The Super Bowl is behind us and we are now officially into February. Even though the Denver was not successful on Sunday Denver still has better beer than Seattle. This week once again proves that with new brewery openings, and new beer releases. Here is what is happening in the week ahead.  
New Brewery Openings
After much anticipation and what has been a long time coming Former Future Brewing Company will finally be opening their doors to the masses. Friday, February 7 they will be celebrating their grand opening. Look for there to be 5 beers on tap including an English IPA, Belgian Wit, Robust Porter, Salted Caramel Porter, and a 100% Brett Fermented Farmhouse IPA. As the beers continue Former Future will also be releasing barrel aged beers in limited releases as well as bottles. This brewery is sure to be a great addition to Denver, and will be worth checking out for grand opening and many times after that.
