Beer Calendar: Big Parties at Denver Beer Co., Avery Brewing and Banded Oak

New Crowler labels from Westfax Brewing and the 40 West Art District.

As sales of Crowlers have exploded in brewery taprooms across Colorado in recent years, the breweries themselves have been upping their game when it comes to Crowler artwork, decorating these 32-ounce cans, which can be filled with any beer that a brewery has on tap, with sophisticated artwork. Resolute Brewing in Centennial is introducing new artwork just this week (see below), while Westfax Brewing, located next to Casa Bonita in Lakewood, has teamed up with the brand-new 40 West Arts District for its own creative labels.

The new district launched an ArtLine on June 1, which will include a First Friday program, similar to other First Fridays across the metro area. It will run along the West Colfax Avenue corridor in Denver and Lakewood. As part of the program, Westfax will feature Colorado artist Noelle Phares in the taproom and on its new line of Crowler labels. There will be two new designs that highlight two of Phares’s pieces.

Keep reading for craft-beer events into late June.
