, expanding to a two-level festival in the McNichols Building.

Some of the newest Denver breweries that attended were: Jagged Mountain, Former Future (not yet open), Epic, Diebolt, Station26, and Factotum.

There were lots of delicious beers to taste. Many breweries brought their regular beers and some brought their specialty brews. I was in the mood for some winter beers but it seemed there were not as many this year. I guess I will have to go visit the breweries! 🙂

Everyone was happily full of beer and the holiday spirit. Similar to Festivus last year, the festival ended in a huge dance party!
