This is one of the blog’s events! We’re excited to announce that Crabtree Brewing, from Greeley, will be the next visitors in our ongoing Meet the Brewer series! Crabtree knocked our socks off the first time we tried their Berliner Weiss nearly a year ago. It was a perfect beer, delicate, lightly tart, simple but packed with flavor and so wonderful to drink. We’re bringing down brewer Andrew Sheffield, who works in their barrell program and played a part in the making of Menage a Trois. This beer won a Silver medal at this year’s World Beer Cup in the Braggot Category and was previously only available to Crabtree Beer Club members. The Ginger Bee, Serenity Amber, and Boxcar Brown are also very solid mainline beers that we will get to see on tap for the first time in Colorado Springs. We’ll also have door prizes, including gift certificates to Front Range BBQ!
