Pints for Prostates is partnering with the Colorado Brewers Guild (CBG) to bring back one of Denver’s premier craft beer tasting events. Previously a signature event during Great American Beer Festival® (GABF) week, the 13th Annual Denver Rare Beer Tasting will take place during the Craft Brewers Conference® on Thursday, Sept. 9 from 1-5 p.m. at McNichols Civic Center Building.
Denver Rare Beer Tasting tickets are $125, and are on sale here! Entry to the Denver Rare Beer Tasting includes beer samples, individually wrapped lunch, limited edition tasting glass, and a pen. In addition to the tasting, there will be an online silent auction featuring unique beer experiences and collectibles. As part of the event, a free men’s health screening will be hosted outside the McNichols Civic Center Building from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. The Prostate Conditions Education Council will provide a free blood screening that takes less than five minutes to complete and screens for several common men’s health issues. This portion of the event is free to everyone; a Denver Rare Beer Tasting ticket is not needed.
As a 501(c)3 non-profit founded with men’s health at the core of its mission, Pints for Prostates takes the safety of attendees, volunteers, and brewers very seriously. For this reason, everyone attending the Denver Rare Beer Tasting will be required to show proof of a COVID-19 vaccination or a negative test within 48 hours of the event to be admitted. This event will be at reduced capacity to allow for social distancing. The Beer Lovers Silent Auction will shift to an online format and safety precautions will be observed when it comes to the handling of glassware and pouring beer.

Pints for Prostates is a 501(c)3 non-profit charity that reaches men through the universal language of beer to encourage them to take charge of their health. The group was founded by prostate cancer survivor and beer writer Rick Lyke in 2008. The grassroots effort raises awareness among men about the importance of regular men’s health screenings by making appearances at beer festivals, social networking, and pro bono advertising. According to the National Institutes of Health, during 2021 an estimated 248,530 new prostate cancer cases will be diagnosed in the U.S. More information is available at www.pintsforprostates.org.
