Brews News 9-10-13

We are well into September and the weather is changing along with the leaves. Before long we will be into Winter and all the big beers will be coming out. But for right now the weather is still warm and there is still plenty going on the Colorado Craft Beer.
This week there are 2 great festivals worth attending in Colorado.
-For those staying in the Denver area there is the annual Brew at the Zoo. $75 will get you a great night of appetizers from pubs around Denver as well as unlimited samples from 40 breweries from all around Colorado and some around the U.S. Of course the animals will all be on display and new proceeds will go to benefit THE Denver Zoo’s Red Apple Fund for Lifelong Learning a program that helped their education program.
-While it may be a longer drive this weekend is also the annual 3 day event Telluride Blues and Brews. With some 3 day, Friday, and Sunday passes still available this is a great event featuring a great amount of breweries not often seen in Denver. Combine that with great food and music, this is one of the best events of the year.
-Friday night September 13 at the Rackhouse Pub in Denver with Bristol Brewing Pint Night. Brewery representatives from the Colorado Springs brewery will be on hand to talk to guests and give away merchandise. So enjoy a Laughing Lab, Mass Transit, or whatever your flavor of Bristol is and talk to the guys who help make them possible.
-Saturday, September 14 will mark the Denver Beerathon which will take guests to 26 bars for 26 craft beers throughout the Denver area. This will feature several great areas including Uptown, LoHi, LoDo, the Ballpark, and RiNo area. Tickets are $55 and the course map can be found at http://denverbeerathon.com/course
-Also on Saturday by the Platte River Denver Beer Company will be hosting the Stout and Oyster Fest. $25 will get you 2 pints of beer as well as a dozen oysters from the east coast, west coast, and even Rocky Mountain Oysters for those daring enough.
-Outside of Denver in the suburbs Lone Tree Brewing will be participating in BrewAsanas! At the tap room for $20 enjoy an hour of yoga and delicious Lone Tree Brewing Company Beer.
New Beer Releases:
Lots of great new beer releases this week and it all starts on Wednesday.
-In remembrance of 9-11 Lone Tree Brewing Company will be donating a dollar of every pint to the Captain Jason Dahl Scholarship Fund and will also be re-releasing their Peachtree Pale Ale in what will become a semi permanent beer on their tap list. Members of the scholarship fund will be in the tap room throughout the day to answer any question.
-River North Brewery has a great beer on tap for Wayward Wednesday as they will be tapping their Avarice Belgian Imperial Stout but as a milk stout. An already great beer, this sounds like it will be absolutely amazing.
-Fresh Hop month continues at Copper Kettle Brewing Company with 2 different Fresh Hop beers this week. Starting Wednesday their weekly cask will be the Copper Hopper with fresh Cascade hops. This leads into Saturday where they will bring back the Hoppa which features fresh Cascade and Chinook hops from Voss Farms in Arvada, Colorado.
-Our Mutual Friend has also brewed a fresh hop and it should be ready for consumption Saturday, September 14.
-Last our favorite Farmhouse brewery Hall Brewing Company in Parker, Colorado has recently bottled and released a Juicy Peach Blonde Ale. Light and refreshing, a great beer to get us through the remaining hot days we have left.
Coming Soon!:
As if this week does not have enough there is always more to look forward to in the Colorado craft beer scene.
-As the fresh hop beers start to release in abundance there are two more to look forward to from some of Colorado’s more iconic breweries. Tommyknocker and Great Divide have both brewed theirs and they should be released in late September/early October.
-TRVE Brewing in Denver has recently done a collaboration with Ninkasi Brewing out of Eugene, Oregon and the beer of choice was a IPA with El Dorado and Mosaic hops. We will keep you up to date on that future release.
No anniversaries or new brewery openings to report this week but with so much going on there should not be a problem keeping those pint glasses full and thirsts quenched. Cheers to the week ahead!
