This Week in Colorado Beer
It's an exciting week for new beers, and beginning tomorrow I'll be posting daily blurbs about both some of what is listed here and some others that have come out recently.
*New Belgium has released its Lips of Faith Dark Kriek
in bombers. The Lips of Faith series, you may know is made up of experimental beers and has produced such greats as its sour Eric's Ale. This is the first time that a Lips of Faith beer has been bottled and distributed.
*Odell just rolled out its Odell Red Ale
. It's a red like an American red, except that, in classic Odell style, it's got some monster hops and comes in at 6.5% ABV. Will be available through May.
*Just in time for Valentine's Day, Carver Brewing
of Durango is now tapping its Brewer's Reserve Lover's Chocolate Stout. Champagne bottles to go sell for $12.95
*BJ's of Westminster
has just put 30 new beers on tap - and, as one might expect, they're not all from BJ's. Eat a pizookie, then call a cab.
*Thursday: Trinity Brewing
releases its Farmhouse #34, Saison Nocturnum. Coming in at 12% ABV, it's described as the largest spiced beer ever brewed in Colorado Springs. I'll buy that.
*Saturday, noon to 9 p.m.: Bristol Brewing
has an IPA cask tapping. Actually, Bristol has this most every Saturday. So, if you're in Colorado Springs, just make this part of your weekly calendar.
