WHAT: Denver’s Berkeley neighborhood gets fresh this fall season with Fresh-tober Fest hosted by The Empourium Brewing Company and accompanied by Call to Arms Brewing Company, The Grateful Gnome Sandwich Shoppe & Brewery, De Steeg Brewing and FlyteCo Brewing!

The Empourium’s fresh hop beer is Now & Forever, a 6.2% ABV IPA with seven pounds per barrel of fresh hops. It’s extra fresh and not so bitter.

Fresh-tober Fest is The Empourium’s alternative for the traditional Oktoberfest celebration— in this rendition each brewery will feature their own fresh hop beer creations! Little Red’s Kitchen will sling German-themed eats and three local bands will perform live throughout the day. Rose Finn will from 1 to 3pm, The Blowholes from 3:30 to 5:30pm, and Show and Tell from 6 to 8pm. Bring your dancing shoes! 

This festival will benefit the St. Francis Center, a refuge for men and women who are homeless in the metro Denver area. Fresh-toberfest will include a jean drive for St. Francis Center. Guests are encouraged to bring a new or gently used pair of jeans to donate.  beer and food course
