Brews News 2-11

February is moving right along and this week we find ourselves in the middle of watching the Olympics and hoping the weather will stay above 0 for this week. Let’s hope it does because this is a very busy week in craft beer full of new beer releases, events, and anniversaries. Here is what to look forward to in the week ahead.
New Brewery!
Tuesday, February 11 the newest brewery in Denver will open their doors, Lowdown Brewery and Kitchen. This new brewery located on the corner of 8th and Lincoln brings together great craft beer from award winning brewers as well as great seasonal food offerings. For their opening they will have eight beers on tap: Porch Pounding Pilz a Pilsner, Lowdown White Ale a Belgian Wheat, Selfish a Pale Ale, Lowdown IPA, The Boxer a India Red Ale, Lonely Sheep a Scottish Style Export, Black Bessie a Milk Stout that will be available on nitro as well, and a Belgian Tripel. This is sure to be a great addition to the Denver beer scene so make sure to stop by at some point this week to say hi and taste their offerings.
This weekend from Friday, February 14 to Sunday, February 16 River North Brewery in Denver will be turning 2, and celebrating over 3 days. This is all highlighted by the release of their new Anniversary Ale which this year is a Nelson Dry Hopped Belgian Golden Strong Ale. That will be available on Friday along with their 1 Anniversary Ale, remember the great Russian Imperial Stout? Saturday they will be releasing a rotation of barrel aged kegs all day, but the highlight of this weekend will come Sunday. J Marie Barrelled and Bretted will be hitting the tap lines again, and in addition they will be having a cellar sale. Limited quantities of rare barrel aged bombers will be available, so stock up early because once these are gone they are gone!
New Beer Releases/Events:
-Station 26 Brewing in Denver added a new beer to their lineup with a Scottish Ale.
-Wednesday, February 12 Copper Kettle Brewing Company continues their cask month of Chocolate Decadence. This week will be a Chocolate Vanilla Cream Ale. This classic American style ale has both Tahitian Vanilla Beans, and Cocoa. Tapping is at 3 and this is sure to go fast.
-Wednesday, February 12 Lone Tree Brewing will be bringing back a favorite for this time of year, My Cherie Amour a Chocolate Cherry Stout. This was very popular last year, but this year’s batch is a much smaller batch and they aren’t expecting it to make it to Friday, so arrive early to ensure you get to try this beer.
-Wednesday, February 12 in anticipation of their anniversary party River North Brewery will be tapping a keg of Scotch Barrel J Marie for Wayward Wednesday.
-Thursday, February 13 it is the second Thursday of the month and that means it is Beer and Cheese time at Copper Kettle. This monthly event I partnership with the Truffle Cheese Shop in Denver brings 4 beers and 4 cheeses for $20. This event is always fun, and educational.
-Looking ahead a little further ahead than usual next Monday, February 17 Crooked Stave will be releasing the first in their Ferus Flexus Series. The Wild Belgian Pale Ale was a first in a collaboration series and this one was made with Upslope Brewing in Boulder. Bottles are $10 each and is cash only as usual with a 4 bottle limit starting at 6. At 6:30 the draft lines will be pouring this beer for guests wanting a sample as well.
