This Week in Colorado Beer
Today, 5 to 8 p.m.: Ska Brewing in Durango hosts the event, which is a perfect chance to get free beer and a tour while you're paying to become an American Homebrewers Association member or to just go and drink for free if you're already a member.
Saturday and Sunday, noon to 6 p.m.: The Keystone Blues and Brews Festival offers 30 breweries for 30 bucks at the River Run Events Plaza.
Sunday, 1 to 5 p.m.: The 2nd Annual Great Boulder Beer Festival celebrates eight Boulder County breweries at the Millennium Harvest House. I wish I knew the price, but I don't.
Sunday, noon to 6 p.m.: Avery Anniversary Party, at the brewery in Boulder. This is always a beautiful thing. Twenty bucks gets you in and another $20 gives you access to a mid-afternoon vertical tasting.
Today, 4 to 7 p.m.: Fort Collins Brewery releases its 1900 Amber, but not until after you've partied like it's 1899.
Today, 5 p.m.: Falling Rock Taphouse in Denver rolls out Russian River Publication, a britt-singed creation of five of the country's best ale houses (including Falling Rock) and the maestros at Russian River. Each bar gets only eight kegs.
Thursday, 6 p.m.: Rock Bottom Westminster taps a Bottoms Up Kolsch, which will feel more appropriate in the weather we were having last week as opposed to this week.
