    Hey, so I'm heading to denver for a few days on the 27th. my question is what brews that are out of my distro should I be looking to scoop up. I'm gonna go hard with the deschutes stuff and I'm curious if I can expect any of their big beers (Abyss, Dissident) on the shelves? Also I hear crooked stave is sweet. What should I look for from them. I get Oskar Blues, and Great Divide so I'm not worried about those. anything I should avoid or seek out? Thanks

    No big Deschutes beers on the shelf that I know of.

    I would stock up on Russian River, Firestone Walker, Crooked Stave IMHO. Sucaba will likely be on shelves still when you get here. La Folie if you don't get that will surely be on the shelves too.

    Elevation beers are good as well as Funkwerks saisons. ^what he said too.

    Damnation + whatever the most recent release is. I think there's still Supplication & Consecration.

    You won't see Pliny/Blind Pig in bottles though, only the golden ales & sours.

    You should be able to taste Pliny the Elder at Falling Rock Tap House while you're here though. Pliny the Younger will be on tap on the 28th IIRC at Cheeky Monk, 6:30pm
