Beer Filled Events Starting Thursday

Thurs. Jan. 12th / 5pm
Bristol Releases English Old Ale
At Bristol Brewing

Bristol Brewing is kicking it up a notch with their new specialty releases and their new designs and we are really stoked for them. Be there when the beer is released to the public. Here's some notes from the brewery: a huge and hearty winter warmer that has been bottle conditioning since August 2011. This very traditional ale is medium-bodied and singularly malty, supplying sweet caramel undertones and age-related character at every turn.

Oh! and that reminds me...the general and VIP tickets to this year's Firkin Rendezvous just went on sale. This is definitely one of the better festivals of the year and I give it a high recommendation. The event is set for Feb 18th at Bristol, call 719-633-2555 x11 to reserve.

Fri. Jan 13th / 5pm
Black Fox Release Somnombulance
At Bristol Brewing

On your way to the Meet the Brewer event later in the evening you should stop by the Bristol Brewing taproom and try the newest batch of Somnombulance. This is one of Black Fox's famous beers, absolutely cherished by the locals and guaranteed to sell out quickly. A description of Somnombulance: A very rich Belgian brown ale brewed with coffee beans, vanilla beans and Ghirardelli caramel.

Fri. Jan 13th / 7pm
Meet the Brewer (and owner): Oskar Blues
At Another Pint: 13860 Gleneagle Dr.

Then on Friday night you've gotta head up to Another Pint for the special opportunity to meet the brewer as well as the owner of Oskar Blues. You can hang out and ask them questions...or just stare at them. They'll be bringing three specialty beers with them along with an old classic. We are co-sponsoring this event so we'd love to see you there!.
