The West Side Brewery Bike Loop returns Saturday, Aug. 25, with a “College Colors Ride,”, noon to 6 p.m.

Participants can pedal to WestFax Brewing Company (6733 W. Colfax Ave., Lakewood), Joyride Brewing Company (2501 Sheridan Blvd., Edgewater), Hogshead Brewery (4460 W. 29th Ave., Denver) and Seedstock Brewery (3610 W. Colfax Ave., Denver) on the last Saturday of each month for $1 off a pint (or smaller glass) per brewery, a free beer, and possible giveaways.

The 6.7-mile route follows bike lanes, residential streets and the east edge of Sloans Lake in a loop connecting the four breweries. For a route map, visit

The beer-and-bike social event was inaugurated this spring, with the first, April 28 outing attracting about a 100 riders, per WestFax Brewing’s Facebook page. Held the last Saturday of each month through September, with the final ride of the season on Sept. 29.

To join in the ride, pick up a punch card the Saturday-of at any of the four participating breweries, then bike to each brewery and get the card punched for $1 off a pint at each taproom. A completed punch card can be redeemed for a free beer at any of the breweries at a later date.

Cyclists are asked that their bike be in safe working condition, with working lights and reflectors, and to wear a helmet.
