Geez! It sure is hot out there! We hope you’re all finding great ways to battle this heat! Cold beverages and high altitudes don’t hurt, but if you find yourself looking for a place to head this week, check out these options! You’ll probably see us at more than one of them!
As usual, as we hear of things, we’ll update this as long as the event isn’t sold out or already in the past!
Bristol Brewing – Forgotten Genius Knob Hill Station Imperial Rye Release!
Bristol Brewing is releasing the next of their Forgotten Genius series on Monday. This was originally slated to come out last Thursday, but due to a brewhouse hiccup, it was postponed to Monday.
Come drink a toast with Bristol in the Pub June 20 at 5:30!
About the beer: Imperial means everything about this RyePA is simply bigger. And at an ABV of 9%, you’ll definitely feel it. But that’s not all this beer has to offer. 25% rye means there’s a bit of spice, and Simcoe hops lends its characteristic earthiness, for high voltage flavor and character. What the heck is Knob Hill? Nikola Tesla, the inspiration for our new Forgotten Genius 4-pack Series, lived and worked in Colorado Springs in 1899, conducting electrical experiments at his experimental station on Knob Hill, just northeast of downtown Colorado Springs. He felt he made some of his most important discoveries here.
Gold Camp Brewing – Experimental Brewsday Tuesdays
For the next two Experimental Brewsday Tuesdays, we’ll be doing two variations of a cream ale. The first one will be a cream ale with fresh ripe strawberries added to secondary fermenation. We’re calling this one “I Will Wait” Strawberry Cream Ale. We think you’re going to like it!

Fieldhouse Brewing – Test Tap Wednesday: Experimental Blonde
Garret’s brewing up a light and refreshing blonde ale for Test Tap! Taylor will be here with Treehouse BBQ to cook up a delicious pairing for dinner! Bring your friends and your appetite, and come try out this new blonde!
At 5pm this Friday, head to Trinity Brewing for their latest sour beer release, this time a lulo/tamarind sour.
Lulo is a citrus-like fruit that grows on a small shrub or tree. It is native to the northwest region of South America, but in Panama and Ecuador (and parts of the United States), this delicious, tangy little fruit is called naranjilla. The flavor of lulo is very distinctive and tart, and some people would compare it to a pineapple, or even a combination of lime and rhubarb.
Ripened Tamarind fruit is considered the more palatable than its unripened fruit, as it becomes sweeter and less sour (acidic) as it matures. It is used in desserts, as a jam, blended into juices, or sweetened drinks, sorbets, ice creams and other snacks. In Western cuisine, it is found in Worcestershire sauce. In most parts of India, tamarind extract is used to flavor foods ranging from meals to snacks, and tamarind sweet chutney is popular in India as a dressing for many snacks.
We will have giant jenga, cornhole, giveaways, and more! Treehouse BBQ and Lucy I’m Home will be here to feed you! We are bringing back SIX of our favorite Test Taps! They tap every 2 hours starting at noon!
We have the whole parking lot closed off this year for the party, so make sure to park on Moreno to our south, if you want to park for free, and enter in the front door of the taproom. You will need your ID with you as we will be checking ALL ID’s when you come in.
