Winter Brew Fest on Friday, January 22nd at Mile High Station right here in town. It will feature beers tons of great breweries including Alaskan, Big Sky, Bristol, Del Norte, Fort Collins, Left Hand, Odell, Twisted Pine, Avery, Boulder Beer, Great Divide, Oskar Blues, Ska, Upslope, Wynkoop, Breckenrdige, Blue Moon, Flying Dog, Mountain Sun, Pyramid, Stone, and Sierra Nevada. Regular tickets are $30 in advance and $35 at the door for unlimited tastings and a souvenir glass, but they also have a VIP option for $10 more that includes admittance an hour early and a special beer & cheese pairing by Sierra Nevada and Avery.
Then just over a week later, Boulder Beer Company will be hosting their third annual Beer Rave on Saturday, January 30th. For just $25 you'll get to sample rare craft beer from around the country and they promise "this is NOT your typical Colorado beer festival." Tickets are on sale for $25 at their web store.
I'm about to head out of town for the next 10 days, so this might be my last post until next year. Merry Christmas & Happy New Year!
