This Week in Colorado Beer

in Colorado Springs (specifically in Bristol Brewery) releases "Don't Call Me Wit," a summer saison.
*Friday, 6 to 9 p.m.: Great Divide Brewing

*Friday, 6 to 9 p.m.: Avery Brewing
cracks out Quinquepartite, a sour ale that blends beers aged in port, chardonnay, zinfandel and two cabernet sauvignon barrels. It's made only 60 cases of the fifth beer in its barrel-aged series.
*Saturday, 4 to 7 p.m.:
If you've got any liver left after those Friday night tastings, Odell Brewing
is releasing its Deconstruction Golden Ale.
