Comic-Can Release Party - Friday, January 4th
How does Ska Brewing remain a favorite among Durango locals and visitors? Well for one, they combine two things every Durango local loves, beer and Snowdown. That right, it’s officially time for the 2019 Snowdown Beer release! Last year, Ska treated us to a pear flavored beverage decorated in a formal black-tie can. Join ska and other fellow beer lovers to experience this year’s Snowdown release: Comic-Can. This excelsior-style amber lager will be 2 for $5 after 5pm at Ska Brewing HQ. There will be discounts by the can, lots of delicious food, and fun! All of which are ingredients for a great release party to get you in the Snowdown spirit. This event is great for those who love Snowdown traditions, and are itching for the Comic-Con-themed party to begin.
