The Denver Rare Beer Tasting returns for the thirteenth time on October 7. The popular event raises funds for Pints ​​for Prostates and will take place from noon to 4 p.m. at the McNichols Civic Center Building at 144 West Colfax Avenue. The tickets are on sale now for $200 and includes tasting admission, a tasting glass, food, and a t-shirt.

“We are thrilled to renew the tradition of Denver Rare Beer Tasting,” said Rick Lyke, founder of Pints ​​for Prostates. “It’s very important to our fundraising efforts and to providing free health screenings. We’ve tested thousands of men over the years and couldn’t do what we do without the support of brewers and beer lovers.”

Like so many beer events, COVID has derailed the festival for the past two years. The organization is resilient, however, with more than $2 million raised to date for awareness and support groups for men battling prostate cancer.

“The Denver Rare Beer Tasting is about the beer, the people, and the cause,” Lyke continues. “It’s an incredible afternoon of passion for beer that helps us reach people through the universal language of beer.”

The event also includes a silent auction, with rare and unique collectibles and experiences donated to help raise additional funds for the organization.

The recently resurrected All About Beer Magazine is the media sponsor of the event. Editor John Hall says, “This gathering has always been an intimate, well-organized beer-friendly afternoon. Brewers are thrilled to dust off rare casks or pour new creations for a grateful crowd that cares about health and wellness. The Pints ​​for Prostates organization has done so much through beer for years and All About Beer is proud to be back as a media sponsor.”

The brew list is stellar, as always, with some of the best breweries in Colorado and the country coming together for a great cause. The beer list will be released prior to the event, and many of these breweries are offering special, hard-to-find beers at the event.
