This Week in Colorado Beer
OK, seriously that was the last time I go away for weeks on end. I mean it. Let's drink some good beer. And I've got a lot to say in the coming days and weeks about new beers, beer events and even beer books . . .
*Tuesday, 5 to 9 p.m.: Bristol Brewing
taps its fifth-edition Grand Cru. I personally believe that no one in the state of Colorado does sour and slightly sour beers better across the spectrum than the boys from Colorado Springs. Here's a chance to test that theory.
*Thursday: Dying for a new Rock Bottom beer? Then take your pick. The Downtown Denver
location will be breaking out its Catcher in the Rye. Meanwhile, the Orchard Town Center
facility rolls out its Anniversary ESB. Wait, are anniversaries supposed to be bitter?
Beer and food pairings
*Tuesday, 5 p.m: Great Divide
breaks out its monthly allotment of non-government cheese, this time with five pairings from St. Killian's Cheese Shop (which is located in the Highlands, not in a Coors brewery). Ten dollars gets in you in.
*Wednesday, 6:30 p.m.: Wynkoop hosts an April Fool's Day beer dinner
in honor of Dr. Suess. I haven't found details about the $35 menu, but let's assume Lorax lasagna is not on it. Oh, the places your tastebuds will go!
*Thursday, 6:30 p.m.: Avery is pairing its beers not just with Scotch food but with a selection of Scotch brews as well. The event is $35 and is at the Scotch Corner Pub in Boulder. No kilts necessary. Here's the menu
This one may be sort of a tease . . .
*Friday, 6:30 to 9:30 p.m.: New Belgium Brewing hosts a membership rally for the American Homebrewers Association. I'd go on about how cool this events are, but unfortunately, the website says it's already RSVP'd out
. So, if you were smart and thought ahead (unlike some of us), hoist a La Folie for the rest of us. Oh, and tell them to let more people in.
