Don’t forget, Father’s Day is this weekend! There might still be enough time to get that card in the mail if you’re like me and procrastinated, right? Maybe. But, if you’re lucky enough to have your dad in Boulder with you this Father’s Day, there’s definitely still time to make some fun plans. My recommendation? Boulder Beer’s Father’s Day Pig Roast!

You read that right, starting at 1 PM this Sunday, Boulder Beer is going to be smoking pork and feeding families BBQ style. It sounds like it’ll be best to come hungry too because one $14 plate comes with smoked pork, BBQ black beans, macaroni salad, and Chef Logan Wolff’s homemade biscuits.

And don’t forget the beer (like you could, I know). Since Boulder Beer will be offering a dozen experimental brews at their 38th anniversary celebration the following Saturday (6/24), this might be a great time to enjoy an old favorite like the Sweat Betty Blonde Hefeweizen or the Singletrack Rye Pale Ale.

Speaking of that 38th anniversary celebration, just in case you and your father figure already have plans for his special day, be sure to mark down June 24th as a day for sun, music, and craft brews at Boulder Beer. Live music will play all day and they’ll be offering beer and cheese pairings as well as a tie-dye your own t-shirt station. All of this on top of those twelve experimental brews they’ll be offering in their pilot and barrel-aged beer garden.

All in all, Boulder Beer has a fun couple of weekends coming up and, whether it’s you and dad or you and friends, there’s sure to be something to appeal to everyone. See you out there!
