Drink Local: January 14-20


As we head into the third week of January, hopefully you have recovered from the holidays and are getting back into the normal routine of fun, local beer releases and events (or perhaps just recovering from Big Beers in Breckenridge this past weekend). There are some exciting events happening this week, including a Fremont Brewing takeover at Brewer's Republic, the start of game nights and a FUN-draiser at Atrevida, FH Beerworks releasing their first batch on the new brew system, and the release of a cannibas terpene IPA (can you get more "Colorado"?) and a Rocky Horror Picture shadowcast all weekend at Local Relic. Still staying strong for dry-anuary? You may want to consider damp-anuary instead..* Denotes a recurring event
