Brews News 11-19

Can you believe that we are already in the second half of November? With each passing week the weather is getting colder, the days shorter, but one thing that keeps us busy is the craft beer scene in Colorado. As we head into another week we look at another full calendar of great events, new beer releases, and even a festival to keep our pint glasses full and our thirsts quenched.
Even after the chaos of the GABF there are still festivals going on, and on Friday, November 22 the first annual Holiday Beer Bash will be going down at Mile High Station. This event sponsored by American Craft Beer Radio costs $35 from 6-9 for general admission and access to beers from over 30 breweries, and food samples from six local chefs. There are several great Colorado breweries participating including Dry Dock, Copper Kettle, Ska, Elevation, Crooked Stave, plus more from around the country. Tickets are available through Eventbrite and are still available for both VIP and General Admission.
Some great events going on this week pairing food and beer in both savory and sweet forms.
-Wednesday, November 20 in Parker, Colorado Lil’ Riccis will be hosting Pizza and Pints partnering with Parker brewery Hall. Event runs from 4-7 and is a great chance to not only try some great beers in Hall but also meet brewer Aubrey Hall himself, and enjoy some New York style pizza in the process.
-Thursday, November 21 Denver Beer Co. is allowing guests to not only indulge in their sweet tooth, but also prepare for Thanksgiving in the process by hosting Pies and Beer. Starting at 6:00 $12 will get you 3 samples of pie from Maple Street Pie Company along with 3 samples of Denver Beer Co. beer, and you can pick your favorite pairing, and pre-order it for the upcoming holiday.
New Beer Releases:
Not a lot of new beer releases this week, but always something new and exciting around the state.
-Wednesday, November 20 Bristol Brewing will tap their newest community ale, the Give! Black Lager. This light sessionable lager has a subtle roasted flavor, and 100% of the profits will be donated to the Give! 2013 campaign and the 59 nonprofit organizations that are a part of this years class.
-Wednesday, November 20 Copper Kettle Brewing Company will be continuing their month long firkins of “Be Thankful.” This week we move in a dessert direction with the tapping of their Bourbon Pecan Brown. Beer will be available starting at 3, and sounds delicious.
-Thursday, November 21 Saint Patrick’s Brewing will be releasing El Draque Lager, inspired by spiced rum. This beer has 9 different herbs and spices and has been aged on French Oak. This will be available in tasters, and bombers to go.
-Friday, November 22 Lone Tree Brewing has not 1 but 2 new beers being tapped for the weekend. For the hop heads out there they will have a Triple IPA available, and for fans of the dark beers they will be tapping a Coffee Stout. Both beers will be available at noon.
-Saturday, November 23 Copper Kettle Brewing Company will be releasing a new lager perfect for the cooler weather. Their Bock Lager will be hitting the tap lines to join a lineup of great malty beers perfect for the season, beer will be available at noon.
-Sunday, November 24 TRVE in Denver will be releasing their second bottled beer. Starting at 1:30 Eastern Candle will be available for purchase. This pale wheat ale made with Brett has been aged in white wine barrels and certainly sounds interesting and refreshing. Quantities are limited with less than 40 cases available so arrive early to get your hands on this exclusive bottle release.
Other News:
-Hall Brewing began work on their tap room so it is only a matter of time before there is a second microbrewery in Parker we can visit.
-One of Denver’s newest breweries in the works Fermaentra signed a lease and officially have an address. They will be in the DU area at 1715 E. Evans Ave in Denver. This will be a great addition to this neighborhood and hopefully they will be pouring before we know it.
