Completed cards may be redeemed for a complimentary 2018 commemorative Wassail Days mug.

RESOLUTE BREWING COMPANY
7286 S YOSEMITE ST #110
CENTENNIAL, CO 80112

January is when we set big goals like being more active, losing weight and eating healthier.  

It can be challenging to find the motivation during the darkest, coldest months of the year to get outside and run however committing to an event can help provide the accountability we need to keep it going.

They say the average New Year’s resolution lasts less than 2 weeks, let’s prove the statistics wrong and earn our beer!

This Resolution themed social fun run is for runners and walkers of all paces and ages, no pressure, just fun! Your 4 legged friends and kids are welcome to join in on the fun too (kids 12 and under run free, hot chocolate included!)

The course: 
Our winter fun run will take us along the beautiful dry creek trail. This nice flat paved and gravel path for an easy out and back route.

Games:
Traditional brew run events include our famous "Beer Olympics games".  Since the weather is variable this time of year we are waiting to see what games will be possible and we might have some new winter themed ones under wraps.........a keg sled pull relay perhaps?? Our Fitness partner Manic Training will surely have some fun fitness challenges in store for us regardless, snow bunnies perhaps?

Cost:  
$25 includes run entry, RESOLUTE brew, fun coaster, our "carb loading" pint glass, and fun swag donations from sponsors.   

CHECK OUT OUR “BRING A BUDDY” OPTION FOR THIS EVENT:

Friends don’t let friends train, run or drink alone! Set some big goals this year and then kick off the season by participating in our run. Register under our buddy team option with a friend and save $5 each on entry!
Full payment is required from one person upfront, however you can add/officially register your friend at a later time.  They can reimburse you later (or just buy you another brew at the event)!

ONE BREW NOT ENOUGH?!?

Dia De Los Muertos First Friday Art Walk
Nov

4:00 PM16:00

Dia De Los Muertos First Friday Art Walk

Denver's Art District on Santa Fe, Museo de las Americas, and the Consulate General of Mexico together present the inaugural Día de los Muertos Celebration and Parade during the November First Friday Art Walk. 

In the spirit of celebration, respect, and inclusion, we invite you to join the festivities. Face decoration stations will be positioned throughout the Art District starting at 4 p.m. Dress in your best Catrina attire and join the procession at 7 p.m. 

November 2 is a special day for everyone who holds the memory of a loved one near to their hearts. A century-old tradition becomes the embodiment of remembrance and celebration, a commemoration of the life of those who have left but are not forgotten. In the celebration of the Day of the Dead, death does not refer to an absence but to a living presence.

The many activities surrounding this holiday, which often times include offerings or altars to our loved ones, vary from region to region, but the common denominator is death, as a metaphor for life that materializes in the offered altar; almost as equally important is La Catrina, the ever-present symbol of Mexican culture's celebration of Día de los Muertos. The skeleton figure can be found throughout homes and altars with offerings on her behalf. 

November 2 celebrations for day of the Dead are filled with flowers, lights, food, music and many colors throughout the day, in which we want to hold close the memory of our loved ones. 

Join us for the procession and costume contest during the First Friday Art Walk to kick off Denver Arts Week in the Art District on Santa Fe as part of the celebrations of Day of the Dead.

For any first time visitors, please review our "Doggy Code" on our website prior to coming in. Your dog needs to be spayed or neutered to play off-leash (yes, even if they're a puppy), you will be asked to provide proof of valid rabies vaccine (tag, photo of a receipt or email will work). And lastly, for the safety of your children and dogs, we are not family friendly. Strict ages 16+
