Tickets for the event are now on sale for $200.  Each attendee receives beer samples, lunch, collectible tasting glass, t-shirt and program. Included in the ticket price guests will have the chance to meet the men and women who brewed the rare beers being served, be entered in a drawing to win an amazing beer trip, bid in an exciting silent auction that includes a variety of unique beer experiences and collectibles, and participate in the Brewers Health Initiative, a free men’s health screening.

“The Denver Rare Beer Tasting is a special experience for beer fans and the brewers,” said Lyke. “This event is about the beer, the people and the cause – men’s health.”

The event features a single admission format with a four-hour session for all ticket buyers. The number of available tickets has been reduced, with just 600 available to the public. Breweries will be pouring on three floors of the McNichols Civic Center Building at 144 W. Colfax Ave. Each of these moves are designed to create less crowding and more space for people to relax while sampling the beers. All attendees must present proof of being fully vaccinated against COVID or a negative test result within 48 hours of the event.

Pints for Prostates is a 501(c)3 non-profit charity and all net proceeds from Denver Rare Beer Tasting go towards the group’s awareness mission, education and support programs, and free prostate cancer screening programs.
