Weekend Beer Update

The Oktoberfest options continue! Many more breweries will celebrate the traditional German holiday this week, along with a culture-heavy Friday & Sunday plus lots of other interesting-looking stuff to do.

Friday 5: Get a little dose of culture with an opening reception for Bruz Beers’ artist of the month, Chris Austin, from 6 – 8 p.m.20161104_175636_hdr.jpg

Friday 5: For a big dose of culture head to First Friday Art Walk on Santa Fe Drive, where you can check out local galleries, sip beer & wine, and pay a visit to one or more craft breweries. By my count you have at least four options – Crazy Mountain Brewing Co., Black Sky Brewery, Intrepid Sojourner Beer Project and Renegade Brewing Co.

Friday 5 – Saturday 6: Longmont is first out of the gate this weekend with their Oktoberfest that spans two days and is sponsored by Left Hand Brewing Company. The festival features beer from over ten breweries, music, food and games for the whole family. Note: This is a ticketed event.

Friday 5 – Sunday 7: Get into the anniversary spirit as Blind Faith Brewing celebrates one year of beer with a whole series of barrel-aged releases.

Friday 5 – Sunday 7: Welcome Goldspot Brewing Company’s new owners at the weekend-long New Ownership Party featuring daily beer releases, rotating food trucks, music, raffles and on Sunday a dog show at 2 p.m.

Saturday 6: Beer steins, bands, music and food usher in Oktoberfest at Kokopelli Beer Company in Westminster. Kokopelli currently features an extensive lineup of German and Oktoberfest-specific beers, which I had the pleasure of trying last weekend and which I would highly recommend!

Saturday 6: Oktoberfest also rolls on down south in DTC at Halfpenny Brewing Company with all the traditions you’d expect: German food, music and of course beer! In addition, Halfpenny will have games, contests and prizes.

Saturday 6: If you’re already on the south end of town 20171108_161432_HDRfor Halfpenny, why not combine it with Locavore Beer Works’ Oktoberfest in Littleton?  They’ll tap some traditional German beers to complement their food while you watch (or participate in) yard games and stein-holding contests.

Saturday 6: Hop lovers will flock to Falling Rock Tap House for Fresh Hop Fest featuring beers from dozens of breweries created using the unique fresh-hopping process. No ticket required; just buy your hop happiness by the glass.

Intrepid Sojourner SignSaturday 6: For those more centrally-located, Intrepid Sojourner Beer Project throws down their version of Oktoberfest with a new Kölsch release, special steins, lawn games & contests and a craft market.

Sunday 7: Enjoy some ales and art at Alpine Dog Brewery’s Sunday Night Culture Club featuring the work of  Nastasja Martel.
