Odell’s Lugene Chocolate Milk Stout is on every marquee this weekend. I tried some recently, and it tastes like chocolate milk. In a dangerously delicious way.
Ullr Fest starts Sunday up in Breckenridge. Plus, there’s snow up there. So that’s cool.
Next weekend we’ll all be up at Big Beers, Belgians, and Barley Wines in Vail. Will you?

Friday, January 4
First Friday! Of the YEAR!
Go look at art and say profound things that in reality are just projections of your 13 year old self with a bigger vocabulary. But do it in style, with a drink in each hand and a hip flask for later.
Alliteration leads to some fun weekly events. Firkin Fridays are agreat way to wind down the week and enjoy a beer of different flavor. Many breweries put some of their normal and not-so-normal offerings in a cask and serve it to you right off the engine. The following breweries and bars tend to have something to offer on Fridays:
Hops & Pie
Wine and/or Spirit Tasting
4pm – 7pm
Marczyk wine tasting, and Fairfax Wine & Spirits too! Sometimes wine, sometimes spirits, cheese always to pair with your beverages.
