This weekend brings an interesting mix of events across the metro area, from festivals to anniversaries and a few interesting one-offs. If you have some time to kill, it’s also not too early to book tickets to the Day of Dorks at Wynkoop on March 9 where you can geek out to some wild and wacky beers!
Friday 18 – Sunday 20: Greeley’s Wiley Roots Brewing Company just completed their brewery expansion and it’s so big they’ve set aside a whole weekend to celebrate. Starting Friday they’ll begin releasing five new beers accompanied, of course, by brewery tours. Note the new address: 625 3rd Street Unit D.
Saturday 19: Another event up north, Verboten Brewing & Barrel Project in Loveland will turn its taproom into a Stout-lover’s heaven by pouring 20 different stouts at their inaugural Stout Fest. Many of these will be taproom-only pours including small-batch and barrel-aged releases. The ticketing situation is mixed: you can buy an unlimited-sampling ticket, get a 10-beer punch card or go a-la-carte and purchase individual samples.
Saturday 19 – Sunday 20: Up in Golden, Cannonball Creek Brewing Company celebrates six years with special tappings, food, and live music.
Saturday 19: Starting at noon, Stem Ciders also celebrates an anniversary; five years at their Walnut Street location in Rino. They’ll have bluegrass music to accompany their special releases along with free swag for the first 50 attendees. Thought not exactly beer, these guys have some tasty, tasty ciders!
Saturday 19: Prost Brewing hosts a rebranding party starting at 3 p.m. While it sounds like a bit of a stretch for a party theme, who really needs an excuse to check out some delicious Prost German-style beers (not changing with the rebranding) and the new logos and updated taproom?
Sunday 20 – Seedstock Brewery hosts it’s weekly Bluegrass Jam from 4 – 6 p.m. Bring your own instrument to join in or just kick back and enjoy the jam and a beer.
