The big events in town this week are the All Colorado Beer Festival on the weekend and earlier in the week Great Storm Brewing is throwing a big Halloween Party. Check out the details below:

Great Storm Brewing Halloween Party 
Oct. 31st / Starting at 11am / 204 Mount View Lane in Colorado Springs.
Wear a costume and get your first pint of beer for $1. Great Strom will have a slew of special small batch beers just for this event, including:

  • Pompion Ale – an unspiced golden ale made from nearly 100 lbs of roasted pumpkins, based on a recipe published by Benjamin Franklin 
  • Gdansk Gdansk Revolution – our tribute to the Solidarity movement that eventually ended communism in Poland, this beer is a Baltic porter spiced with Polish bay leaves. 
  • Death Star Imperial Stout – the big brother to Stephen Shelton’s Dark Side Ale we served during our Midsummer party – we only have about 24 servings of this special high gravity beer, so first come, first served.

Looks like they’re going all out for this party!
