Beers Made By Walking invites brewers to go on nature hikes and make new beers inspired by plants observed on the trail. Each beer is a unique, drinkable portrait of the landscape. We are excited to announce our annual festival will take place at the Denver Museum of Nature and Science on Tuesday, Oct. 4, from 5:30-8:30pm MST. Now in its sixth year, the event showcases more than 30 place-based beers to the countless beer lovers that have gathered in Denver for the Great American Beer Festival.
Over 25 of the beers were made specifically for this event by Colorado breweries that have collaborated with us. Each beer is inspired by landscapes in an area of the brewer’s choosing. Brewers have hiked up 14,000 foot mountains, trekked through lush canyons, camped in national parks, and strolled through community gardens to find inspiration. Additionally, Scratch Brewing (Ava, IL) and Fonta Flora (Morganton, NC) will serve a few specialty offerings from their respective portfolios that include beers with foraged ingredients.
Tickets will be available in early September via the Museum’s Facebook page. Visitors will receive special glassware for the event and unlimited access to the beers until they run out.

Our Mutual Friend
Beers Made By Walking is a program that invites people to step outside and see the place they live in a new light. We invite brewers to take nature walks and make beer inspired by the plants identified on the trail. Since 2011, we have worked with over 100 breweries in Oregon, California, Colorado, North Carolina, and Washington. Our hiking and tasting events act as educational experiences and fundraising programs for environmental organizations in the regions we serve. Please see beersmadebywalking.com for more information.
