Join us at the Denver X-ray Conference off-site event: A Taste of Colorado Tour

Join ICDD on Thursday evening, August 9, for an authentic “taste” of Colorado as we tour the Stranahan’s Colorado Whiskey Distillery and enjoy a beer tasting at the Rackhouse Pub. Guests will depart the Denver Marriott Tech Center at 6:00 pm by motor coach. Once at Stranahan’s we will tour Colorado’s first whiskey distillery, which opened in 2004, and learn about the production process. And of course, no tour could be complete without sampling the finished product!

Then, just next door, is the Rackhouse Pub, home to draft beers native to Colorado. Guests will have a chance to enjoy a flight of beers and dinner, which will include a pizza buffet served in the Whiskey Lounge.

Tickets to our off-site event are $60.00 per person, and include round-trip transportation, dinner, a tour of the distillery, and beer tasting. The ticket sale for this event has ended. Tickets will not be sold at the conference or at the event. If you did purchase a ticket, please bring your confirmation with you the night of the event.

The bus will begin loading at 5:45 pm, and leave promptly at 6:00 pm from the Denver Marriott Tech Center. The bus will be stationed at the North entrance of the hotel, which is located near the Tower elevators.
