It's good to do good. It's good to meet new people, hang out and listen to music, and sample excellent local beers. It's a kiki when all of those things converge for one amazing night.

The beer tasting will feature the Denver Beer Co., with their limited edition “Pineapple Micro Brew," as well as other Micro Breweries: Odell Brewing Co., Crazy Mountain Brewery, Downslope Distilling, and more! There'll be live music by DJ Flash Gordon and delicious appetizers, too. Fresh City Life will be on hand to demonstrate finger-knitting and to supply some fun SWAG.
