Monday, 5pm: Falling Rock Kickoff
When the countdown clocks hits zero, we’ll wrap up the brewday and make the 4-block stroll south to Falling Rock. Their annual kickoff is always a good time mingling with fellow brewers. Falling Rock always has something barrel-aged of ours, stashed away, and this year the kickoff will include a couple of our wine-aged brews…
Wednesday, 3pm: Barrel-Aged Avarice Vertical
We’ll officially start the week in the taproom with a side-by-side tapping of our most-revered and highest-rated beer, Barrel Aged Avarice! Both 2013 and 2014 vintages will be on tap together starting when we open at 3pm. The 2013 keg is the last in the building, so this is your only chance to get it on draft!
Thursday, Noon: Quad Five Ways tapping
You know how much we love our barrel-aged Quads! We’ll open early at noon on Thursday, with five distinct and delicious varieties: classic Quandary, Whiskey Barrel Quandary 2013, Whiskey Barrel Quandary 2015, Big City Quad and Quad XO! All kegs tap when the doors open at noon, and we’ll keep some low-grav brews on as well. As always, all draft beer will be available in taster sizes.
Friday, Noon: Cellar Bottle Sale
A GABF tradition, on Friday we’ll dig into the bottle cellar and offer rare brews from throughout our history. All bottles will be available a-la-carte, to drink here or take home. Look for an official list closer to GABF week, but multiple vintages of Anniversary Ale and Whiskey J. Marie will be included, as well as such rarities as Barrel Aged Avarice, Barrel Reserve 2014 and Oud Bruin. All bottles will be first-come, first-served, starting when we open at noon.
Friday, 1pm: Denver Rare Beer Tasting
One of our favorite events of GABF week, we’ll join brewers from around the country for our third appearance at the sold-out Denver Rare Beer Tasting. For those attending, make sure to come taste some Anniversary Ale #3, and drink some truly special brews while benefitting Pints for Prostates!
Saturday, Noon: Corundum Release Party!
The premiere taproom event of the week, join us as we release Corundum, a tart Belgian-style red aged in red wine barrels with cherries. Corundum will be available on tap and in bombers-to-go. Look for a full announcement in the coming weeks.
Sunday, 10am: Finale Beer Brunch @ Brazen
We’ve teamed up with the culinary wizards at Brazen for a decadent brunch to finish the week. Three courses (plus a finishing bite), each paired with a beer chosen by the chefs, including the last keg of Whiskey J. Marie to leave the brewery. Menu and ticket link below!
Tickets are only $30, but seats are limited…snag a couple just by clicking here!
Hard to believe GABF is only two weeks away. We’re only a mile from the convention center, so make the walk and come see us!
