||After you visit the Becoming Van Gogh exhibit at the Denver Art Museum (DAM), stop by the Rackhouse Pub to sample some DAM Gogh de Garde beer. A traditional French farmhouse ale--coppery blonde with a hint of anise. This brewski is a collaboration between the Dillon Dam Brewery and the Denver Art Museum.
Brewmaster Cory Forster (who created this traditional ale) speculates that while Van Gogh traveled the French countryside documenting peasants he probably quaffed his share of biere de garde. Learn more about this collaboration on Dillon Dam’s website.
Aside from the Dillon Dam Brewery's taproom, the Rackhouse Pub in Denver is the only other spot where you can drink a DAM Gogh beer.
About Becoming Van Gogh: The Denver Art Museum has put together a retrospective on Vincent Van Gogh, and this particular showing of his work will only be seen in Denver. It's your basic one-city tour. And it is good to know that Van Gogh was basically a nobody while he was alive (he sold just one painting in his lifetime), but within 30 years of his death he became one of the most influential painters of the 19th century. Go figure. And, while you're figuring, have a DAM beer.
