Denver is growing and so are the events around the Mile High City. Setting up New Year’s Eve to be endless fun and celebration doesn’t have to be a challenge. Whether you are with your family or just out on the town with a few friends, Denver surely has something to offer you this New Year’s Eve.

Where: The Lobby, 2191 Arapahoe St, Denver, CO 80205

For those who truly celebrate Denver and Colorado culture alike, a black tie event may not be what you’re looking for on New Year’s Eve. Maybe jeans, a flannel, and good craft beer are more your style. If that’s the case, Two Parts’ New Beer’s Eve is the New Year’s party for you.

Two Parts’ mission is to create a community through discovery, consumption, and discussion of local experiences and craft products, all while supporting those behind it. This final beer festival of the year includes beer from 17 breweries, a four-course beer pairing dinner, live music from the local rock band Morsel, and much more.

This isn’t just a beer festival. A midnight balloon drop is accompanied by a complimentary beverage, while a charity marketplace is open for those looking to give back–capping things off to truly make this New Beer’s Eve a night to remember.

Cost: Ticket packages start at $50.00 and a $10.00 designated driver can be added to the package to ensure you are fully able to enjoy the night while still being safe. Get your tickets here.
