Making noise in the blogosphere with beer.
Colorado Beer Week begins April 8th with a very unique keg tapping at Blake St. Tavern from 5:30 to 8:30. Hosted by New Belgium Brewing and partnering with 15 Colorado microbreweries it’s sure to be an amazing event. $40 dollars gets you into Blake St. Tavern as well as all the beer you could possibly desire for three hours. It’s a Chinese buffet of craft beer people.
For an additional $5 you’ll have the VIP pass for the event. You can start drinking 30 minutes early (5pm) and this gives you the opportunity to try all the beer before they run out. Drinking early also gives you a chance to talk to the brewers themselves about the craft beer being served before the lines of people begin shortening face time.There might even be a celebrity keg taping at this years Colorado Beer Week; you’ll just have to buy your ticket and find out- won’t you?
Let me take a moment and give you a sampling of what Colorado microbreweries will be at Blake St. Tavern for the opening ceremonies of Colorado Beer Week.
