And in addition to the events below, the GETIT Shuttle will be running a special service from 4 to 9pm tonight between breweries and venues for a fantastic deal:
To help keep the party groove moving right along throughout the evening, GETIT Shuttle will be offering shuttle services between CO Beer Week breweries and event sites. $5.00 per rider gets you a pass for as many rides as you need between spots during shuttle hours. Shuttle riders can also enter a raffle via Facebook/Twitter for a “beer-tastical” mystery prize! Please give a little lead time when you call for a ride so your pilot can keep everyone moving the best he can during the busy night. To order up your ride, call or text GETIT Shuttle at 541-610-6103.
