Summer in LoDo: Baseball, Conventions, Concerts, Beer and … Ice Cream!?!

Summer is a great time to be in Denver.  Over the next two weeks we have a lot of events within walking distance to Freshcraft and we hope to be your pit stop before and after.

The biggest and probably most fun thing happening next week is the Outdoor Retailer Summer Market Showcase.  This convention takes place on July 23rd to July 26th at The Colorado Convention Center and brings to Denver all of the top Outdoor Retailers and suppliers across the country for 4 days of seminars, demos, new product showcases and releases and tons of networking throughout the industry.   For all the industry visitors we are a quick walk from the Colorado Convention Center, swing by after that long day or take a break from the action and grab lunch or dinner with us.  We have 26 drafts, over 100 beers in bottle and can, full bar with awesome signature cocktails and daily food features from our talented scratch kitchen.

Rockies Rockies Rockies!  Man these guys have been streaky this year.  Between July 24th and July 29th The Colorado Rockies have 5 home games against the Houston Astros and finishing off against the Oakland Athletics at Coors Field.  Rockies home games are a ton of fun and a great excuse to get out into the sun and stars and cheer on a local professional sports team.  With so many great places to eat around Coors Field they tend to fill up really quickly before games.  Walk an extra block or two and swing into Freshcraft and enjoy Happy Hour from 3-7pm with select Happy Hour food options and awesome drink specials including $12 buckets of Station 26 Cream Ale, $4.50 16oz drafts and $6 Jameson Caskmates Whiskey on draft!

The Pepsi Center has been busy this summer also with the many concerts almost weekly.  Over the next couple weeks, we have some big names coming through including Foreigner (July 24th), Shania Twain (July27th), and arguably the most popular artist in the world right now Drake with Migos making a 2-day trip to Denver for back to back shows on Saturday July 28th and July 29th.  With Pepsi Center being so close and us being one of the closest restaurants to the Pepsi Center it makes sense that we will be seeing you at Freshcraft before you walk over to the concerts.  As mentioned above we have great Happy Hour specials and daily features for you to take advantage of.

We have a few events of our own planned and as always we are the Denver industry leader in Craft Beer focused events and we always have a great time putting these together for you.  The first one is an Ice Cream Social Station 26 Brewing and Eskimo Bros Ice Cream.  Eskimo Bros will be making Nitro Ice Cream on the fly right on our bar  both made with and paired with Station 26 beer, what could be better on a hot summer day!?  This all goes down on Wednesday July 25th from 3-7pm.  The other event we currently have planned is for IPA DAY! What better way to spend the day then with one of the best IPA producing breweries in this glorious state, Odell Brewing Co! Come in and get a first taste of their new seasonal, Cloud Catcher Milkshake IPA. This hazy delight clocks in at 6.8% ABV. Hop-forward with notes of creamsicle and peaches, it delivers a citrusy punch alongside its hazy, velvety texture. Brewery reps will be on hand giving away some great stuff including an Odell IPA river tube! Get Hoppy!
