Some big things are happening in the area this weekend that I believe will be worth your while. These include a brewery opening and a pub’s 50th anniversary celebration. Before I get to that, I just wanted to say quickly that Black Fox, Bristol, and Trinity were named as favorites at Wynkoop’s United Tastes of Belgium festival last week.
Pikes Peak Soft Opening
That’s right, you read it correctly, Pikes Peak Brewing up in Monument is actually going to have it’s doors open and will be serving 3 of their flagship beers. We haven’t been up to Pikes Peak since our original post, but needless to say, there’s obviously been a lot of progress up there since then. The soft opening is Friday, May 27th, and they’ll be open from about 1pm till about 11pm, depending on the crowds. They’ll have some other local beer on tap too, including beer from Bierwerks, Trinity, Rocky Mountain, and Bristol. Thanks to Eli for making this information public.

Golden Bee’s 50th Anniversary
If you make your way to the Broadmoor this weekend you’ll find the anniversary celebration of The Golden Bee. The pub opened on May 27, 1961 thanks to William Thayer Tutt, and the pub fixtures were purchased and shipped to Colorado from a pub in London for $20,000. Check the Golden Bee website for exact times and prices of admission for Friday night, Saturday and Sunday. Bristol has made an exclusive beer, called the ESBee, for this occasion.
