The National Western Stock Show celebrates its 110th season in 2016 with a two-week series (January 7 to January 24) of activities and competitions, all in the spirit of the Wild West.
And whether you're attending the Stock Show or not, you can enjoy a taste of the western-themed event at home with a DIY Colorado Campfire Sour, Hyatt Place and Hyatt House Denver/Downtown’s special edition signature cocktail, inspired by the Stock Show and available throughout the month of January. Made with Colorado’s own TINCUP American Whiskey, the drink embraces the centennial state’s outdoorsy side with smoky undertones and a strong finish—a perfect fireside drink to warm up with.
