Best Bets: FlyteCo’s birthday, Film Fest, Nathaniel Rateliff

FlyteCo Brewing turns four

Through Sunday. Denver’s FlyteCo Brewing celebrates its fourth anniversary this weekend with, fittingly, four days of special releases and events. The fun kicks off Thursday, March 2, with live music at the taproom near Tennyson Street (4499 W. 38th Ave., #101), followed by karaoke on Friday, an all-day DJ on Saturday, and a hangover brunch on Sunday.

Each day, FlyteCo will spotlight a new beer, new coffee and new sandwich offering. No tickets are required, except for the hangover brunch ($100), which features four courses — sensing a theme? — each paired with one of the new beer releases. Specialty recipes include a guava milkshake sour ale, a potato beer, a rye IPA and a pale ale.
