Denver fans packed in the popular downtown bar Brooklyn's to enjoy Breckenridge Brewery's annual Denver Comic Con beer release party last night; June 2, 2017. People were lined up over an hour before the doors opened for their shot at snagging one of the limited Denver Comic Con collector's pint glasses designed by Noah Eisenman. The cosplay was in full force with some fabulous "Guardians of the Galaxy" outfits, two Wonder Women, two Wolverines, a Hawkeye and so much more. Local fan Ana MacDonell shared how much she loved the new Breckenridge brew I am Brewt!, as did everyone else. The bartenders had quite a time keeping the taps flowing. Along with the tasty beer and food, there was trivia, music and dancing. This annual party is a very popular warm-up party to get ready for Denver Comic Con.
