The season’s wrapping up for Jefferson County Public Library’s new alternative take on the traditional book groups. BYOB(ook) Group is a monthly, themed book group meeting at Westfax Brewing Company, 6733 W. Colfax Ave., in Lakewood, on the second Wednesday of the month from 6:30 to 8 p.m., and a second group at Wheat Ridge’s Colorado Plus Brew Pub, 6995 W. 38th Ave., on the second Monday.

People come prepared to talk about books that fall into the given theme in a casual setting and enjoy happy-hour prices, then leave with book recommendations for the rest of their fall reading.

The final date and theme at WestFax is Dec. 12, a book with a cover you hate.

The Wheat Ridge group’s final date and theme is a book of 21st-century poetry, Dec. 10.
