This Week in Colorado Beer

Special events
*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 finals, in which a panel of judges grill three finalists from across the country to see who deserves the prestigious title. Venzke Weizen, a smoked dunkel named for last year's winner, will be served during the event.

New tappings
*Tonight, 5 to 8 p.m.: Avery releases Brabant, a barrel-aged stout with heavy emphasis on the bourbon influence. The release party is free and head brewer/legend Adam Avery will be signing bottles for people who buy them.
*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.)
*Tonight: Trinity Brewing in Colorado Springs cracks out its Chi Belgian Golden.
*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.
