The Denver [only] Beer Festivus is back for a 5th year!
Since this is an anniversary of sorts, expect all the good parts of years past, but amplified to be approximately 162% more fantastic! We’ve also moved the party back to a Saturday afternoon to ensure maximum enjoyment (and no pesky complaints about missing certain football games).
First timer, or need a refresher on what Festivus is?
This special holiday-timed beer fest is the pinnacle celebration of Denver’s amazing growing craft beer scene and the culture that comes with it. We start by asking EVERY SINGLE brewery in Denver’s city limits to attend. Then we drizzle on some light references to the Seinfeld-created holiday by encouraging attendees to air their grievances, participate in Feats Of Strength and pay some respect to the Festivus pole. At the end of it all, this is just a big party designed to get Denver to raise a glass to the brewers and the beer they create.
Will there be shuttles to and from the event again?

Where you'll imbibe
It’s all going down in a gigantic airplane hangarWings over the Rockies is an air and space museum chock full of airplanes, jets, turbines, rockets, space suits, and history. They’ve got over 48 planes in the 1930s-era former Air Force hangar. Just imagine drinking the city’s best beers amongst historical aircraft and missiles surrounded by fellow Denverites in celebration of Denver beer!
Who this benefits
A portion of proceeds always go to New EraWe’ve partnered with New Era for all five years of Festivus. If you’re not familiar with the organization, their primary objective is to register young voters and make sure they’re informed. They're nonpartisan and focused on "leading Colorado not left, not right, but forward. " No matter your views, I think we can agree the more people who vote, the better! Help us help them by joining us at Festivus.
How we got here
Festivus is turning five years oldFestivus was born in 2012 when two beer-loving gentlemen agreed to unite forces and bring more craft beer to the people of Denver. Five years later and the idea has blossomed and grown immensely, as has the number of breweries in the city limits. The festival is a Two Parts favorite and one that we work extra hard to make fantabulous each year. 2016 will mark the 5th Festivus and most local beer-centric party yet!
