Kickin’ Off Colorado Beer Week

Here we go friends.  Buckle up and hang on, because Colorado Craft Beer Week starts NOW!  There’s such an insane amount of beer events lined up for this week, that I thought it’d be helpful to post an early update.

This isn’t the mother load of lists, but rather a listing of some of the events we’re really excited about and wanted to share with all of you.  Thanks to the Colorado Brewers Guild, the master list can be found on the Colorado Craft Beer Week homepage.  I’m just afraid my fingers would fall off if I tried to list every single event.

Ongoing All Week

Oskar Blues Homemade Liquids & Solids in Longmont will devote all 44 of their taps to Colorado brews this week.  Each night, reps from your favorite local breweries will be on hand to answer questions, talk beer and giveaway some great swag.

Falling Rock Tap House is THE place to be on Monday, when you’ll be able to view the glorious sight of 80 different Colorado breweries pouring under one roof.  Yeah people, this is BIG!  $45 gets you in.  The fun starts at 7 PM (not 6 PM, like you may have heard elsewhere) and runs until 11 PM. You can buy tickets right here.  You need to go.  It’s your civic duty.  Make it happen.  Tell the King I sent you.

Weekend Beer Buzz: Doomsday Edition 12/20/2012

Great week here in Colorado.  Busy, but it’s that time of year.  We hit the Denver Only Beer Festivus last weekend.  Awesome, awesome event.  Big shout out to Denver Off The Wagon and Imbibe Denver for putting on such a kick ass event.  Get the full scoop and a ton of pics from the Mrs. and I right HERE.

So with the end of the world upon us, I highly suggest you put down the PBR and reach for something a little more sophisticated this weekend.  I’m just saying…  Whether or not you think Doomsday is actually going to rear its’ ugly head on 12.21, you’ll have plenty of great drinking options to choose from on what could be your last night on this big blue planet.

No time to lose.  There’s beer to be drank and zombies to be killed.  (In that order).

Weekend Beer Buzz 08/24/2012

Weekend.  You’re here again!  Aaah, I love you Weekend.  You’re the BEST!

This past week has been a wild one.  At work, my company dedicated an airplane to our great state.

I was on-hand to take part in the festivities and see the aircraft up close.

My work had their yearly “Spirit Party”, which bounces to a different city every year. This year it was held in Denver and we took over Coors Field for the evening.  Gotta love working for a company that had a special beer brewed just for the event.

We also had a chance this week to visit Brandon Proff over at Our Mutual Friend Malt & Brew.

This is a new brewery getting set to open in Denver in September.  Brandon met with us to talk about his project, his beers and show us around his place.  I’m putting together a post that will give you all the details on Our Mutual Friend, so stay tuned.

As if that wasn’t enough, we caught up with Bill Eye over at Prost Brewing for a Preview Party at Prost Brewing.

Amazing.  I’m in love with the brewery and the beer.  Such a great place.  There’s a ton of pics and details in an earlier blog.  Just click HERE.

This all went down during the week.  Can there really be more fun in store for the weekend? Absolutely!

I took a few extra days off this week because: 1. My beautiful wife is having a birthday this weekend! and 2. Uhm, hello, 4 days off is waaay better than 2!

So let’s do this!  You ready?

Thursday, August 23rd, 2012.

My weekend’s already in full swing.  Kick it off right now and head over to Prost Brewing. And when I say right now, I mean RIGHT NOW!  We’ve been waiting for what seems like an eternity for Bill to open his doors at Prost and today is the big day!

Bill Eye, the genius behind some great German-style beers is finally ready to share his amazing brews with you.  I’ve had ’em, I love ’em, I want more!  Run, do not walk, do not pass GO, do not collect $200! Prost Brewing is located at: 2540 19th St, Denver, CO 80211.

Oh, and come back on Saturday for a live broadcast with Gary V on American Craft Beer Radio. Scroll down for more details.

Arvada Beer recently tapped a Double IPA and Scottish Ale and should be getting ready to tap a Coffee Porter made with tasty beans from the local artisan bean roasters at Corvus Coffee.

Then he’ll drop in at Prost Brewing from 3:30 – 5 PM.  Tune into 102.3 FM to catch up on all your beer news.  Stop by Saturday evening to watch the show live, check out the new brewery and raise a liter with Bill and Gary.  Prost Brewing is located at: 2540 19th St, Denver, CO 80211.

Trinity Brewing, down in the Springs is turning 4!  Man, where does the time go?  They’ve got a day filled with live music and special beers to celebrate.

More details HERE.  The Colorado State Fair is located at: 1001 Beulah Ave, Pueblo, CO 81004.  1-800-876-4567.

That’s it.  That’s all I got and that’s all your gettin’.  Hope that lasts you for a few days.  Besides, it’s my wife’s b’day weekend.  She doesn’t know it yet, but we’ve got big plans!

I’m out.  Go have some fun, be safe and I’ll talk to you in a few.  Oh, and if anybody has any pics they’d like to share from the Prost opening or other events around town, send them to me and I’ll share with the readers on here.  brewtallyinsane@yahoo.com
