Weekend Beer Update

This Friday serves up a double dose of city-wide events with the Rockies home opener and First Friday art walks. Numerous breweries and taprooms in the vicinity of Coors Field are putting out special releases or lining up special brews to help fans celebrate the season opener.  In the evening you can take in the culture of First Friday art walks along Santa Fe, Tennyson Street or RINO, stopping at numerous breweries in each of those neighborhoods. As far as specific weekend events . . .
