Beer and Good Times, it’s Colorado Craft Beer Week

Colorado CraftBeer Week-2

Join craft brewers and craft beer lovers all across the state as they celebrate Colorado Craft Beer Week with special beer releases and events between March 21st and March 29th.

Many local breweries have a little something special planned throughout the week, with everything from beer releases, collaborations, live music, beer pairings, and much more. Some might even be cracking in to their cellars to bring out some of their delicious goodness that’s been stored away for quite some time. So pay your favorite local craft brewery a visit and enjoy their hard work!

If you can’t make it to a brewery, don’t worry. You’ll find plenty of events all over Colorado, at liquor stores, restaurants, and bars that will have your craft beer palette entertained. Shelves will see new and old favorites, tap lines filled with special collaborations or a brewery’s rare barrel series, and restaurants and cheese shops will have choices perfectly paired with beers.

Don’t be shy to try something new, our taste buds often change and what once was “not your favorite style” could now be your “thing”. Be it kolsch, brown, porter, IPA, barley wine, Lambic, or bourbon barrel aged stout, try as many as you can to find your new go to.

Enjoy Colorado Craft Beer Week and support your local craft breweries!

CO-Craft-Beer-Week-2014-480x276Join in the nine day celebration with Colorado breweries, restaurants, and pubs, March 21st through March 29th!

There will be events all over Colorado celebrating craft beer and its booming industry for nine whole days.  The events will showcase brewers, educate the public, and of course, showoff the amazing talents and creations of Colorado’s brewing world.

One of the biggest events that will kick off CCBW is the Collaboration Festival on March 22nd from 3pm to 7pm at the Curtis Hotel in downtown Denver.  Join hundreds of people and enjoy special collaboration beers from breweries all over.  The event will showcase over 35 different collaborations during the four hour festival.  Oskar Blues has teamed up with at least three other breweries to create three different beers, and both Black Bottle Brewery and New Belgium have teamed up with other breweries to create some amazing collaborations.  Some of the collabs have over five different breweries involved, and the participation from out-of-state breweries is a first for Colorado Craft Beer Week.  Official Site.

Black Bottle will also be attending the New Kids on the Block party that is going to be held at The Lobby (Denver) on Thursday, March 27th, pouring their Carlos (American Brown) and Social Insecurity (Belgian Session Ale).  This event features Colorado breweries that are less than two years old and has an 80’s theme to it.  Come wearing your best 80’s gear, as there will be a costume contest, and be ready to dance to hot 80’s jams all night while enjoying unlimited beer tastings and a beer themed buffet!  Official Site.
