Beers With(out) Beards is a movement. We are taking this week to celebrate the amazing women in the craft beer community–from brewery owners to brewers to historians to drinkers. We have a jam-packed week full of exciting events, including a panel on the history of women in beer, led by Theresa McCulla, and a discussion about the current culture of beer drinking, hosted by Pineapple Collaborative.

The main event of the week is the Beers With(out) Beards festival, featuring 20+ women-owned breweries or breweries helmed by female brewers. we think it is especially important that the women brewer or owner behind the beer is on hand to pour beer, answer questions, and start conversations. We have worked our hardest to make sure that the female brewer or founder will be present.

Get your tickets today and join us in celebrating the women in the craft beer community. Check below for the full beer list.

Black Project Spontaneous & Wild Ales
Denver, CO

Sour, 7.5% ABV

SUPERCRUISE starts with wine grapes from locally-sourced, family-owned vineyards in Palisade, CO. Once the grapes have been destemmed and crushed, the brewery allows the juice to rest for a few days – developing rich color and depth of flavor – before finally transferring the juice to neutral oak barrels along with our base Golden Sour. The beer then goes through a secondary fermentation while resting on the grapes, and after a few weeks is ready to bottle. The Cab Franc variation includes Cabernet Franc from Mesa Park Vineyards.
