Brews News 1-28

As we enter the last week of January and head into the first week of February we remember that the first month of the year was a busy one in the craft beer world. With five days to go until the Super Bowl at least the craft beer community has plenty of events to keep them busy as they eagerly await the big game with anniversaries, and new beer releases. Here is what is going on in the week ahead in craft beer.
One of the best new breweries from 2013 is finally turning 1 and are doing so with a four day party featuring 4 new beer releases. That small brewery tucked away in an alley in the Highlands neighborhood, De Steeg! The festivities will start on Thursday, January 30 and run through Sunday, February 2 featuring a new beer release the first three days and finishing off with a Super Bowl Party. The new beer releases will feature a Biere De Garde, Dubbel, Tripel, and Quad. For those who have not been to this brewery yet this will be a great first time to visit and try some great beers, and enjoy a great time as they celebrate their first of many anniversaries.
New Beer Releases: New beers and firkins will be in abundance again this week, but which ones to try?

-Wednesday, January 29 Copper Kettle Brewing Company will be ending their New Year’s Resolution cask month with a gluten free beer made with rice. This beer will go on tap at 3 and should go quickly like they all have this month.
