Not sure if you have plans for New Years, but Pikes Peak Brewing is throwing a pretty good looking party. They will have dancing, unlimited hors d'oeuvre, and special beer releases throughout the night. Tickets are $45 and include all the above plus 2 drinks and a champagne toast. Driving sucks on new years, so they also have a special room rate at the neighboring Sundance Mountain Lodge. The specialty beers for the night are:
8:00 - Oaked Elephant / Our IPA aged in whiskey barrels. While there is almost no whiskey taste imparted, the barrel mellows the hop flavor and ads a touch of oak.
9:00 - Gold Rush Du Brett / We took the Gold Rush Belgian Ale and used the wild yeast, Brettanomyces, to dry it out and impart a earthy organic flavor.
10:00 - Oaked AdAmAn / Our famous Holiday ale aged for several weeks in freshly dumped red wine barrels.
11:00 - Wild Horses Porter / A slightly soured version of our Bear Creek Porter. Not quite as sweet with tart notes of raspberries. This one is delicious and not what you would expect from a beer.
Monumental New Year's Eve / Dec. 31 / 7pm-12:30am / $45
