Chris Day and Chelsea Mitchell recap the 2014 Big Eat presented by Eat Denver
Check out our coverage of the Big Eat! I’ll post more pictures of the event later today 🙂
The Great Divide Anniversary party was an absolute blast. Quite possibly one of the best beer parties I’ve ever been to! Not one did we drink brand-spankin-new brews, we ate from food trunks and dances to punk and 90’s music. Please, please, please can we do it all over again?
The new brews we drank and the Great Divide 20th Anniversary party were OUT OF THIS WORLD. A few of my favorites were Yeiser, Berliner Weisse, and Red Comet.
Yeiser was a 10% saison…you know how I love saisons and I definitely LOVE this saison.
Berliner Weisse was, you guessed it, a berliner weisse. It was a tart, refreshing, dream-in-a-glass. I’m probably most excited about this one.
Finally, Red Comet. Oh lordy, how do I describe the amazing flavors bursting out of this brew? I can’t because I was slightly tipsy after drinking endless beers and my hands were too full to write anything down. What I can tell you is that Red Comet is a Flanders red ale, its sour as all hell and its complex, sexy body made me drink more than one glass. Bravo, Great Divide! You are geniuses.

Slue Foot Sue’s Shindig last night at the McNichols Building was a gosh darn hog-killin’ time (that’s western slang for ‘it was awesome’). Like all events put on by Imbibe, I wouldn’t expect anything less. Who is this lady Sue we were celebrating? She’s the star of an old western folk tale and the wife of Pecos Bill. Legend says that shortly after getting married, Sue got thrown from Bill’s horse, Widowmaker, and started bouncing back and forth between the moon and the earth. Now, there are several versions of the ending – one in which Bill shoots her to stop her from bouncing, one where he saves her but leaves her, one in which she lands on the moon, etc. I don’t know what ending to believe but I do know that Slue Foot Sue must’ve been one heck of a fun lady because her party was a blast.

Favorite Parts of Collaboration Fest 2014:
Success. Its the best word to describe Collaboration Fest 2014. I have been to other beer festivals before, but this was by far one of my favorite. Not only did I get the chance to try over 35 new brews, there was enough for everyone! I’ve seen problems at festivals in the past where breweries come unprepared and run out before the festival is over. Not at Collaboration Fest. I stayed until the very end and the party was still poppin’.
