Colorado brewery tour takes on Tucson with lots of free beer.
The nice folks at Breckenridge Brewery are embarking on their annual “Breck Trek” culture tour and will be in Tucson Tuesday, November 13 – Thursday, November 15.
It’s the Colorado brewery’s experimental way to meet new people, share their beer for free, and take over the city in a totally fun and entertaining way. In order to try Breckenridge’s beer, make sure to find the crew member at the participating locations.
To start things off on Tuesday, November 13 from 6 – 8 p.m., Breckenridge Brewery is setting up shop at Casa Film Bar to begin their “Breck Bar Crawl and Art Show.” After sitting back with the brew crew and watching a classic Colorado-themed movie, the crawl moves on to Mr. Heads for a live mural painting featuring local artist Fleks.
Another place to meet the crew and try some of their beer is at The Hut during an intimate concert with Matt Nathanson at 8 p.m. on Wednesday, November 14. He’s taking a detour from his tour to play in a smaller venue and get to know the crowd — get there early as seats are on a first come, first served basis.
Possibly the brightest spot of the tour, and especially for anyone with an appetite, is the five-course beer-paired dinner at Union Public House at 7 p.m. on Thursday, November 15.
This dinner is free, but you must enter to win a spot at the table.
