This Week in Colorado Beer
A quick edition for the beer drinker on the go . . .
Saturday and Sunday, 1-6 p.m.: Manitou Craft Lager Festival
. One of the best beer festivals in Colorado expands to two days and relocates to roomier Memorial Park in Manitou Springs. Tickets are $35 at the door - but they only take cash. Brewers from more than 20 states will be on hand, and there will even be daily beer education talks.
*The Colorado State Fair is like a festival, but really big. And the state fair accepts entries from both commercial brewers
. But the entries are due on Aug. 15, so if you've got something good that's done or about to be done, you may want to think about submitting it.
*Trinity Brewing of Colorado Springs on Thursday released Libidinous, an unhopped lager brewed with juniper berries, chai and saffron. It is available at the brewery
or at the Manitou Craft Lager Festival.
Thursday, 5-7 p.m.: Falling Rock Taphouse
in Denver is pouring Russian River Temptation, a blonde ale aged in French oak barrels with brettanomyces.
*Great Divide Brewery
in downtown Denver has extended its tap room hours until 10 p.m. from Wednesday through Saturday. Now, I'll never get home again.
