Tickets go on sale Sunday — Father’s Day (hint, hint) — for the fifth edition of the Pints for Prostrates Rare Beer Tasting. Once again, the event occurs at the same time as the Great American Beer Festival in Denver. More than 30 breweries from across the country will serve beer at the tasting, held from 1-4 p.m. on Oct. 11.
Tickets are $100. Beyond the wide selection of rare beers, often poured by the brewers who made them, each attendee receives a commemorative tasting glass, t-shirt, program and pen, and a three issue trial subscription to All About Beer Magazine. A buffet lunch is included in the ticket price and guests will have the chance to bid in a silent auction that includes a variety of unique beer experiences and collectibles.
The first four Denver Rare Beer Tastings each sold out several weeks in advance.
“Our goal is to bring together America’s best craft breweries in a relaxed format where brewers and beer lovers get the chance to talk and taste a unique collection of beers,” said AABM publisher Daniel Bradford, whose magazine presents the event.
Pints for Prostates is a non-profit charity founded by beer writer and prostate cancer survivor Rick Lyke. All net proceeds from Denver Rare Beer Tasting go towards the awareness mission of Pints for Prostates and help to fund the education and support programs of the Us TOO International Prostate Cancer Education and Support Network, and free prostates cancer screening programs provided by the Prostate Conditions Education Council.
