The Endless Summer Beer and Spirits Festival was a great event to finish off the summer. At least for me, my summer is technically over as I start class today I cannot complain too much though since it has been a great summer full of lots of fun activities, brews and bites
Imbibe Denver put this fun event together that brought tastings from local distilleries and breweries. There were also tasty bites from local restaurants: Humble Pie, Illegal Pete’s, Vesper Lounge and The Real Dill. Endless Summer was not just about booze, food, and music but also about raising awareness for H20. Water For People, a non-profit for water preservation and sanitation, made a presence there to help educate attendees on everything water.
Now to the booze…there were a lot of familiar brews from breweries like Great Divide and Ska but I was excited to taste some new ones from Verboten Brewing and Strange Brewing. Verboten had two beers that I really enjoyed: In Love with Summer and Halt and Stay. In Love with Summer was a Strawberry Rhubarb Wheat…need I say more? The Halt and Stay is an Imperial Red aged in Whiskey barrels and served on NITRO to make a smooth and creamy beer.
Strange had a Grapefruit IPA that was amazing. Of course, I love my IPAs and I love grapefruit so it was perfect for me It was both citrus-y and hoppy.
There were quite a few distilleries but I only got a chance to try Spring 44 and Roundhouse Spirits. Spring 44 had an amazing honey vodka. It was very smooth on the finish and delicious in a Moscow Mule. Roundhouse Spirits was also serving cocktails- they had a gin watermelon-infused drink.
Overall, Endless Summer was a fun event and a great way to spend my last weekend of summer!
