There are a bunch of great local and regional beer events coming up in the next two weeks, so if you’re looking for something to do beer-wise, definitely check these out! There’s something for everyone from our Meet the Brewer event to tappings, releases and one big festival.
Venetucci Pumpkin Ale Release date has been announced!
Also, see the bottom for a list of upcoming events that require reservations.
Thurs. Oct 3rd
We’ve been looking forward to this event since we first saw Ro Guenzel, head brewer at Left Hand Brewing, give a beautiful presentation about Smoked Beer at the Vail Big Beer Festival. Ro has a profound attachment to smoke and many of his specialty beers used smoked grain, smoked pepper, and the like. Smoke, of course, has a long history in the lives of humans; if you wanted to be warm, if you wanted to cook, if you wanted to brew beer, smoke was an inevitable part of the process. Brewers went to great lengths to remove smokey character in beer, but now many brewers are interested in ways to bring that character back into the beer. For our Meet the Brewer event on October 3rd, Ro Guenzel will tell us more about smoke and give a slideshow presentation about the many smoked beers that Left Hand creates. More details here.

Tuesday Oct. 8th
As beer lovers from around the country gather in Denver to celebrate the Great American Beer Festival and the Denver Beer Fest, we thought we would give these beery visitors a taste of the great state of Colorado. Beers Made By Walking has invited seventeen breweries across the state to take a hike, literally, and then make specialty beers inspired by the edible and medicinal plants found along the trail. These seventeen beers, made specifically for this event, will be available for one night, Tuesday, October 8th, at Wynkoop in Denver. More details here.
Tickets will be available at Wynkoop on the night of the event or you can purchase them in advance here.
Thursday Oct. 10th
RyePA Release Party/6pm
Bristol Brewing Company/1604 S. Cascade
Join Bristol this Thursday, October 10, for the release of their RyePA and musical performance by The Myth of Modern Medicine. With its rich copper color and exquisitely hoppy nose, Bristol’s RyePA impresses at the very start. From there, bright, citrusy hop flavor takes center stage, set against a more subtle but solid malt profile. The rye malt lends its characteristic crispness, making this a highly refreshing addition to our Brewhouse Series.
Thursday Oct. 10th – Saturday Oct. 12th
Great American Beer Festival/5:30pm
