Well last weekend sure was a blur after doing double duty on Saturday. Rendezvous at the Rock was a blast, but so was the second night of Brewer’s Republic’s Birthday Bash. We even sat in on a ladies brew session that morning as well! Time to recover…oh wait, there’s no time for recovery.
This week, we get to start celebrating Bristol’s 20th Anniversary, as their events get going with their Buses at the Brewery! As always, there’s something for everyone, so get on out there and enjoy the amazing beer Colorado Springs has to offer! Maybe we’ll see you around!

Red Baron Oktoberfest Release
Bristol is releasing their ever popular Oktoberfest at 5pm! Make sure to get there by 5:30 for the complimentary samples and sausage bites from Meat Locker!Red Baron is, as Bristol describes it, “A hardy beer befitting the celebration and the man it commemorates, Red Baron Octoberfest is a dark lager brewed in the traditional Vienna style. Vienna and Munich malts give our Octoberfest a toasty, dry flavor and ruddy brown color that warm the heart when the leaves begin to fall.”
Hope we see you all there!

Travis, brewmaster at Fieldhouse Brewing, is turning 30! He’s inviting everyone to the party too! The Merken Food Truck will be on hand, and they’ll have live music, cake and of course their great beer! Stop in and wish Travis a Happy Birthday!
