Brews News 10-15

Great American Beer Fest is officially behind us for another year, and as the festival season winds down we look forward to enjoying the best of Colorado craft beer from the tap room, and at local bars throughout the great state. Even though there are not any festivals this week there is still a lot going on in craft beer.
New Beer Releases
This week brings a great mix of new beer releases, and seasonal beers that we often look forward to and it starts on
-Wednesday, October 16 at Bristol Brewing in Colorado Springs. It is that time when Venetucci Pumpkin Ale makes its return to the tap room. This family farm provided pumpkins to kids for over 6 decades and now Bristol returns all the profits from this beer to keep the farm running. A great beer for a great cause.
-Also on Wednesday the Dead Styles month continues at Copper Kettle Brewing Company with the tapping of a Gratzer. This is a German Smoked Wheat and will be available on cask, so arrive early and try this unique beer,
-Slightly north in Lafayette on Wednesday Odd 13 will be releasing a small batch beer they are calling Hoppy Stout. There will be 2 varietals so a vertical pairing is in the works to sample both these brews.
-Friday, October 18 Boulder Beer Company will be releasing one of their classical seasonal beers. Never Summer is making its return for the season and will be available at the tap room.
Even though the festival season is winding down there are still great beer related events going on all week.
-Wednesday, October 16 at Casselman’s Bar and Venue there will be the Save the Ales event. $30 will get you unlimited tastings and money will go to Colorado Air Protection to help preserve the necessary ingredients to brew beer. Event is on 2620 Walnut in Denver.
-For the Fresh Hop fan on Saturday there is a Fresh Hop Celebration that will be held at the Providence Tavern in Edgewater. Tickets can be purchased for $20 ahead of time at freshhopcelebration.com or $25 at the door and include a tasting glass and unlimited samples.
-Saturday, October 19 there is a second Fresh Hop Festival, this one in Denver at the Falling Rock Tap House. Tickets are $25 ahead of time and can be purchased at http://events.imbibedenver.com/products/fresh-hop-festival or are $30 at the door and include unlimited tastings from breweries such as Dry Dock, Great Divide, Crooked Stave, and many more.
One anniversary, and the beginning of a weeklong anniversary celebration all begin on Sunday, October 20.
-The first anniversary this week is not a brewery but instead the Colorado Cider Company. Tehir tasting room is turning 1 and on Sunday join them from 1-5 to raise a glass and enjoy some of the best cider you will find anywhere.
-Also on Sunday Arvada Beer Company will begin the week long festivity celebrating their 2nd Anniversary. All the beers served this week are going to be big and barrel aged, and as a tease they will be releasing 3 new beers on Friday for guests to try. They include the return of the popular Poolhall Porter, and Pumpkin Ale, plus the release of their new Vanilla Porter. As the beers are announced for the anniversary they will be made available.
Even as the year comes to an end breweries are still going above and beyond, and this week is no exception with an abundance of great beer to try to get us through the week and into the weekend. Cheers!
