Fresh Taps: Sept. 24th – Sept. 30th (Pre-GABF 2014)

Welcome to Fresh Taps! Each week Shea collects the most promising lineup of new and returning beers available by the glass and the occasional bottle hitting taprooms and tasting rooms all over the state. No ticket required, just a taste for great beer and a little adventure.

With nearly 100 tapping events over the next week, it’s a sign that the big one is near – The Great American Beer Festival. Everyone is gearing up, including a large number of mind-blowing tap takeovers on Monday and Tuesday. So think of this week as your pre-game, and you better get in “shape”. Whether it’s celebrating Odell’s 25th Anniversary or one of the many Oktoberfest celebrations still raging on, there is so much beer this week that you’re going to have to make some tough decisions.

Shea’s Spotlight Tappings

Each week I’ll pick a few tappings that catch my eye, and taste buds.

It’s nearly impossible to pare down this week’s list into a few recs, but I’ll give it a try…

Ernie’s Bar & Pizza is putting on a very cool tap takeover event this Friday called “Grassroots of Beer.” They’ll have nine breweries in the house, all of which will bring the beers that made a name for the brewery. You’ll see brews from Crazy Mountain, Elevation, Epic, Fort Collins, Green Flash, Ommegang, Renegade, and Twisted Pine along with ciders from Colorado Cider. See below for the full listing.

Hops & Pie turns 4-years-old this Saturday, and as they so frequently do, they’re offering a delicious list of beers. This time they’re specifically offering some rare treats from Avery, such as the Rufus Corvus and Uberschwine.

Backcountry Pizza & Tap House has been a bit quiet lately, but not this Sunday and Monday. They’re hosting two of the largest tap takeovers this week, with a 27 sour beer event on Sunday at 10 a.m., and a 15 Crooked Stave Artisans brand event on Monday. See below for the full list of both – trust me, they’re worth looking at.
