When: Saturday, September 26 at 1pm
Where: Ophelia’s Electric Soapbox – 1215 20th Street, Denver, CO
Pat yourself on the back. You’ve survived most of GABF week and you’re still alive. That’s no small feat. But now that you’ve finished solo hi-fiving, downing a gallon of coconut water and sloping up the leftover cold pizza you conveniently placed on your on belly last night, it’s time to saddle up for one final day of awesome.
By Saturday I’m usually all for the gradual transition from beer toward whiskey so New Belgium’s Whiskey Sour Barrel Hour is my top recommendation for Saturday’s extracurricular GABF week events.
The event features New Belgium’s killer lineup of Sour Barrel Aged beers paired with the whiskey who’s barrels they were aged in. Add in the fact that Ophelia’s will be providing the paired food and you’ve got the perfect way to tie one on for a little hair of the dog.
“This is sure to be a GABF highlight this year. Blender Lauren Salazar and Distiller Todd Leopold host a guided tasting through Leopold Bros. fruited whiskeys paired with corresponding barrel aged sours from New Belgium. Whiskey and beer inspired appetizers from Chef Daniel Asher will also be paired alongside their corresponding flights.”
Tickets are still available for $50. Snag yours before they sell out!
