Do you like beer? Do you care about the environment? You’re here, reading this blog, so I can only assume the answer to the first question is yes. Also, since you’re looking for things about Boulder and our wonderful city is nestled at the foot of the Rockies, it’s probably safe to assume you’d like to see those mountains stay beautiful too. Tonight, Friday April 28th, the Boulder Theater is giving us the chance to use our love of beer to do more good in our community and is hosting Microbreweries for the Environment!

Breweries from all over the area will be coming together to raise funds for the CU Environmental Center, Friends of Red Rocks, Colorado Community Rights Network, and Falling Fruit. These charities work hard in Boulder to help us maintain access to things from contemporary foraging to maintaining Red Rocks Park to community rights education.

Unlimited samples from breweries such as Avery, Twisted Pine, and Oskar Blues are included in the ticket price, currently set at $25 and available on the Boulder Theater website. And, since the event is taking place at a concert venue and all, musical entertainment will be provided by The Brothers Comatose, The Drunken Hearts, and Chain Station. If you’re coming in to this with beer as your primary motivation and maybe aren’t familiar with the bands, think americana/folk/bluegrass. Show starts at 8 but doors open and the beer starts flowing at 7. With 20+ breweries participating, you’ll probably want to get there early to take full advantage of the “all-you-can-responsibly-drink” clause with your ticket.

Tickets haven’t sold out yet but, as the event begins in a matter of hours, I would recommend snatching up a couple for you and a friend sooner rather than later. See you out there!
