The Winter Brew Fest is sold out.
However, brew organizers are still selling tickets at the door for those who face last-minute cancellation and want to take a chance to try to get into the annual event designed for beer lovers.
Lines are expected to swell in large crowds at least one hour before general admission. More than 45 breweries from all over Colorado have signed up for this annual event.
Attendees, who bought tickets for early entrance at 6 p.m., will get first taste of great brews and beers with this exclusive, limited admittance VIP hour with special Cabot cheese sampling and Colorado Native beer pairing.
"We create an intimate setting with a fun atmosphere with live music and good people serving good beer," said Amy de Leon, Managing Partner of RightOn Productions, LLC, the company behind the annual Winter Brew Fest.
Beer lovers, attempting to purchase tickets this past week, discovered the "Sold Out" words on the event's website at www.denverbrewfest.com. Another chance to enter the venue is waiting outside patiently for anyone to leave the event, which is scheduled to end at 10 p.m.
Most brew lovers appreciate the intimate venue of sampling several brews instead of the large complex of the convention center in downtown Denver that holds the annual Great American Beer Festival late September. It's a chance to share notes of taste with the actual brewers and those behind the local Colorado breweries.
TIP 1: While temperatures aren't as frigid as last year, be prepared to wait awhile before gaining admittance if you haven't bought your ticket ahead of time.
TIP 2: Cash is required for last-minute attendees.
TIP 3: Pick your designated driver or call any of the local taxi companies at (303) 333-3333.
Cash only at door. The event starts at 7 p.m. and ends at 10 p.m.
