Denver Beer Hunter’s Report – 04/11/2014 (CBC Edition)

Here’s this week’s report:

I don’t usually post events here (except during GABF), but at special request I will.  Here’s one happening this week,  Art and beer, with some great breweries pouring.

  • Brace yourselves, CBC is coming. And the beers coming out this week will be nothing short of amazing…GREAT beer hunting week. Note that although there will be some great bottle releases, most of your beer hunting should come from the local taps.  Check out Brewtally Insane’s CBC Calendar for tons of info.
    • The releases are rolling in:
      • Drie Fonteinen Golden Doesjel
      • Fantôme Brewery Artist No. 1
      • Birra Toccalmatto/Prairie Okie Matilde
      • Evil Twin Brewing Imperial Biscotti Break, Bourbon Barrel Imperial Biscotti Break, Imperial Doughnut Break, Double Barrel Jesus, Table Beer, Falco IPA, Ryan and the Beaster Bunny Farmhouse Ale, and Low Life Pilsner, Ryan and the Gosling (collab with Crooked Stave)
      • Mikkeller Weasel Beer Geek Brunch Stout
      • Local Option Morning Wood
      • Stillwater Classique
      • Things got pretty “loony” on Wed, and if your weren’t in the know (or stuck at work, or…etc), then you missed out.
  • Trinity is releasing several of the beers in 375s!  They should start hitting this week.
  • Between The Staves, a collaboration between Crooked Stave and Anchorage, is being released at the Crooked Stave tap room on Tuesday, 4/8, @ 6PM. $17, 2 bottle limit. Not sure if it will hit store shelves. Hitting shelves now.
  • Colorado Barrel Collective Installment No. 1 should hit this week; a barrel aged old ale that is a  collaboration between Bull & Bush, Mile High Wine & Spirits and Grapevine Wine & Liquors.  Yep.
  • Oskar Blues 2014 CBC Commemorative Centennial Pale Ale.  Brewed just for the CBC attendees, you might be able to find cans at select locations as well (mostly at local bars, like Falling Rock, Star Bar, Frechcraft, etc). Store shelves is probably a no.  Also keep an eye out for Old Chub Nitro cans, which will hit stores.
  • On Saturday the 12th at noon, Boulder Beer will release their 35th Anniversary beer, an Imperial Black IPA.  The release takes place at the Boulder tap room in…um…Boulder.
  • On Sunday the 13th at noon, Copper Kettle will release Le Chapeau, a French style saison at their tap room.
  • Dogfish Head 120 Minute should hit sometime soon.

Look for more updates throughout the week (if there are any more to report).  Please share any Denver area beer release news you might have either in the comments or on Twitter @ssteigerwald.
