Beer Lovers Invited to Sample the Historic Creations of Dozens of Breweries and Cideries at “Brewsology Brewfest”

Denver, Colo. (June 10, 2022) — Beer lovers are invited to get tickets to the “Brewsology Brewfest” at the History Colorado Center on June 18, 2022 from 7 to 11 p.m., with an early admission ticket tier starting at 6 p.m.

Taking over the History Colorado Center after hours, the event will feature dozens of craft breweries and cideries with 100 options to sample. Attendees will get to experience historic beers, recreations of ancient recipes, retired craft classics and popular historic styles. Guests will also get access to all of the History Colorado Center’s thought-provoking exhibitions.

“Each of these beers has a story to tell and many of them will not be available elsewhere,” said event organizer Dan Silberstein. In addition to attendees sampling local historic favorites like Avery White Rascal, Lakewood’s Brewery 6 and 40 will be serving up a special recipe of their Bière de Garde which is crafted in the French Flanders style with specialty ingredients over six months. “In essence, this event is the boozy hybrid of your middle school museum field trip,” said Silberstein.

Attendees will get to learn from a beer historian who will host a trivia game for prizes. They will also get to explore “touch carts” containing historical beer artifacts. Colorado’s rich history of being a hubspot of the brewery and craft beer industry makes beer a theme History Colorado revisits. In 2019, History Colorado’s “Beer Here! Brewing in the New West,” exhibition explored the libation’s strong impact on the state’s history and culture.

Tickets are available at General admission is $50. Early admission is $65 and allows attendees to enter at 7p.m. to sample specialty beers. Tickets will not be sold at the door and are non-refundable. All attendees must be 21.
