The night belonged to Denver area geeks and comic enthusiasts last night May 30, 2014 at the 1up on Colfax, downtown Denver. For the third year in a row, Breckenridge Brewery teamed up with Denver Comic Con to kick off Denver’s premiere Sci-Fi convention to be held at the Colorado Convention Center this June 13 - 15, 2014. Attendees to the kick off were the first to try Breckenridge Brewery’s new brew named Brews Wayne beer. This dark and malty amber ale was enjoyed by beer and comic fans while chatting with friends and playing the fabulous old style arcade games. The fan voted name of “Brews Wayne” is the official 2014 Denver Comic Con beer with a name that was selected from more than 1000 names submitted and voted on by fans. The first 200 attendees were the lucky ones to get the free official ”Brews Wayne” pint glass that was designed by Josh Viola and Aaron Lovett. This fun bar was packed with geeks and smiles as they enjoyed music and a fun photo booth by Matthew Knows Photos.
Last night followed the big announcement that shook Doctor Who fans that none other than Amy Pond herself, Karen Gillan, was coming to Denver Comic Con. Along with the fifth Doctor, Peter Davison and the seventh doctor, Sylvester McCoy, and Star Trek: Next Generation reunion, Denver Comic Con is going to be the biggest event yet. Other guests include Adventure Time’s Jeremy Shada, Evil Dead icon Bruce Campbell, Buffy the Vampire Slayer’s Nicholas Brendon, The Walking Dead’s Chandler Riggs and Michael Rooker, and Walter Koenig. Big names in the biz as well as fans will all come together to raise funds for the non-profit organization Comic Book Classroom. This charity is a Non-profit organization created for low income schools and communities to help children with reading and writing difficulties.
