Colorado Craft Beer Week kicked off last weekend with the Collaboration Fest, and all week long there have been special tappings and beer events all around the state. This weekend wraps up the annual celebration of Colorado craft beer, but there are still plenty of events on the schedule to end the festivities with a bang! Today we’re highlighting some of the events lined up for this weekend, but for a full schedule of CCBW events visit the Colorado Craft Beer […]
It’s Friday and it’s Valentine’s Day. Queue up the Cure’s “Friday I’m in Love” and celebrate with the one you love…. BEER. This Valentine’s Day Jeff and I have decided to stay in, cook up some penne with homemade vodka sauce, and maybe even crack open that acrylic painting kit I got for Christmas (2012) that’s been collecting dust. Yessiree, it’s going to be a romantic night of penne & painting for us, maybe paired […]
Wow! Time sure does fly when you’re having fun, and especially if that fun involves some delicious craft brews.

It would be silly to go all that way and not have a pint. In solidarity, I had a Breakwater Pale Ale. We would each have one, and then we would be on our way home to finish our Sunday […]
We celebrated the end of the work week at Dry Dock Brewing for happy hour for their Friday firkin. Firkins are hit or miss with us. I like the experimental brews and will try them whenever and wherever they’re offered. Jeff on the other hand, doesn’t really like messing with a good thing. Since he’s not a big fruit or flavored beer fan, he often tries them but rarely thinks they’re better than the original. This week […]
I’ll admit right away that our visit to Dry Dock Brewing Co in Aurora was really sort of an accident. We actually had to make a run to The Brew Hut for some homebrewing supplies, and being that Dry Dock is attached to The Brew Hut it seems almost rude to not pop in for a pint.
