Brews News Thanksgiving Week

Hard to believe that this is the last week of November, and Thanksgiving as well. Soon the Holiday season will be in full swing, but for now let’s enjoy the week ahead. As our families fly in to visit, and we want to perfect beverage for our turkey there is still a lot to do in the craft beer world this week in anticipation of the holiday, and in the days that follow.
-After the chaos of the holiday has settled down head over to Dry Dock Brewing on Saturday, November 30 for their in house brew contest, also known as the 5th Annual Ho Ho Ho Slapdown. This annual event will feature 6 teams of 3 brewers and runs from 11-5. It is also ugly sweater day at the brewery so find the most ugly sweater you own and try to outdo the staff. This is a great, fun event every year and should not be missed.
-To treat yourself at the end of the weekend how about breakfast out? Sunday, December 1 Copper Kettle Brewing Company will be hosting their 2nd Annual Beer and Breakfast. There are 2 different times you can attend, and food will be cooked by El Toro the Tot along with 3 different beers. In addition to great food and great beer guests will be allowed to purchase bottles of Snowed In prior to anybody else! Tickets are only $30 per person, and this will be a great event.
The day after Thanksgiving is usually a day spent shopping, relaxing, and eating leftovers. But how about instead you enjoy the leftovers as a potluck, enjoy some great craft beer, and congratulate a brewery by celebrating their first anniversary with them? In Wheatridge Brewery Rickoli will be celebrating their first anniversary on Black Friday. In addition to the leftover potluck there will be special beer releases throughout the day. This is a great brewery, and will be a great event to congratulate him, and taste many of his delicious offerings.
New Beer Releases:
Both before and after the holiday breweries all across the state will be releasing new beers throughout the week.
-Wednesday, November 27 will be the last Wednesday of “Be Thankful” month at Copper Kettle Brewing Company, and they will finish off with a firkin of a Fresh Cranberry Witbier. Beer gets tapped at 3 and is sure to go quick.
-Wednesday, November 27 Wild Woods Brewery in Boulder is releasing 2 beers just in time for Thanksgiving. They will be rereleasing their Butternut Brown only this time a barrel aged version. In addition they will also be releasing a Pistachio Cream Ale. Both beers will be available starting at 4.
-Friday, November 29 Yak and Yeti in Arvada will be releasing Disgruntled Pumpkin Ale. This popular beer is looked forward to every year so should go quickly.
-Friday, November 29 Lone Tree Brewing Company will be releasing their 4th beer this month, this time a Chili Beer. In addition starting at 1 they will be offering small tours and a Q & A session with their head brewer Jason. This will be a great chance to have a unique beer and talk to the head brewer, so arrive early this day.
