Barrels of Beer for Bags of Fun
Drink beer and soak up some sun for our charity, Bags of Fun
SATURDAY, JUNE 17TH – ALL DAY
We take great pride in helping a local, Colorado-born 501(c)(3) that addresses very specific needs for children that have been afflicted with some scary challenges. If we are going to put our money where our mouth is…well, the breweries will, too! This event has been curated to see to it that Bags of Fun can continue to do their work and you, the craft beer lover, can join in on this fine day.
In fact, this event will cater to not only the craft beer lover, but also the craft beer lover’s children. Adults will be sipping on craft beer that has been donated by several Colorado breweries and they can rest assured that all proceeds from these donated kegs are going straight to Bags of Fun. The children in attendance will be able to take part in building their own personal pizzas for lunch, playing some games on the patio and even have their face painted. Who doesn’t like a good face painting?
Our Signature Beer partner, Epic Brewing Company, is among a group of breweries that will be donating a keg for this event. Also joining in the fun will be Oskar Blues, Breckenridge and Left Hand . Each brewery rep comes with activities like bags or corn-hole, event ticket giveaways, swag and a few surprise tricks up our sleeve to keep the kids and adults entertained all day.
This event will be happening at our Highlands Ranch location only on Saturday, June 17th starting at 11am. Technically, the event runs all day but here are some of the highlights of the event and when they’ll be going down.
11a – 12p – Epic Brewing will be tapping a special firkin of our very own Parry’s IPA flavored with Mike and Ike’s. We’ll be calling this, ‘Mike & Ike’d Parry’s IPA’. They will also be providing a free brewery tour to anyone that can guess how many Mike and Ike’s are in a jar.
12p – 2p – Breckenridge Brewery will have their art project installation on hand for the kiddos. This is a traveling art exhibit that they encourage kids to participate with/in. It’s mostly a lot of fun for the kiddos!
12p – 2p – Kids Build Your Own Pizzas – . Kids get to make their own pizza, hand it off to our staff and it comes out of the oven just the way they wanted it.
1p – 3p – Our face painting specialist will be in the house applying art to the faces of those interested. Adults welcome.
2p – 4p – Oskar Blues will have some games on hand for the kiddos to play. There will be things like life-sized Jenga and corn hole.
7p – Left Hand Brewing will be raffling off tickets to their very own, Leftapalooza Party for those that make a monetary donation to Bags of Fun.
Be on the look out for our very Parry’s Prize Wheel spinning on our patio. If you make a monetary donation to Bags of Fun, you get the chance to take a spin and win some pretty decent prizes.
Beyond our donated beer menu, we will also be taping some serious beer including the following:
120 Minute IPA by Dogfish Head
Xibalba by Wicked Weed
Oil Man by Elevation
Barrel-Aged Death by Coconut
Bourbon County Stout by Goose Island
Barrel-Aged Vanilla Porter by Dry Dock
Strawberry Farmer’s Reserve by Almanac
La Folie (2014) by New Belgium
Hope to see all of our regulars out for this one. It should be a hoot!
