I’ve been wrestling with what to call the local event posts recently. I think I’ve settled on the Brew News, or Springs Brew News to be more specific. Here’s where events and happenings will be posted for each week so you can find out where and when all the great beer will be flowing. This month is pretty special, with multitudes of beer releases, beer dinners, Space-themed beer festivals and more!
Wednesday, August 6
Brewer’s Republic is hosting a Green Flash tapping with some great west coast IPA’s and others from Green Flash. Tapping starts at 4. We’ll be there!
Also, 503W is hosting an Epic Brewing Pint night, where bombers are $6 and you get a pint glass while they have them! You know we love glassware…
Thursday, August 7
Meet the Brewer: River North Brewery. If you haven’t heard about our Meet the Brewer series, here it is in a nutshell: we bring in some awesome breweries, put a bunch of their beers on tap, and let you hear about their beer directly from the horse’s mouth. It’s always a great time, and this week’s event is no different. Head on over to Facebook to see what’s going to be on tap.

Local Breweries, Brews and Space Technology
Who knew beer was high-tech?!? Don’t miss this special beer tasting event at the Discovery Center! Learn about how beer – yes beer – has gone high-tech, using space technology throughout the process, from planting barley to refrigeration, shipping and more.
Local breweries will be here with top flight brews for your sampling pleasure. Purchase of a $24 bracelet gets you into the beer tasting and includes one complimentary admission to the Discovery Center. Our special partners at Beer Drinkers Guide to Colorado will be on hand to put this all in perspective, answer questions and show you why space technology makes better beer.
