IPA Day is Thursday, August 3, this year. It’s one of the those silly food-and-beverage holidays without much of a background or a purpose. In Colorado, though, it’s easy to celebrate, because as most square-staters know, every day is IPA Day in Colorado. And Saison Day. And Stout Day. And Double Dry-Hopped New England-Style 100 Percent Brett-Fermented Imperial Session Amber/Scotch Hybrid Ale Day.
This month, you’ll be able to find just about any beer style you want at hundreds of creative breweries. Among the best are anniversary parties at Odd13 Brewing, Liquid Mechanics, Denver Beer Co., Avery and Resolute Brewing, as well as some collaborations and a few stellar festivals. Find dozens of events in our weekly Beer Calendar, which goes online on Wednesdays, and look below for the ten can’t-miss events over the next month.
