This Week in Colorado Beer
*Saturday, 1 to 5 p.m.: Bristol Brewing
in Colorado Springs is throwing a Firkin Rendezvous. Roughly 20 Colorado microbreweries will be bringing cask-conditioned ales to tap. Tickets are $25 in advance and $30 at the door.
*Saturday, 2 to 5 p.m. Wynkoop hosts its annual Beerdrinker of the Year

*Saturday, 4 to 7 p.m.: Dying to get to an Avery release party but can't make tonight's soiree? Head up to the Boulder brewery again for the release of its Maharaja double IPA, complete with Indian food. (This one costs $15, however.)

*Thursday, 6 p.m. Rock Bottom restaurants
across the state debut their Fire Chief Ale, which helps to fund firefighter-related charities.
*Friday, 5 p.m. Ska's new Modus Hoperandi makes its debut. For those of you in the Denver area, Falling Rock Taphouse
starts pouring it at this time.
