Denver events Aug. 19-23: Denver Beer bash, shop and sip and more things to do

Denver Beer Co.’s birthday bash

Saturday. The esteemed Denver Beer Co. is turning 10 years old and inviting beer drinkers to its birthday party this weekend at the Highland taproom. Stop by from noon to 9 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 21, to enjoy live music, food truck grub, limited-edition merch and, of course, some special releases. The brewery’s 10th anniversary brew is an imperial porter with raspberries and graham crackers, an ode to DBC staples Princess Yum Yum and Graham Cracker Porter, which will be sold in bombers. The party is free to attend and, yes, there will be cake. 1695 Platte St. denverbeerco.com — Tiney Ricciardi

Fair pay drives U.S. Women’s soccer doc

Fans of soccer stars Megan Rapinoe, Alex Morgan and Lindsey Horan will find it worthwhile to visit Colorado Springs this weekend to see “LFG,” a documentary film on the U.S. Women’s National Team’s pay discrimination dispute with the U.S. Soccer Federation.

“LFG,” an acronym for “Let’s (Expletive) Go,” will be shown as part of the Rocky Mountain Women’s Film summer drive-in series. Lawyers for players on the Women’s National Team filed suit against USSF in 2019, claiming pay discrimination. A California judge dismissed the suit in May 2020, but the players filed an appeal last month while the team was playing in the Tokyo Olympics.

Screenings take place at the former Gazette Building just east of downtown Colorado Springs on Friday and Saturday, Aug. 20-21, with the parking lot opening at 7 p.m. and the film starting at 8 p.m. $30 per car, free popcorn. Tailgating is encouraged. 704 E. Colorado Ave. in Colorado Springs. rmwfilm.org — John Meyer

Survive this spooky beer release

Saturday. The Colorado Festival of Horror returns Sept. 10-12, and to get fans hyped, organizers have partnered with Longmont’s Outworld Brewing to release a specialty beer for the occasion. The sci-fi-inspired drinkery will debut a blood orange witbier called Elixir Immortus at a launch party that includes a meet and greet with artist Xander Smith, who not only designed the beer’s artwork but also has worked on four seasons of “American Horror Story,” among other Hollywood productions.

The launch party, which is free to attend, runs 4 to 9 p.m. at the Outworld brewery on Saturday, Aug. 21. Limited edition glassware and beer art prints will be available for purchase. 1725 Vista View Drive in Longmont. outworldbrewing.com — Tiney Ricciardi

Attn: Hiking noobs

Tuesday. One year ago, the pandemic brought lots of people to Colorado trails who lacked basic knowledge of backcountry safety. If that includes you — or maybe you just need a refresher — the Colorado Mountain Club is offering an “Intro to Hiking Safety Seminar” on Tuesday, Aug. 24, covering animal encounters, forest fires, dangerous weather, trip planning, what to pack, basic navigation, nutrition, hydration and other vital topics.

The one-night session will take place in the Foss Auditorium at the American Mountaineering Center in Golden from 6:30 to 9 p.m. Cost is $10 for CMC members, $15 for non-members. cmc.org — John Meyer
