Out on The Town: Inaugural Sunnyside Grill Off
It was July 4th weekend, but I didn't have July 3rd off. Ugh! Fortunately, I was able to work a half day and head of to Factotum Brewhouse for their inaugural Sunnyside Grill-Off!!! Jax and I have previously attended an event at Factotum and had a blast! I've been wanting to return sans dog, so this was a great opportunity.
Each contender had to prepare a barbeque dish made with one of the beers on Factotum's roster. This lead to some creative combinations for dishes--all which were incredible.
We were each given one blue poker chip and one white poker chip in order to vote for our favorites. My favorite dish was the Citra Blonde Sriracha chicken wings (from Carl Rose). The wings had a hint of spice that made them quite unique, likely due to the Citra Blonde beer.
"But Apryl, you don't like beer." Since moving to Denver, I've been proven wrong. There is more to life than Bud Light in college (haha). During the grill off, I enjoyed their small batch Belgium Blonde and Tart Pale Cherry. They were both amazing and very flavorful!
I had a great time hanging out at Factotum. The staff were all incredibly welcoming and informative and their beer is excellent! They also host a number of other events, such as euchre and trivia. ALSO, if you want to grill out, they have grills available there.
