so denver is definitely a beer town. i never doubted that. but i didn’t really know how much we like our beer until si and i tried to go to the beer festival and it was SOLD OUT. at $45 a ticket. in the convention center that holds thousands of people.
and it was truely sold out. not fake sold out where you can buy tickets on the street for face value. there were about 150 people milling about out front trying to find tickets.
we gave up after 20 minutes and decided to go to the rapids game instead. i was dissapointed at first, but then remembered that pro soccer players are HOT. so i had fun at the game and we met up with our friends after the festival at the wynkoop*. they were smart enough to buy tickets ahead of time.
*this brewery was founded by our mayor. that’s how much of a beer town denver is.
