News. Sort of.

Please enjoy sarcasm today.

GABF Tickets go on sale a week from today. Which means three months from now every store in the Denver area will be trying to snake some extra business with enticing "rare beers, tastings, and meet and greets". We are not excluded, but please enjoy everything GABF week has to offer. (I'll be hammered at FreshCraft probably ever night, work permitting of course)

 Firestone Walker has yet again hit a snag on it's way into Colorado. It sounds as though this one is legal. With unfinished licensing, background checks and no Denver distributor announcement, it looks like it could be yet another month... or two... or years. Who knows. Way to go Firestone.

 It is officially unofficial that Dogfish Head has removed 60minute, Indian Brown, and Raison D'Etre from it's Colorado line-up. We should see a very limited supply of 120minute at some point. That is if Dogfish does not decide to open bottles and pour them down the drain first.

Great Divide Anniversary Party

These boys know how to throw one hell of a party. There were no fill lines or better put, lack of full cups being poured. Kegs were always on the move. Every time I went to a station there was a new beer on tap. There was plenty of good food thanks to the four food-trucks. The street was packed, the brewery packed, the lines for beer packed, but everyone seemed to be in good spirits.
Thanks to the crew at Great Divide for making it an awesome day. 

Some of the beers I sampled:

- Stupid Sexy Flanders
- Chocolate Cherry Yeti
- Bretty Yeti (Yeti brewed with brettanomyces and my Favorite)
- Belgian Yeti
- Hibernation
- Grand Cru
- Honey Wheat Lager
- 17th Anniversary
- Rumble

For those of you who missed it... Go next year. It's worth it.
Hopefully it will not conflict with Avery's Sourfest.
