(DENVER, CO)— With gratitude and appreciation, Our Mutual Friend Brewing(OMF) announces their 9th Annual Gratitude Party on Saturday, October 1 at the brewery (2810 Larimer St, Denver, CO 80205) from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. The festivities will include live spinning tunes from multiple DJs, specialty releases, and super collectible Gratitude Party bundles available for purchase.
Our Mutual Friend (hint: the mutual friend is beer) hosts Gratitude every year during the Saturday before the Great American Beer Festival (GABF). This celebration is a token of OMF’s appreciation for the craft beer industry and its beer-loving community.
“We started Gratitude as a way to show our appreciation for everyone who has supported us the nearly decade we have been open. There has been an incredible amount of customers, friends, family, and collaborators that have been integral in making us who we are,” says OMF Managing Partner and Co-Owner Brandon Proff. “I can’t think of a better way to celebrate than releasing special beers and taking over the parking lot for a big party.”
The Gratitude soiree will include the following specialty releases, including a few familiar favorites coming back for the big party:
- New beer: Gratitude Nine– Lingonberry Saison, a beautiful rosé tinted Saison with light acidity and refreshing, jammy, berry, and cranberry flavor.
