2 Big Events this Week
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!
