Brews News 9-24

The season has changed and fall is officially upon us which can only mean one thing and that is that more big beers will be returning. While cold weather is just around the corner there is still plenty to do in Colorado craft beer.
New Breweries:
After much anticipation Epic Brewing is finally ready to open their doors in their new River North home and it all happens on Thursday, September 26. Unfortunately this is a soft opening only available to those invited, but sooner than later their doors will be open to the masses.  
This Saturday, September 28 marks the 1 year anniversary of one of Boulder’s best kept secrets in beer, and that can mean only one thing. Wild Wood’s Brewery is turning 1 and they are celebrating with 12 beers including some new releases and the returns of some fan favorites. They will be bringing back the popular 2012 Barley wine as well as the Tropical Paradise IPA a great IPA with mango and ginger. As far as new beers are concerned they will be releasing an Oktoberfest style lager, as well as a special anniversary ale known as Big Bonfire. This is an imperial version of their flagship Campfire Red and the first 40 people to order one will get to keep they glass for free.
