Whoa it’s June already? This year is flying by! We are fully into beer festival season, and pretty soon there will be one almost every weekend. Instead of our periodic bi-weekly event listings, for the summer we will be updating you on a weekly basis every Tuesday.
Tuesday June 3
Beer Bingo / Great Storm Brewing
What do you get when you combine bingo and beer? A great time. Yeah that was cheesy, but seriously, Bingo is boring without beer around. Head to Great Storm from 7-8pm and play!
Lofty/Fossil Gold Hill Java Blonde Tapping / Green Man Taproom
We’ve written about Green Man and some of the shortcomings their opening has incurred, but one thing they consistently do is put good beer on tap. Tonight is no different, with a special keg of the Lofty and Fossil Brewing Collaboration. This beer was originally tapped at the Crafters’ Festival, and Green Man Taproom was able to snag the last keg of it! Seems perfect for tonight where all Colorado Springs Beers are $2 off! Tuesdays are great nights to head to Green Man, and we’re hoping that they hit their stride this summer when the beer garden gets fully going!
Wednesday June 4
Bristol Pint Night / 503W
Head to 503W from 7-9pm on Wednesday for the Bristol Pint night. Bristol will have 4 taps flowing and the first 40 people to order a pint will receive a free pint glass to take home! We’re loving what the staff over at 503W has done with the place, being the Dutch Mill previously and everyone should go enjoy their awesome atmosphere!
Saturday June 7
Steel City Brewfest / Pueblo
Head down south this Saturday to the beautiful Pueblo Riverwalk for the Inaugural Steel City Brew Fest. This event is part of the 14th Annual Boats, Bands and BBQ Festival, presented by Loaf ‘ N Jug, an annual event that draws over 35,000 people over a two day period. Events for the festival include a KCBS BBQ competition, live entertainment, food and product vendors, Kids Fun Zone, Buffalo Wild Wings Hot Wing Eating Competition, along with other special events. Tickets are only $20 and proceeds will benefit the HARP Foundation. More info here.
Dry Dock Beer Dinner / Brewer’s Republic
Dry Dock will be pairing 5 of their beers with 5 amazing courses from Brewer’s Republic.
They’ll have Apricot Blonde, Hop Abomination, Old Ale, Double IPA and the Vanilla Porter on tap to go with each course.
Tickets available at Coaltrain and Brewer’s, but get them fast before it sells out!
Monday June 9
New Belgium and the Crystal Park Cantina in Manitou will be hosting a beer dinner on Monday! 4 courses, 4 beers, 40 bucks! Beers include Snapshot Wheat, Summer Helles, Ranger IPA and Abbey Ale paired with some great looking dishes. We’re salivating just looking at the list. To RSVP, call 719-685-5999!
Remember that on June 12 we’ll be hosting Upslope Brewing for our next Meet the Brewer at Front Range BBQ! More info here.
