The Mountain Sun may be home, but if you’re headed for Denver, its sibling, The Vine Street Pub, will take care of you, too.

Did you know that Boulder’s Mountain Sun and Southern Sun have a sister in Denver?

(She could be a brother. We haven’t looked up the kilt.)

The Vine Street Pub, 1700 Vine St., Denver, is hosting Belgian Beer Month through the end of the month.

There will be classes, tappings and neat stuff — all involving beer birthed by those those glorious Belgians who crafted the best beer ever.

Do you know what a saison is?

You wouldn’t. (Fret not. I recently learned.)

It’s a pale ale that was brewed seasonally (saison = season, neat) in farmhouses in Belgium.

Beer Advocate told me the saison was an endangered ale — up until recently.

Bandwagon ahead. Now it’s like a mustache. Or neon high-tops. Or an Audi. Or a superhero movie. Something like that.

On top of events all month, Saturday is the Vine Street Pub Block Party and (first-ever) Colorado Brewery Olympics .

(Brewery Olympics? Splendid.)

Dave Johnston from Yonder Mountain String Band and Drew Emmitt from Leftover Salmon will play a free show. Put on those Belgian pants and go look up Vine Street’s kilt.

Info: Saturday 1-9 p.m.; free; 303-338-2337; facebook.com/mountainsunpub.

It’s electric

You can’t resist it. It’s electric. Boogie, woogie, woogie.

Did you miss the Electric Daisy Carnival?

Condolences.

The party rolled through Denver in June. It was like a rave snorting another rave, then chugging a carnival, with a rave on top.

Now you can see the cheeky shenanigans on film. The feature-length “Electric Daisy Carnival Experience” is showing only one night — tonight at 9 p.m. at the Mayan Theater, 110 Broadway, Denver.

The film features interviews with top artists and performances.

The DVD will be released Nov. 9, but go see it tonight. It’s more colorful on the big screen.

Info: Tonight at 9; $7.50-$10.50; landmarktheatres.com.

That dude is huge

Holy shit, it’s a dinosaur.

The Denver Museum of Nature & Science, 2001 Colorado Blvd., Denver, has a new exhibit: T. Rex Encounter.

Hold me.

It looks like the museum took a life-sized plastic(ish?) prehistoric homie and fed him a robot. That’s a large toy.

So, this is pretty damn awesome: The museum used advanced robotics and face recognition technology to have the T. rex (as well as raptors and Triceratops) react to your every move.

(Wear drawers, he’ll look up your kilt.)

Info: Exhibit starts Friday and runs through Jan. 8; dmns.org; 303-370-6000; $6-$12.
