So I got up early (for a Saturday) today to accompany Ted and Jon to a “scratch and dent” beer sale at Western Distributing in Commerce City. Doors open at 8:00 for four hours every Saturday. We arrived there right at 7:00, and there were already more than 100 people in line in front of us. They are a distributor for Miller and other sundry brands. Domestics are $10 per case and imports were $15 per case. I went mostly on a reconnaissance mission — just to see what the deal was. I came out with a case of Fosters, a case of Newcastle Brown Ale, and a case of Boddington’s Pub Ale. I’ve not had any of the latter two, and I’m hoping to be pleasantly surprised. For the return trip (whenever that might be) I think I’ll focus on Sam Adams for $10 a case.
