Last week we went out to a few different restaurants and checked out their beer lists. We wanted to point them out for you. Of course Front Range BBQ is great, we put them on our top 5 beer spots of Colorado Springs, and we do spend some time there. But they had a few great beers on tap, including a Cuvee de Jacobins and a St. Louis Geueze. In the bottle they boast a list of about 40 beers ranging from Jolly Pumpkin, Funkwerks, Crooked Stave, Kissmeyer, Mikkeller, and much more. There’s always some good Belgian specialties and sometimes some French Saisons as well. I’m always impressed with their list and their atmosphere.

Later we headed over to The Blue Star because we heard that on Thursdays you get half off bottles. It’s true, I only had to pay $7.50 for a whole bottle of Avery’s new Muscat d’ Amor. They’ve got all sorts of beer from The Bruery, Boulevard, Funkwerks, Avery, Ommegang, and also some overseas greats from Brasserie Dupont, d’Achouffe, Timmermans, and Lindemans. About 40 bottled beers altogether. While we were there they tapped Dogfish Head’s Noble Rot, so it was fun to try two beers side by side that had heavy doses of grape fermentables. Perhaps some of these are more expensive than you’d want, some have better prices, and the atmosphere is mostly restaurant-style but on half-off Thursdays it’s pretty stinking hard to beat.
Just a head’s up!
