CIRQUE ITALIA IS THRILLED TO PRESENT THEIR NEWEST AND GREATEST CREATION – AQUATIC SPECTACULAR. YOU DON’T WANT TO MISS ITS DEBUT IN AURORA!
What comes to mind when you hear the phrase “Aquatic Spectacular”? Water, entertainment, excitement……?

After six years of enhancements, a rigorous casting selection, and countless performances nationwide, this newest form of Cirque Italia’s innovative and unique “traveling circus” spectacular production is set to be its finest to date. 
Aquatic Spectacular came to life all thanks to its imaginative creator Manuel Rebecchi, along with invaluable direction and production management by Chanté DeMoustes. Cirque Italia’s brand-new theme show is an artistic blend of human abilities, technology and the element of water. This one-of-a-kind production combines water fountains, jet-skis, pirates, and more in a fun filled atmosphere all ages are sure to enjoy.
Performers from all over the world have been brought together under the enchanted spiral of the white and blue big top. The merging of their astonishing skills with the poetic element of water has led to the creation of a truly unforgettable experience. Cirque Italia has managed to create a beautifully unique theatrical production by combining the gracefulness of the human body with the calming fluidity of water, along with bursts of power and excitement as well. 
Aquatic Spectacular offers two hours of high-end entertainment. Beautiful aerialists dazzle and shimmer on a chandelier high above the ground, but they aren’t the only ones that will draw your eyes toward the sky. You can expect to see contortion in a bubble, a Venetian aerial duo, and even someone hula hooping while in the air. Don’t worry about getting your eyes checked, you aren’t seeing double; there are TWO lasermen. Duo jugglers, duo roller-skaters, the always breathtaking wheel of death………the list goes on and on. It is even possible for a pre-historic dinosaur to make an appearance. Let your imagination wander, because anything is possible in this new whimsical production.

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.

The Town of Frisco's iconic Wassail Days returns November 30—December 9, 2018. The weeklong celebration of the winter and holiday season celebrates wassail, a traditional warm Old English apple cider.

This year’s Wassail Days will showcase more than 60 local businesses, each sharing their own special wassail recipe over the 10-day festival; guests will then have the opportunity to complete their “12 Sips of Wassail” card, and vote for their favorite recipes. Completed cards may be redeemed for a complimentary 2018 commemorative Wassail Days mug.

 

Additional events throughout the week encourage good, clean holiday fun with a dose of wackiness. Highlights include Breakfast with Santa, the “Soup Cup Classic” with unlimited tubing and soup tasting (and beer!) at the Frisco Adventure Park, carolers, free sleigh rides and a tree lighting featuring 600 luminaries up and down Frisco’s Main Street. A full schedule of events can be found HERE.

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?!?  

Check out our new Winter 4 pack: Participate in 4 brew runs for the price of 3!

15th Annual Fresh Hop Festival
Oct

12:00 PM12:00

15th Annual Fresh Hop Festival

The Colorado Brewers Guild, a non-profit trade association representing Colorado craft breweries and brewpubs, and Falling Rock Tap House will host the 15th annual Fresh Hop Festival at Falling Rock Tap House (1919 Blake Street, Denver CO 80202). 

As we transition from summer to fall, Denver’s Fresh Hop Festival is the event for hop connoisseurs. This unique craft beer event puts the spotlight on fresh hop beers - beers made with whole cone hops that connect with the wort within 24 hours of harvest. Because fresh hop beers are created so quickly after harvest, these seasonal beers have a shorter shelf-life but are fresh and delicious. 


Participating breweries include: 

Aspen Brewing Company, Boulder Beer Company, Bristol Brewing Company, BURLY Brewing Company, Call to Arms Brewing Company, Capitol Creek Brewery, Chain Reaction Brewing Company, Comrade Brewing Company, Crystal Springs Brewing Company, Dry Dock Brewing Company, Horse & Dragon Brewing Company, Joyride Brewing Company, Liquid Mechanics Brewing Company, Locavore Beer Works, Lone Tree Brewing Company, New Belgium Brewing, Odell Brewing Company, Pagosa Brewing & Grill, Paradox Beer Company, Sanitas Brewing Company, Spice Trade Brewing, Station 26 Brewing Company, Storm Peak Brewing Company, Strange Craft Beer Company, TRVE Brewing Company, Upslope Brewing Company, Verboten Brewing & Barrel Project, West Bound and Down Brewery, Westbound & Down Brewing Company/Cannonball Creek Brewing Company, WestFax Brewing Company, Wibby Brewing, Yampa Valley Brewing Company and more.


Beers will be sold by the glass with 50 cents per pour donated to the Colorado Brewers Guild. 


As one of the main ingredients in beer, whole cone hops are worth the buzz. This festival celebrates beers brewed with fresh hops from the vine, which deliver an unparalleled hop character. From bitter and piney to juicy and citrus forward, beer lovers can expect a wide variety of hoppy flavor, color and style at this year’s Fresh Hop Festival.

Beerkwerks Hosts Arvada Firefighter Fundraiser

Odyssey Beerwerks is partnering with Arvada Fire Fighters Local 4056, Friends of Arvada Fire, and the Arvada Professional Firefighters Foundation to raise money for a 9-11 memorial at Arvada Fire Station #2. The fundraiser will take place at the Odyssey Beerwerks taproom (5535 W. 56th Ave, Ste. 107, Arvada) and features the release of the Old Dodge Irish Red Ale, a beer brewed in collaboration with Arvada firefighters.

 

The party will kick off at 2 p.m. with the official beer tapping at 3 p.m. Old Dodge Irish Red Ale is malt-focused ale that brings out the hearty flavors of fall with rich caramel and slightly roasted malts to create a solid foundation for a touch of smoked malt in the finish. The Old Dodge is named after Arvada’s first motorized fire engine from 1923, which will be on display during the fundraiser. 

 

Firefighters from Arvada and all over Colorado will be in attendance with Old Dodge pint glasses and t-shirts available for purchase. Food truck Pambasos will be serving up authentic Mexican fare all day and Denver-based band, The Duke Street Kings, will be playing rock and roll and blues later in the evening.

 All proceeds from sales of the Old Dodge Irish Red Ale on September 29 will go towards the 9-11 Memorial fund along with a portion from sales of other beer styles.
